The Gentrys - Cinnamon Girl



Another cool cover tune here @ the devil's music w/ The Gentrys doing some Neil Young.... The Gentrys were an American band of the 1960s and early 1970s best known for their 1965 hit "Keep on Dancing" (in 1971 also a #9 hit for the Bay City Rollers). Follow-up singles charted outside of the top 40: "Every Day I Have To Cry" (1966), "Spread It On Thick" (1966), "Cinnamon Girl" (1970), "Why Should I Cry" (1970), "Wild World" (1971), and a 'Bubbling Under' Billboard chart entry "Brown Paper Sack" (#101, 1966).

here is the The Gentrys Wiki if you so desire.....

Kind of an odd choice of a cover since it is right around the time the original came out and it does not veer of the beaten patch, but an oddity on the Sun label you don't see too often.
