The Casuals –Tara Tiger Girl

The Casuals –Tara Tiger Girl/Nature’s Child –Parlophone R5959 (1972 UK)

Tara Tiger Girl was sandwiched between The CasualsDecca period and The Witch on Dawn in 1974.
The Casuals at this time were most likely Ex-World of Oz Chris Evans and his Kansas Hook/ American Jam Band cronies in full-on Pure Pop mode. Nature’s Child also appeared as the B side of The American Jam Band’s American Jam single.
Tara Tiger Girl is a fine Psych/Pop number very much like The Move circa 1968 albeit with a vocalist sounding a lot like Anthony Newley in very tight loons! The tune is damn catchy anyhow, with some nice Psych touches. Enjoy the fun!

Hi Robin,

A search for this song lead me indirectly to you. How interesting.

And speaking of Anthony Newley, one of the lady ice skaters used "Feelin' Good" as their music last night. I actually have the cast recording for Roar of the Greasepaint (from Village Music of course - RIP). I know mist folks like the Nina Simone version tho my first hearing was Traffic's.

Christy & I are well in the hills of San Jose. Absolute best to you.
