Shocking Blue –Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Shocking Blue –Out of Sight, Out of Mind/I Like You –Pink Elephant PE 22.056-Y 60 (1971 Belgian issue)
Sometimes you can get stuck in reviewing obscure records mainly for obscurity sake, but once in a while a better known act released a classic tune that you were not aware of. This is the case here with a tune that has all ingredients to give shivers down your spine. Out of Sight, Out of Mind was a top 6 hit in Holland at the time and it’s simply glorious. The pulsating saxes pumping along during the dead simple, but Purely Pop chorus is just one of those magic moments I crave for. Mariska’s vocals are ace, understated, but oh so present...Oh, and the backing groove probably really influenced The Garnets too...

Hear a full version of Out of Sight, Out of Mind.
