a holiday letter from bojoura to the mops

Sadly, Bojoura‘s cover version of The letter(1974, originally by the Box Tops) is absent from Rev-Ola’s so-called compilation but in actual fact straight reissue (2010-03-29) ofNight Flight (Night Sight)(Polydor 1968), which isn’t even filled to the brim with 7″ only bonus tracks. (RevOla‘s website seems to suggest otherwise … Not including extra’s is a bit of a missed opportunity, imho.) Oh well, I guess we’ll have to hope for a reissue of Bojoura‘s second album The Beauty Of(CBS 1970) to get hold of her Box Tops cover. Meanwhile, here’s her 1967 version of the Bee GeesHoliday“, which we’d already featured in Astrud Gilberto’s version here … As for “The letter”, see also http://uzine.posterous.com/im-alex-chilton for the original + do give this excellent version by the Mops from Japan a listen too:
