On the Peruvian hit parade

Well, maybe not the current Peruvian hit parade, but this middle-Sixties artifact, a cover of a Van Morrison classic, is great fun:

Issued on the Sono Radio label in 1966, “Gloria” was Los Doltons’ second single; they broke up in 1970 but reformed in 1985. Perhaps the biggest double-take I did on first hearing this band was discovering that they’d covered Miriam Makeba’s “Pata Pata.”
