Les Beryls – Tom Dooley (Madagascar, 1962, Rex)

Following this former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Tom Dooley“, a sweet catchy Soul Pop Chanson track with Jazz influences & nice banjo parts, French cover of a classic American song.

This song is taken from the 1st EP recorded in September 1962 on the legendary label “Discomad” run by the “De Comarmond” family on Madagascar island (that used to own the only pressing plant of all over Madagascar island !) by “Les Beryls“, a quite unknown group (until this time !) composed of 6 sisters & brothers : Coco, Dave, Monikya, Nicole, Pat and Rocky Rabaraona.

After changing their name for “Les Surfings” and releasing only one single under that name on the label “Discomad“, the band became very famous in France a few years later under the name “Les Surfs“, releasing many albums & singles in France including many covers in French of great American standards (including nice ones from Dusty Springfield or The Ronettes !) before splitting in 1971.

Rare as hen’s teeth only EP, real piece of Madagascar musical history with a gorgeous cover art, hope you’ll like – Enjoy !
