A little treasure I have discovered while scrolling through one of my favorite blogs, Aquarium Drunkard. I have found this rare 45 of a cover version of Reach out ( the Four tops), and this is what AD is saying: ” A couple of years ago I had Le Switch guest DJ my radio show. The stacks they were pulling from consisted of a lot of old Motown, Stax and Harry Nilsson (and I think even a track off a Ringo Starr solo joint). One band I hadn’t heard of was The Ox-Bow Incident, a sixties garage band from Brooklyn, NY named after the 1943 western of the same name. The strength of their version of the Four Tops “Reach Out (I’ll Be There)“ just begs for release on an underground garage rock comp. Check it out”…
About Le Switch: They’re a Los Angeles based rock ‘n’ roll band fronted by singer/guitarist Aaron Kyle. Le Switch got their start in 2006 when Kyle recruited drummer Joe Napolitano, trumpet/viola player Maria DeLuca, bass player Christopher Harrison and keyboard player Josh Charney. Local bloggers like Aquarium Drunkard, LAist, You Set the Scene, Radio Free Silver Lake, Amateur Chemist, Rock Insider and Passion of the Weiss praised their EP and their passionate live performances. The band’s debut LP, And Now… Le Switch might bring to mind early-1970’s records like Ram, Nilsson Schmilsson, Muswell Hillbillies and Leon Russell’s Carney mixed with a touch of Dr. Dog.
