Daily Discovery - Yoshiko b/w Everybody Says Don't by The J's with Jamie Mod Belgian Popcorn Soul 45 on Columbia Records #43017
The song starts with a gong, but it's no dud. A trombone, a killer back beat, an organ along with along with other percussion instruments. One of the most interesting instruments on this catchy cut is Jamie's voice. She brings a playfulness by lowering her voice to give it a sexy, raspy feel. She also takes it up a few pitches to the voice we normally associate with the Japanese female voice. Who is Jamie? Her real name is Jamie Silvia and she was a heard more often in households across the nation through her advertising jingles, rather than with her stint in the "J's with Jamie" group.
