Listen People (Sarah Jane)

29 MAY 1966


Listen People' had already been a hit for Herman's Hermits earlier in 1966, and it was also recorded by a mysterious person called 'Sarah Jane' during this month. It never made the charts, and there seems to be no information out there on who Sarah Jane actually was or what became of her. but this delicately orchestrated version is arguably better than the Hermits' take on it. Her soft approach to the vocals is quite reminiscent of Marianne Faithfull or Vashti Bunyan. One of those nice obscure gems that seemed to proliferate around the mid-60s.
