SONNY AND CHER - 'I've Got You Babe'/'It's Gonna Rain' (Atlantic AT 4035) July 1965
A Los Angeles retrospective would be laughed at without the inclusion of a Sonny & Cher song so flip over the mega hit 'I've Got You Babe' and spin the B-Side 'It's Gonna Rain'. The latter has a wonderfully incessant bass line that bursts through my JAMO dynamic d4e speakers and Bono's gruff folk punk vocals really shine.
Here's a picture of a nonchalant looking Sonny Bono from the cover of KRLA Beat May 1966. He's looking every inch the King of the Sunset Strip as he sits knowingly on his throne. Cher positions herself next to her master on the floor. He pats her head like he would a faithful companion. What a guy!
