WEST COAST POP ART EXPERIMENTAL BAND - SHIFTING SANDS



WEST COAST POP ART EXPERIMENTAL BAND - '1906' / 'Shifting Sands' (Reprise 0552) February 1967

I'm currently researching Baker Knight. He is mostly known as being a rockabilly recording artist in the late 50s and early 60s with his backing band The Knightmares. Big names including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded his songs.

Baker's song "The Wonder Of You" was a big hit for Elvis.

However, in his early 30s, during the years 1966/67 he was writing some happenin' songs. Don't know if readers are aware of this but The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band recorded two Baker Knight songs for their album "Part One"

These were the ultra great "Shifting Sands", also released as a single and an old song from around 1964 called "If You Want This Love"... this song was released as a 45 by Sonny Knight.


"Part One" released May 1967
