You're Obsolete My Baby

'You're obsolete my baby' is a pretty cutting line. So is much of the rest of this Jagger-Richards written song, taken to number one in 1966 by the great voice of Chris Farlowe and some very cool strings. Mick Jagger's songs from the mid-60s often showed some fairly neanderthal attitudes (see also Under My Thumb amongst others) but if we can leave that to one side this is a cracker of a single, recorded for Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label. Wiki adds the following line to his page- 'Outside his music career, Chris Farlowe collects war memorabilia.'

Funny I was just drafting two seperate blogs (for later publication) on two Farlowe Immediate 45's!
