The She Trinity 'He Fought the Law'

We haven't had any 60s garage rock for a while so here's a cracker- The Bobby Fuller Four's I Fought The Law, famously covered by The Clash in 1979, re-done earlier by girl group The She Trinity as He Fought The Law. Her boyfriend did it, and lost. It falls somewhere in between Bobby Fuller's version and Joe, Mick, Paul and Topper's. It turned up on a great cd compilation from the middle of last year- 'Destroy That Boy: More Girl Guitar Groups From The 60s'. They say cd is dying, and I don't suppose too many people will mourn it, but it is a great format for 20 plus track compilation albums.
