Francois le Sinner- Madame Robinson/ Yummy, Yummy, Yummy

Francois le Sinner (aka Francois Guy) was a busy guy back in the 60s and 70s.  He was a member of Les Sinners and La Revolution Francaise.  But while playing in Les Sinners he cut this 45 featuring two very recognizable songs, Mrs. Robinson and Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. 

Francois Guy was born in Montreal in 1947 and at the age of 18 he formed Les Sinners.  In 1968 he quit to start La Revolution Francaise.  Their sound evolved from the rock/ pop sound of Les Sinners to more of a psychedelic feel that dominated the era.

This 45 is one of my favourites from this time period. The beginning of "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy" has some super fuzzed out guitar and at first listen sounds just like the opening notes of "Just What I Needed" by The Cars.

This was a dollar bin find and is certainly worth every penny.  The sleeve was not original and the label is pretty scuffed but the vinyl itself is surprisingly clean.  I am not sure what these are selling for these days but I am sure it is more than $1.
