"Boite De Nuit" means "Nightclub." The flip side, "Frissons D'Autocars" is an instrumental that's not as groovy. Download: Boite De Nuit

To be fair, Robert Walsh from "The" Mark Chapman Experience said he thought it actually sounded better that way, but in the interest of historical accuracy I'm re-posting it at the correct speed of 33-1/3 RPMs. Robert from "The" Mark Chapman Experience also gave me the low-down on this 7" and it's some pretty interesting Texas music history, to w…
