The Sidewinders - "The Flight of the Bumblebee"

"From the summer of 1972, please enjoy perhaps unjustly forgotten NYC proto-glam rock punks The Sidewinders and their surf guitar/raga version of Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakoff's immortal "Theme From The Green Hornet," a/k/a "The Flight of the Bumblebee."
...Incidentally, the reason these guys are even a footnote to rock history is that the album was a) produced by the great Lenny Kaye, of Patti Smith Group fame; b) it featured Andy Paley, who would later collaborate with Brian Wilson and do lots of other interesting stuff..."

Listen & download the song here:

By the way, the PowerPopCriminalsBlog download link of The Sidewinders' album mentioned in the original blogposting of this post is not the same band! The real original album cover is below...
