CZERWONO-CZARNI, Sweet Little Sixteen, 1961Posted: April 24, 2010
Czerwono-Czarni are one of my favorite polish beat groups. They might not have been the wildest but they put out a lot of great records in the 60´s.
They backed many pop singers in the 60´s too, among them Karin Stanek:
On this first EP of the “Red and Blacks” they´re dishing out some cover versions of Chuck Berry´s Sweet Little Sixteen, Cliff Richard´s Apron Strings, Tommy Steele´s Elevator Rock and Bill Haley´s When The Saints Go Rock´n´Roll.
Unlike on their later releases Janusz Godlewski (Sweet Little Sixteen, Apron Strings) and Marek Tarnowski ( Elevator Rock, When The Saints) are singing in English here. Or at least it sounds like English.
It doesn´t really matter because they´re rockin´their polish souls out…
