23 May 2013 - Mary's Danish - Foxey Lady (sic)

Not Alice Donut.  Mary's Danish.  And not an homage, but named for an early failed songwriting attempt by Gretchen Seager and Julie Ritter, the two ladies who fronted the band.

The best blues/rock band from L.A. with the 2-part female harmonies to emerge in the early 90's came at us with a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady".  They, of course, didn't know how to spell "foxy", but that's OK.   For this song, performed for their live EP (Live + Experience) the band brought in a bass-heavy trippy sound to complement the song's strengths and history.
