BONGO BOY RECORDS
New Release of 1967 Procol Harum's A WHITER SHADE OF PALE
Zombie Garden Club aka Johnny Douglas
If you thought Zombie Garden Club is all Fuzztones. Eternal Garage of the expanding mind. Fenders. Vintage tube amps. Vox Continentals. Yardbirds. Seeds. Standells. Blues Magoos. Did we mention fuzztones? Thumping kicks. Cracking snares. Retro/modern. Kinda loud. Kinda now, you are in for a BIG surprise.
Today Johnny Douglas, who is THE FORCE behind and front-man of Zombie Garden Club, shows us with this new single of the cover song A WHITER SHADE OF PALE, a more powerful emotional side. When Bongo Boy Records received the first recording we were all fighting back our tears; as it touched us and filled us with emotions. We were all totally stunned and totally surprised of Johnny's vocals skills. WOW !
In 2015 Bongo Boy Records released Zombie Garden Club first album and we never would have thought that Johnny would create this beauty today. Bongo Boy Records is proud to present for the USA market only this 1967 wonder. We all hope you will enjoy A WHITER SHADE OF PALE by Zombie Garden Club aka Johnny Douglas. This single is pure.

From Nashville, TN, USA - A WHITER SHADE OF PALE | ZOMBIE GARDEN CLUB | "There are some songs that are more than songs. They resonate and echo and they last. They make you feel something unique to that song.
A Whiter Shade of Pale is that song for me. First released in 1967 by Procol Harum it defines something of an era when anything was possible.
It breaks your heart. And it melts your heart. And it mends your heart. I stripped the song down to just me on piano playing and singing and tried to get inside it. It was fun. And it felt good. I hope the listener feels it too." - Johnny Douglas.
