JDIZZY's 365 # 207: Avenging Annie

Avenging Annie - Andy Pratt (1973)

Thank you Velvet Goldmine for putting this song in your film, but not on the soundtrack. You forced me to go internet exploring for years, eventually finding out about Mr. Pratt. Andy Pratt put out one perfect album and a number 78 single before disappearing back into obscurity. He still plays today, and his work is in dire need of discovery, as evidenced by the lack of songs available on youtube and his albums being out of print. Remember friends, if Todd Haynes likes it, it's gotta be good!

Roger Daltrey covered it quite well, but didn't sing in Annie's voice!
