1965: I’m not sayin’ that I love you

Am I the only person who thinks that it’s funny that Nico’s first recording was a Gordon Lightfoot cover? In 1965 the German tries to sound like Marianne Faithfull in New York covering the Canadian folk singer, with future British legend, Jimmy Page playing guitar. The best part? Despite such a winning combination, it went by unnoticed. This is about as gentle as Nico’s singing ever seems to get. I’m not a Gordon Lightfoot fan, but he does rock the guitar impressively. Anyway, this is old news, but one of those fun little things where all these connections meet together.
