Mark Lindsay,former lead
singer/songwriter/producer and co founder of the seminal 60's Garage Rock band Paul Revere & the Raiders has released "Like Nothing That You've Seen," the first single from his upcoming.
The song was co-written and produced by Gar Francis, songwriter/guitarist of New Jersey Garage Rock veterans, the Doughboys. "Like Nothing That You've Seen" features backing vocals by Myke Scavone (Doughboys), Kurt Reil (Gripweeds), and special guest, Little Steven Van Zandt. The single follows in the butt-kickin' footsteps of Lindsay's classic 60's tracks with the Raiders like "Kicks," "Stepping Out," "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" and "Just like Me."
"I first met Mark Lindsay when I was recording the new Doughboys album Shakin' Our Souls," explains co-writer/producer Gar Francis. "I had asked Kurt, the owner of House of Vibes, if he knew of anyone who could add saxophone to a track I was working on called 'It's A Crying Shame.' Kurt mentioned that he was doing some sessions with Mark Lindsay, the singer from Paul Revere and the Raiders, who was also a great sax player.
"Mark came down and added the sax parts and also sang background vocals for the track. As he was leaving the session, I had casually mentioned that if he ever wanted to collaborate on some songs to give me a call. Well after he returned home to Florida, he gave me a call and we started
working on songs via e-mail for the next three months, producing a boat-load of tunes for a new Mark Lindsay album.
"'Like Nothing That You've Seen, is one of the first songs we came up with, and we decided to go into the studio to cut and release it as a single before the album. I wanted Mark to return to his Garage roots and I think we did a good job of capturing that spirit. I hope you dig it as much as we do. "
