Mark Lindsay, former lead singer of Paul Revere and the Raiders, has released a new single, Like Nothing That You’ve Seen, which will be part of an upcoming LP.
Like Nothing That You’ve Seen was produced by Gar Francis of the veteran New Jersey garage band the Doughboys and includes backing vocals by Myke Scavone (Doughboys), Kurt Reil (Gripweeds), and special guest, Steven Van Zandt.
Francis explains “I first met Mark Lindsay when I was recording the new Doughboys album Shakin’ Our Souls. “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.”
Like Nothing That You’ve Seen was released by Bongo Boy Records and is available through most digital download sites.
