Love on the rocks

Leilani” was the first (and only) 45 by Le Hoodoo Gurus. Right after this record came out, two of the guitarists quit, leaving the remaining guitarist and drummer (they never had a bass player) to form a new band. They got a new guitarist and bass player, dropped the ‘Le’ and re-recorded “Leilani” for their first LP. I prefer the original bass-less 45, it has better Umgawahs.

The Hoodoo Gurus didn’t record a new version of “Leilani, Part 2”. The b-side is a terrific multi-part song about the young man’s life after Leilani went to the volcano.
