Bisc1 performs “Yours or Mine” at Southpaw.

Michel Polnareff, “La poupée qui fait non.” Apparently, Jimmy Page is playing guitar on this 1966 recording. (Also see his 40th anniversary version— the man had a vision, a white-goggled one, but my introduction to this song was actually elsewhere, in English by a band called the Birds.)
