Girl Named Sandoz [Animals]


"from our slightly infamous john peel session. we of course showed up expecting to meet john peel, but it's not like that at all. we were 2 hours late due to some technical misunderstanding-- but we were treated so poorly by this idiot who used to be the drummer from mott the supple that it is probably *1 on our all time worst experiences list. this was originally recorded by the animals roughly around the time that jimi hendrix went to england to become... well you catch my drift. vented thru to many years of out and out riffdom. this still sounds powerful to my jaded ears, i mean we meant it back then, but that was long agoe. but that was long a go-go, so we only ended up recording 3 songs that day(siva and smiley too) because it was so uptight, but i'm glad we did tolerate that XXXXXXX mott the nipple that day even though i don't think we would now." -BC (PI liner notes)



when I met a girl called sandoz
and she taught me many many things
good things, very good things
sweet things

I met her on a sunny morning
it was hot but the snow lay on the ground
strange things, very strange things
my mind has wings

Sandoz, Sandoz you taught me love
Sandoz, Sandoz you taught me love
we could all learn something from your mind

she is very old, but many think she's young
one kiss from her and you know your time has come
good times, for all time
