Are these Peanuts (doing Poison Ivy) the same as the ones that played the twin fairies in the MOTHRA movies?

Debbie D said...

I believe so, Joe, but I don't know for sure. Anybody? The CDR that these songs appear on was given to me by Dave the Spazz.

i did track down a box set of the peanuts, but that track wasn't on it???

I'm pretty sure it's not The Peanuts, I know their music and their voices very well and it's close but it's not them. Also their music from the late 60's sounded a lot more polished, the quality of this sounds quite rough.

What record did the song come from, the pic at the top of this post is a single and neither of the songs mentioned on it is Poison Ivy. If you have a scan of the record/cd cover I can identify it.
