Bodega Bay - Ruby Carmichael

The man on this photograph is hard to recognise - even for his fans. It's Henny Vrienten, who became the frontman of Doe Maar, a band that was seriously popular in the first half of the Eighties in the Netherlands.

He started his career in the bands Les Cruches and Sweet William in 1970. After this, he recorded singles and albums, using the names Paul Santos and Ruby Carmichael. 'Bodega Bay' was released in 1976 as the second and last single by Ruby Carmichael. I actually owned the single once before, between 1978 and 1981. Then I either threw it away or swapped it for another single with my sister. It was great to find this record again.

My collection: 7" single no. 4686
Found: All that music, Leiden, March 13, 2010
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Bodega Bay' / 'If I knew'
