“When I talk to Loretta, she makes me feel like number one!”
The Nervous Eaters, Loretta (1976)
Classic Boston early punk rock. Rough and satisfying.
Neko Case, Loretta (2004)
A nice (dare I say superior) remake by Miss Case, who has exquisite taste in covers.
(I have always thought the original version sounded like it grew out of a jam based on the Velvet Undergound’s White Light / White Heat. But that is just a guess.)
