Get your yo-yo’s out

“Yo-yo, Ye-ye” b/w “Bum-Ban-Ban-Ban”   Kinita on Philips Records (Spain)  (1969)  “No one can be a ye-yé without playing with a yo-yo. The yo-yo of the ye-yés, the ye-yés of the yo-yos,”   While real fame eluded her, this song, Kinita’s final single, was a hit.  Then like the yo-yo itself, she went out of fashion and slipped quietly back into obscurity.  Attempts to find the singer have failed and she remains a mystery.  The B-side is “Bum ban Ban ban,” a version of British singer Lulu’s, Boom Bang-a-bang,”  Kinita also achieved some notoriety for her numerous and complicated hairdos, earning herself the nickname ‘the princess of lacquer’.   She has a Tina Turner thing going on here I think.
