The Belles - "Come Back"

Miami, Florida group The Belles most famously covered and transformed Them's "Gloria" into "Melvin" back in 1966, but the song I can't shake is the band's original, "Come Back." Dug up by the Girls In The Garage compilation series, the song's giant gritty bass line, loose swinging rhythm, and snappy ear-catching vocal melodies are 2 minutes and 12 seconds of grimy jangling rock 'n' roll perfection. Unfortunately, there's barely a footprint of the band's existence on the internet, so whether or not they ever delivered a full album of equally bad ass material, we might never know. For now, let's enjoy what we've got.
