Anyone Remember White Witch?

Recommended Posts

We would play this for fun later in the evening when everyone was sufficiently juiced up. It soon became a bar sing along!!

Saw 'em open for Argent in '73 in Dothan, AL at the Houston County Farm Center (dirt floor). Singer introduced this song and lit up something onstage; claimed it was a joint. "And I'm Leaving" was an okay single for those times.

Never heard of ‘em or their, “novelty single.” 

The 70’s could suck in some very peculiar ways.

Saw them play at the American Room for Halloween in 1978 or 1979 (I can't remember!).  Indoor fireworks and great production for an A-list Florida venue.

Elliot Rubinson played bass with them then.  He owned Thoroughbred Music in Tampa and, later Dean Guitars and Armadillo Cases.  Got to live out his dream and tour with UFO/Michael Schenker.  Cancer sucks.  A friend I miss...

Especially when you get a band from Florida using "motorcar" in their lyrics.  Some clever lads, those wordsmithy White Witch boys were.

 

And I'm leaving but I want you to know
I'd like to stay but there's a cross I must tow
Hop in my motorcar and on I must go
Oh but I love you
Oh but I love you so
Just like a black I was sitting in the back
And wherever I was I couldn't see what I was going through
So I hopped on my cloud I was very very proud
Couldn't find the ground while you pushed me on and on
I'm overdue
I would converse but though my hours are few
Looks like the worst but there's so much I can do
And so, my darling, here's champagne to you
