Margie Hendrix - Packin' Up/Baby

Last month we wrote about Margie Hendrix and her 1965 release of Now The Hurts On You and the sultry Flip-Side of I Found My Love. You can listen/read about it here.

We just can't get enough of this former Raelette so we are back with the 1965 single on Mercury Records which preceded the above mentioned single. The song is the blistering Packin' Up and it's damn near perfect. Guitar, drums, vocals. And it's written by Margie Hendrix to boot! We're including the fab Flip-Side too, Baby.

We usually hate it when people write on records, but we think whoever wrote on this one nailed it in one succinct word and one very appropriate punctuation mark. No need to say more than that.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!


  1. I prefer "Baby". Good God her voice is insane! It's like you can hear her heart being ripped out of chest while she's singing. That's some serious soul.

    1. Serious soul indeed, Anon. We can't go wrong with either side of this single.

    2. Dig those parts where it's just drums and vocals (and a little guitar) in Packin' Up. Also the way she switches from blistering vocals to delicate whimsical asides on Baby!
