January 28, 2018 Records of the Day

In 1967 Van Morrison had his first solo hit with “Brown-Eyed Girl.” Two years earlier the Golliwogs came out with their single “Brown-Eyed Girl.” It’s the same title but different song. The Golliwogs would later be known as Creedence Clearwater Revival. But whose brown-eyed girl would you rather have? A record collector would choose the Golliwogs. Van Morrison’s single on Bang Records is worth no more than $20.00 while the Golliwog’s 45 of “Brown-Eyed Girl” on Scorpio records can get you $250.00 today.
