Bonny St Claire I surrender
Being plucked from a concert audience to sing on stage and then being offered a recording contract of your own is the stuff of teen dreams. But for Dutch doll Bonny St Claire that’s precisely what happened. At a Peter and the Rockets concert, Peter Koelewijn asked for a volunteer from the audience to accompany him. He was so impressed by Cornelia Swart that he engineered a solo contract for the young wannabe. Complete with a new name, Bonny St Claire, she issued the sexually charged Tame me tiger as her debut single, in 1967. Our choice, though, is the B-side of her follow up. With its stomping beat, I surrender has become a firm favourite on the Mod scene.
