THE AVENGERS SING

In honor of the re-release of The Avengers: Emma Peel Megaset this Tuesday, Spy Vibe is hosting a listening party today with rare recordings by original Avengers, Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman. With a new TV hit on their hands, the stars went into the studio and cut two tracks, Kinky Boots and Let's Keep it Friendly (Herbert Kretzmer/David Lee). The record was released by Decca in 1964, but failed to chart until a re-release years later in 1990. The 1990 edition included two additional songs performed by Honor Blackman, I Wish I Never Loved You and Men Will Deceive You (Gainsbourg). Listen to three of the tracks below. 

Now let's get into Kinky BootsJust follow the bouncing, er... you get the idea!

  1. Hi,

    You have a few of the lyrics wrong:

    It's "Frumpy little beat girls" not "beach girls" and it's "Mayfair debutantes" not "Major debutantes". Also, the background singers are singing "boots boots" not "boop boop."

  2. Revised- Thanks for catching the typos.
