This is Lady Skate and the Skateboard Kids, from the Barcaly Records 1977 release. The A side is Skateboard Baby, and the B-Side is The Skateboard Lesson. This skateploixtation record is a French production, but I swear I’ve heard of that label in conjunction with some other skateboard music titles.
– Oh yeah, Thanks to Matthijs for tipping me off to the auction.
The lyrics in the first one are kind of funny. The big refrain, I’m pretty sure translates to “I skateboard,” although it might literally be “I’m making skateboard.” Don’t quote me on that, it all fades after high school. The B-Side is where they gave up. It’s basically an instrumental with a toast over the beginning. For your listening enjoyment.
