Today is the day to reveal the results to the Battle of the Bands for California Dreamin’. The Seekers didn’t fare too well on this one. I think they sounded close to the original, if that’s even remotely possible because, after all, it’s the Mamas and the Papas. But their version was so much like the original versus Bobby Womack’s version which was incredibly different.
Most of the voters liked his take on the song, including me. I love what he did with California Dreamin’, making it so soulful. So my vote went to Womack too.
Final tally: Bobby Womack – 15 votes
The Seekers – 4 votes
Thanks for participating in my battle. I appreciate all the comments. See you on November 1st for the next battle.
