So: yeah: I am jaded: Mike is my cousin and helped inspire me to go into the music biz: but listen carefully to the violin solo in Walk Away Renee: thats his Dad playing: Harry Lookofsky:

this sound was so very new and inspired generations of musicians to think differently about the integration of classic instruments into rock music

Ever find yourself in a supermarket or perhaps a department store that has soft rock playing in the background and you hear a tune you know so well but the song title & band elude you?

This happened to me the other day as I listened to the soft melody of "Walk Away Renee", a classic '60's composition from the band "The Left Banke". Pianist/composer Michael Brown and groups' inclusion of beautiful chamber string arrangements provide for a most relaxingly two and a half minutes of mellow music. On my old 45 RPM disc, "Walk Away Renee" was the 'A' side with the equally classic "Pretty Ballerina" being the 'B' side.

As my old 45 is worn nearly groove-less, I'm ecstatic to find both find both of these beautiful songs available for download. For all fellow B-B's, the 99 cent price is really much cheaper than we paid for those darn 45's:)

Being a Music Buff since my childhood & now, able to collect those favorite tunes from yesteryear "Walk Away Renee by the Left Banke" is one of my most favorites. While this selection was being played by most Rock-N-Roll "AM" Stations, I was going with a Young Lady named "Renae", She was Bright, Funny, So Affectionate, She was also very particular, and when I told her that I was going into the Military...Well "it was all Over". This Tune deals with something "similar", it's also a Classic among Classics "In my own opinion of course", Anyway I Like It, Enough Said.

I collect hits of the 60s. Many of them, like Walk Away Renee I am old enough to recall but chose not to buy back in the day. This was a monster hit in 1966. 13 weeks on the chart reaching #5. Rolling Stone placed the song at number 220 in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Nuff said.

This is a good song, have it on a record. Really wish Amazon would give the opportunity to purchase full CD-quality downloads rather than compressed MP3's. It's not so much that full CD-quality sounds better, but it gives more flexibility if I want to use other formats than MP3.

This is such a great classic song. Easy, easy ordering here and a quick download. Love it!! Love the Amazon Cloud Player. Just wish it had a "shuffle" button. Thank you for keeping the classic songs alive!

I tried to buy this song by the Left Banke practically since the itunes store opened up. Could't get it and its still not here but I found it here. This is the original version before the 4 Tops recorded it and its better.
