Every once in a while we stumble upon a musical mystery that even our vast team of researchers and fact-checkers (a.k.a. Google, Wiki, and a bunch of Trouser Press guides) can’t solve. Case in point: This crazy-catchy 1973 glam-pop song “Show Me The Way,” by a band called Cardinal Point. It’s from the bootleg compilation Glittering (curated by this guy), and we can not stop playing the damn thing. Take a listen, and if you have any more info on these guys, please send it along to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we don’t get some more info soon, we may have to be hospitalized for coconutitis.
UPDATE: Well, that was fast: A tipster sent us along another Cardinal Point MP3, and also informs us that the group was from Belgium–which could help explain this album cover.
