Jerry Williams, "Crazy 'Bout You, Baby" from 1971. Produced by David Briggs. This has EVERYTHING great about 70s rock in three minutes and 18 seconds: thick riffs, thick phasers, multiple buzzy guitar solos, a vocalist who sounds like somebody's giving a firm yank on his testes to enhance the delivery of every line and - cow bells! Dig it!
Damien Lovelock, lead singer of the Celibate Rifles, died a few days ago and I've been rediscovering just why I loved the Rifles so damn much. Snuck into a bunch of their shows when I was underage and was always floored by how good they were. Huge influence on me and every band I was ever in. Never as well known or as big as they should have been. Here's a taste.
