THE CITY BLUES- BLUES FOR LAWRENCE STREET
ULTRA RARE private garage blues LP from the Los Angeles area reminds me of early Quicksilver Messenger Service, specifically the 1966 pre-Cipollina lineup as heard on those Groucho releases. "Smokestack Lightning", "Goin' To New York", "You Gotta Help Me", etc. Trebly guitars, wailing harmonica, etc. Band is pretty crude but the pressing is great and the cover=wow! This is one of the rarest 1960s California private LPs, I'd put it in league with Stack, Beat Of The Earth, Damon, etc. Rated at a high "5 disc rating" in Hans Pokora's "4001 Record Collector Dreams" book! Cover is a strong EX with a tiny "50c" written on the back cover. The disc is also a strong EX to EX+ and plays beautifully! A nice keeper copy and good luck finding this again any time soon...
