As a unique and limited run, pressed purely for this year’s Record Store day, Seattle’s purveyors of all things psychedelic have recorded their very own take of the ferociously divine Sonics 1966 album, Boom.
Responsible for some of the finest, heavy doses of mind-bending, hazy, crazy, garage-nostalgia this side of the 60’s, the Night Beats pay homage to their cult heroes with their soul-shakin’ rendition of this fine and very classic record and the result…well, the result is perfection!! I was lucky enough to acquire a download of the limited-press album, recorded on LP only (thank you to the very kind person to share this, you know who you are!!) and urge you to track down your own copy if there are any left out there. If you love the Night Beats and The Sonics, this is pure heavenly bliss…brought to you by the very aptly named Heavenly Recordings!
So, after I’ve now built up the Night Beats super-cool rendition of Boom I can only highlight and talk about its brilliance, for there are no uploads of these tracks anywhere….yet!! (another reason to go grab a copy if you can!).
Instead I am featuring the mighty fine original version of Cinderella which opened The Sonics 1966 second studio album (Boom)….the perfect way to kick off such a buzzing record!
Check it out above.
