Electric Prunes - Stockholm 67 (Live)


Stockholm 67 is some kind of a miracle. This is a previously unreleased performance from a nearly unknown US band 37 years ago, back when live recordings barely existed. Well, the sound is astonishing. It could have been recorded in the nineties, you wouldn't tell the difference. And when it comes to music, it's even more amazing. It's raw rock'n'roll, with a light garage touch, strong vocal performance and incredible guitar sound. The band fully captures the essence of British sound and adds to it a bit of American roughness. The Electric Prunes even outperform the Yardbirds on the cover version of Smokestack Lightning. Second only to The Who's Live At Leeds for what regards live albums. (Year of Release: 1967)

Track List:
1. You Never Had It Better
2. I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
3. Try Me On For Size
4. I Happen To Love You
5. I Got My Mojo Workin'
6. Long Day's Flight (Til' Tomorrow)
7. Smokestack Lightning
8. Get Me To The World On Time

I'd heard of this post and been on lookout for it for some time to put with my other prunes album to complete the collection. Shame they couldn't hold it together back then but we gotta move on

@Don Vitorio: They are amazing live, and this album blows away any of their studio releases by a longshot in my opinion. I'm surprised that the download link for this is still working though. If you run into any problems let me know. I'll take care of them as quickly as I can.
