GRUMP - HEARTBREAK HOTEL



GRUMP - 'Heartbreak Hotel' (Magic Carpet 45-901) 1969

Here's an interesting remake of the Elvis Presley classic. I'm pondering over a release in 1969 or possibly 1970. If you know for sure please let me know

What the 'King' would have made of this cover is anyone's guess. Perhaps he would have shot the record with one of his revolvers. I very much doubt the biker fuzz interpretation would have seen favour in Gracelands.

I dig it very much indeed. It's a big wall of heavy psych fuzz and wah wah with screaming vocals. It would have fit nicely on one of those 'A Fistful Of Fuzz' comps.
My copy of the 45 has "Heartbreak Hotel" on both sides. I'm led to believe that some releases came with the song "I'll Give You Love" as the flip. Has anyone heard this cut?
