THE ROGUES - 'Train Kept A Rolling'/'You Better Look Now' (Audition Recording 6110) July 1966
Over the past week I've been focussing my attention on Buffalo, NY group The Rogues. They made quite a name for themselves locally with their British Invasion sounds and wild gigs at their own Club called 'The Rogues Gallery'. The English sound was mixed into a potent brew with the addition of jangle guitar.
Their debut single was a rockin' version of 'Train Kept A Rolling', no doubt a live favourite. The Rogues probably heard this rhythm and beat from The Yardbirds who released it on their studio album 'Having A Rave Up'..
More interesting for me is the super cool flip and band original 'You Better Look Now'. I first heard this magical folk 12 string jangler via The Chesterfield Kings back in the early 80s, who I may add did a sterling job with it.
