CHIPS & CO - LET THE WIND BLOW


CHIPS & CO - 'Marbletown'/'Let The Wind Blow' (M5 192) 1965

Not a great deal is known about Chips & Co so I'm hoping this post will prompt some information. The group were thought to come from upstate New York (FA&F) but it has also been suggested that they were from Connecticut. I found a small advert in a 1966 print of Billboard announcing the release of their second 45 on ABC 'You're You' confirming the group originated from Jersey.

'Marbletown' is a driving rocker with a strong beat but I prefer the flip 'Let The Wind Blow'...listen out for a throbbing rhythm with trashy surf guitar and an uptempo Bo Diddley beat. Cool indeed.

  1. Hi Colin,

    I read somewhere that they were from Trenton, New Jersey. But I forgot where I read it.

    Great tunes!
