THE HUMAN BEINGZ - 'Hey Joe'/''Spider Man' (Elysian Records 820F-3376) 1966
The Human Beingz hailed from Youngstown, Ohio and hit the big time with a version of 'Nobody But Me'. Now that song quite rightly gets it's acclaim and came to my attention via Lenny Kaye's Nuggets LP in the early 80s.
But what did the group have to offer before their hit record? Well, they released a couple of well received 45s on local labels and in 1966 came up with 'Spider Man', a terrific folk jangler written by T.J. Voithofer of The Counts. Absolute genius.
The other side has The Human Beingz performing the folk rock standard 'Hey Joe'.
