RICHARD AND THE YOUNG LIONS - YOU CAN MAKE IT


RICHARD AND THE YOUNG LIONS - 'You Can Make It'/'To Have And To Hold' (Philips 40438) February 1967

The third and final Richard and the Young Lions single was the garage classic 'You Can Make It' which again kept to their usual sound of pounding drums and fuzz action. Sadly though the record stayed well clear of any decent chart position and the group were dropped by Philips, never to be heard of again.

I first heard 'You Can Make It' on the all time classic 80s garage compilation 'What A Way To Die' and when I started collecting original 60s garage and psych singles this killer slab of wax was high on my wants list.

line-up:
Richard Tepp
Fred Randall
Lou Vlahakes
The Twig
Bob Freedman
