RY COOPER - '1983'/'The Life Game' (Musicor MU-1148) February 1966
This was the first and only 45 by Ry Cooper a.k.a. Rusty Evans who went on to release albums (with associates) as The Deep and The Freak Scene. He also had connections with The Nervous Breakdowns and The Third Bardo as a producer....he was very much a psychedelic pioneer although this rare single on Musicor Records is raw folk-rock.
The gruff and pissed off vocals are perfect for this type of protest music. It appears that '1983' was the top side as this was the song given a Chart spotlight in Billboard during February 1966.
