THE COUNTDOWNS - SHE WORKS ALL NIGHT


THE COUNTDOWNS - 'She Works All Night'/'Skies Will Be Happy To See You' (WG Records WG-1) June 1967

Simple and effective uptempo teenbeat without any of the studio embellishments like fuzz, wah-wah or sound FX you'd expect from something released in mid 1967. I doubt if anyone but the group themselves laid down the instrumentation, in other words no professional studio musicians.
The drummer at times is all over the place but he manages to keep everything together, although he was probably exhausted by the end of the take.

Teenbeat Mayhem! lists The Countdowns with a South Hadley Falls, MA location. As far as I know only 'Skies Will Be Happy To See You' has been compiled before, on one of those ancient Gone albums from the mid 80s.
