CORY WELLS AND THE ENEMY'S - 'Sinner Man'/'Say Goodbye To Donna' (Valiant Records V-714) April 1965
I wrote about The Enemys way back in October 2009, go here for the posting that includes label scans of all future releases after this one and a band picture. At that time I did not have their first 45 released on Valiant but credited as Cory Well & The Enemy's but have since added a copy to my collection last year.
'Sinner Man' is quite an intense rocker with crunchy Ventures style guitars, organ twists and clattering tambourine. The vocals are moody and perfect for the backbeat, I'd say killer early 1965 Sunset Strip beatsville. I'm not certain if the group had secured their residency at the Whiskey A Go Go at this point.
