DENNY PROVISOR - 'It Really Tears Me Up'/'She's Not Mine Anymore' (Valiant Records V-728) October 1965
Here's a real sort after 45 from Denny Provisor, and quite rightly so in my opinion. 'It Really Tears Me Up' is a forceful folk-rocker with jangle and is pure Sunset Strip style ear candy. The vocal attack is akin to the gruff tones of Barry McGuire....an absolute killer and pure 'Flower Bomb Songs.'
The flip 'She's Not Mine Anymore' is a soul tinged pop ballad that holds my interest.
Denny Provisor released a few earlier singles which I've not heard. Both do not feature in Teenbeat Mayhem which leads me to believe that they lack the garage or teenbeat sound.
He ended up in a later line-up of The Hook and played for many years with The Grass Roots.
