THE LOST ONES - 'Trouble In The Streets'/'Little Annie' (Valiant Records V-721) August 1965
I'm a sucker for 60s style instros so it comes as no surprise that I've got this 45 by The Lost Ones tucked away in one of my record boxes. I haven't been able to establish if they were a group working the Sunset Strip or if The Lost Ones are merely a studio creation working away on possible incidental music for exploitation films.
'Trouble In The Streets' is an organ charged instro with reverb and snappy tambourine throughout and ends with wailing police sirens....super cool this one and is strangely the same backing used for Cory Wells and the Enemy's 'Sinner Man'.
The flip is almost as good especially the kickin' lead guitar break. Another curio emerges as the instro was used in 'Louisiana' by The Motleys, another Valiant Records label recording group.
