THE FANTASTIC DEE-JAYS - 'Love Is Tuff'/'Just A Boy' (Stone Records 44) 1968
This is the second time out for The Fantastic Dee-Jays on Flower Bomb Songs, read about their 'Get Away Girl'/'Fight Fire' here. According to 'Teenbeat Mayhem' 'Love Is Tuff' was released by their former Manager Terry Lee sometime in 1968, although both sides date from 1965.
Two great folk-rock sides are on offer with the mournful jangler 'Love Is Tuff' just edging out the Beatlesesque ballad 'Just A Boy' on the flip. I really dig both songs though and I'm pleased to give the single some exposure despite it's 'bootleg' status.
