FEAR ITSELF - THE LETTER



FEAR ITSELF - "The Letter" / "Born Under A Bad Sign" (Dot Records 45-17278) July 1969

I bought this record several years ago and remember the seller billed it as 'psychedelic blues rock' but there is no way I'd describe the music as such. To me, it's simply late 60s hippie rock. There is nothing psychedelic about Fear Itself. They were hippies.

"The Letter" is the much covered song written by Wayne Carson. Perhaps the best known version is by The Box Tops. This version by Fear Itself doesn't really do much for me but I've decided to post it here during my Dot Records expose. Both songs on this 45 were part of their album, something I've never heard (apart from these two songs) but they're just not my scene to be honest.
