THE SURFARIS - CHICAGO GREEN


THE SURFARIS - "Chicago Green" / "Show Biz" (Dot 45-16966) October 1966

By the time The Surfaris quit playing surf music and got with the "IN" sound of folk-rock and R&B no one seems to have been listening as they encountered flop after flop. It's a shame that "Chicago Green" appears to have been ignored because it's a raunchy harmonica driven R&B mover with fuzz guitar.

"Chicago Green" was composed by short time bass guitarist Jack Oldham who spent 1966/67 with The Surfaris before disappearing from trace. I've did some research but can find nothing else of note.
The other side "Show Biz" sounds rather corny and dated in comparison to the greatness of "Chicago Green"
