THE BLUE BANANA - "Spicks and Specks" / "My Luv" (Kanxic HFCS-152) September 1968
Time for an obscure teenage group from Wichita, KS. Who were the Blue Banana? Not much has ever been written about them but both sides of this disc are polished efforts so they had a mastery of their instruments. I really dig the drumming especially.
"Spicks and Specks" is a lovely rendition of an early Bee Gees number, a good pop song played really well. Vocals are compact and neat. Maybe this was a hit locally. The other side "My Luv" is less commercial and all about the fuzz and hammond organ. Lead guitarist is really enjoying himself on this.
The record came housed in a picture sleeve and was recorded in stereo.
