THE PURPLE UNDERGROUND - COUNT BACK



THE PURPLE UNDERGROUND - "Count Back" / "Soon" (Boss 010) August 1967

My turntable spin today is this psychedelic punk 45 by The Purple Underground. Wow man, this is intense! Check out "Count Back" and the weird FX, treated vocals, whispered in parts, pounding bass and backwards outro. A bit like Love's "Seven And Seven Is" I reckon they must have been influenced by Love with this.

Everything is kool, even the label name of " Boss" Florida group, record released August 1967 and one to add to your psych boxes, recent sales have been $200+ though!

The flip "Soon" is an intense weeper where the guy has lost his girl to another, awkward beat, way-out organ and more studio trickery towards the end.
