09 THE BASSETTS - 'A Little Love From You'/'So Bad' (Mercury 72624) October 1966

The new additions to my record collection in 2014 continue with this one from The Bassetts, who hailed from Long Island, NY. An online source suggests that they were assembled by Tony Amato, Artie Kornfeld and Steve Duboff. This 45 was their only release.

The top side was a rather novelty type tune called 'A Little Love From You', written by the Kornfeld-Duboff partnership. It doesn't register with me, although by all accounts it was a small hit in their locale.

Far superior is the fuzztoned beat of the Tony Amato original 'So Bad'. Comes complete with a cool '66 guitar break. Both sides are uncompiled.
