H.P. LOVECRAFT - "Anyway That You Want Me" / "It's All Over For You" (Philips 40465) June 1967

This record was the debut disc by H.P. Lovecraft, the top side being a decent version of "Anyway That You Want Me" which had recently been a hit for The Troggs in Britain. According to the liners of the Rev-Ola CD retrospective, this song was helped along with assistance from local Chicago group The Rovin' Kind.

The George Edwards penned "It's All Over For You" on the flip is a dead ringer for Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." Perhaps the reason for hiding this cut on the B-Side. This was actually a solo recording from 1966 and explains why it sounds like a remnant of the earlier folk-rock era. My guess is that "It's All Over For You" was recorded during the same sessions for his Dunwich single.

I reviewed his disc "Norwegian Wood" / "Never Mind, I'm Freezing" way back in 2011. Follow the link
