THE SELECTIVE SERVICE - GREEN ONIONS

THE SELECTIVE SERVICE - "Green Onions" / "Shake" (Trans Canada TC-32110 March 1967

Here's an obscure record  from a soul beat group from Ohio, it's an updated 1967 take of the mod instro "Green Onions" - No hammond organ on this, instead some subtle fuzz guitar and brass which gives it quite a gritty sound. I can visualise something like this as background music to a punch up on 60s TV show "Batman" "POW" "CRUNCH" "ARRGH!"

The other side is a decent version of "Shake." So, two cover versions of hit records. Buckeyebeat wrote all about The Selective Service and included a photo of them. Head over to that website for more information but in the meantime have a listen to "Green Onions" via my YouTube Channel.
