THE PRIDE & JOY - IF YOU'RE READY
If this group sounds similar to the Del-Vetts that were featured a while back ("Last Time Around") it's no coincidence- they are the same group. Allegedly, the Del-Vetts fan club suggested that they change their name to The Pride & Joy and the group obliged (such nice Chicago boys!)
This record also boils over with driving fuzz tone intensity but adds an amazing melodic sense that, in a perfect world, would have been a massive hit. These guys were VERY good- listen to those spot-on group harmonies on the chorus as well as the fantastic musicianship that seems ready made for your very own perfect world mod freakout dance scene complete with flashing lights and beautiful go-go girls dancing in, out, or around cages. Ah, for a perfect world...
