THE FIVE AMERICANS - DON'T BLAME ME
After their big national hit with the excellent "Western Union" (a song which takes the Vox Continental organ sound into orbit), the group came back stronger, funkier, and punkier with this incredible slice of Texas swagger. And they brought the organ again (played by John Durrill), and used it in just as groundbreaking of a way, although I have to give special credit to guitarist Norman Ezell who twangs out LOUD thru the entire song, as well as singer Miike Rabon gets very primal with some excellent screams throughout.
Sadly, the group never had another big hit, yet kept together until 1969.
