THE THIRD BOOTH - I NEED LOVE

More proof that sometimes the best records come from isolated places; The Third Booth came from Canton, IL (southwest of Peoria), cut this one single and with the chutzpah of youth got it into the hands of an influential Chicago DJ; the record became a hit in the windy city, whereas it was picked up for wider distribution by Independence records.

Allegedly the group practiced the song for 40 hours for a session in which they scraped together $250 to pay for (the band wanted to make sure they got it in one take). They sound VERY together on the track (with its tricky bridge section); one of the records that took American beat music and fuzz tone into the annals of all around greatness.

from 1967...

Love that record! I got a copy in a large box of records years ago. It still gets turntable time pretty regularly.

Derek, personally, I think this tune is the definitive garage rock song. It has it all. And how cool can it get in a garage rock tune, than to base all the lyrics from just one word: "Girl".
