Last copies. Two forgotten Chicago garage rock classics from the dawn of "long-hair" and the wah-wah pedal in 1967. Two great PRETTY THINGS covers. Includes photo / bio insert and hand stamped sleeve. Limited edition of 300 records. 45 r.p.m.
Alonas Dream Records is pleased to present a reissue of the only single from fabled Chicago garage rock band: The Griffith Harter Union. These sides, originally recorded at Chess Studios, represent the only audible remains of the band which played frequently in Chicagos burgeoning "Old Town" music scene. The record was originally released in an edition of a few hundred on the Chicago label "Jim-Ko" in 1967.
The searing lead guitar on the A-side Progress is a tough Chicago garage take on a song made popular by The Pretty Things and features the very early use of a wah-wah pedal, which was only invented in late 1966. The band played all the major clubs throughout Chicago and its suburbs as well as a few gigs on the road, including a two week booking at the Aragon Ballroom backing up Baby Huey and the Babysitters. They were also featured at the first Chicago "Human Be-In" held on Mothers Day 1967 in Lincoln Park. The band existed from 1967 until 1969.
