You want obscure? Here we go! The Dogs issued just one 45 on the Philadelphia-based Treasure label in 1967, and that's about all we know!! No photographs or confirmed band members have come to light, so all we have is the music, written by label owner John Bowie, but WHAT a side! With its insistent guitar refrain and squawking sax, the track was first brought to wider attention way back in 1983 when it was comped on 'The Return Of The Young Pennsylvanians,' alongside other killers from Flowerz, The Shaynes and Loose Enz. As you could probably guess, the original 45 is now VERY rare... good condition copies have fetched $3,500 on the collectors market!! Thankfully, Hyperloop have once again come to the rescue by reissuing that vital 45, potentially introducing the band to a whole new audience! The Thorns we know a little more about. Again based in Philadelphia, they started out as an instrumental combo, The Delairs, in 1963. That all changed in 1964 with the onslaught of the British Invasion, and the band were quick to update their sound and image, marking it with a change of name to The Thorns. Around late '65/early '66 they entered Sound Plus Studios to cut 'I Want You' and 'This Is The End,' with 5 acetates being produced, one for each band member.
The Thorns eventually fell apart, but members Steve Sykes and David Ciccitelli hooked up with brothers Nick and Tony Jameson to form The Finestuff, who re-recorded 'I Want You' alongside Nick's 'Big Brother,' both of which were released on the Ra-Sel label in 1967. Offered here is an alternate version of that original Thorns recording, taken from the original master tape!
Comes with printed inner sleeve, 7" insert + bookmark and jukebox title strip. Limited to 600 copies.
