Inside The Groove

Famous garage band's second album on Mercury.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Contains the powerful up-tempo garage popper "Pipe Dream", which is funky funky cheap "garage" psyche (released as a B-side of the single Mercury 72660).

Other "bad thang" including "There's A Chance Make It" (an A-side of Mercury 72660), "Life Is Just A Cher O'Bowlies" are also lovable. Listen to a heavy "empty brain" great garage version of "Gloria". The band is my favourite. Cool.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
