Illinois Speed Press ‎– Get In The Wind (Vocal / Instrumental)


I don't know why this band doesn't get more love...?!? Heavy fuzz guitars and good strong vox make this a keeper for me. From 1968. Love the out of key guitar at the end of the solo. Almost as heavy as what Blue Cheer or Iron Butterfly were doing at the time yet no one cares about this band all that much. I guess the rest of the stuff isn't as heavy but it's still solid. Anyway here's the 45 w/ the Instrumental version for this that need that....

"A James William Guercio" production? The man who produced the early Chicago albums (and talked the band into the Chicago Transit Authority name originally). Also producer of the (second) Blood, Sweat and Tears album? 'Nuff said.
