Flamin’ Groovies, “I Can’t Explain” (Skydog 45)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:56 am

In 1977 or 1978, I purchased this 45 from the late great Jim Nash at Denver’s WAX TRAX RECORDS, and ever since it’s been in my all-time Top 10. This single from the French Skydog label featured the Roy Loney-led Groovies on the A-side (heard here), and the Chris Wilson version of the band on the B-side. The A-side, a cover of The Who’s CAN’T EXPLAIN (much better than the original, IMHO), is everything that’s great about the Groovies in one blistering two-minute punk blast….and mastered to sound loud at any volume. Enjoy.
