This week, we showcase a rare LOUIE version my friend Clay Stabler discovered. it’s an Italian vinyl release from 1974. Roy Young With The Tritons was the band, and the discogs.com website provided some basic information about this release:
Roy Young With The Tritons – Rock On The Road
Label: Fonit Cetra International – ils 9038
Format: Vinyl, LP
Style: Acid Rock
The discogs.com page not only shared photos of the album, but also photos of the record label.
As fate would have it, someone provided a clip of this track on YouTube so we could hear what it sounds like.
It’s pretty exciting to find a 38 year old recording of the song I’ve never heard of, especially when the arrangement is very different from other recordings of the song.
Digging around the internet for information about this band, I found a reference to this recording on secondhandsongs.com, a website with an online database of various cover songs… which led to even more bookmarking….
… and the adventure continues…
