One Hundred and Fifteen Seconds Of Pure Quality, Man.



Here is another absolute belter of a track from that most excellent of years for garage rock, 1966. There were a few bands that went by the name of The Outcasts, the ones we are concerned with here are the group that hailed from San Antonio, Texas. They released 5 singles in their short career. I'm In Pittsburgh (and it's raining) written by rhythm guitarist and vocalist Jim Carsten for me is the pick of the bunch. A few years ago I featured the cover version by the Vibes from the mid 80s which I foolishly stated was better than the original which of course is nonsense. I'm not sure you will hear a better sub two minutes of music today.

Enjoy

With that lead-in, I couldn't wait to hear it. But no mp3 attached.

You're right, I've not heard a better sub 2 minute song all day. Toptastic.

Really like that. It both does and doesn't sound like it comes from 1966. Love the harmonica.
