The Casuals –The Witch/ Good Times

The Casuals –The Witch/ Good Times –Dawn DNS.1069 (1974 UK)

Very late single by The Casuals who I believe by this time bore no relation to the Jesamine line-up. The group was probably Chris Evans and Rob Moore AKA Kansas Hook/ American Jam Band. The Witch is an OK 70s Hard Rocker spoiled by the vocal histrionics –we’re nearly in Judas Priest territory here and a long way from the Casuals’ 60s bouffant hair pop. The B Side is a surprisingly fiery work out of the Easybeats tune. They omit the main riff, add an incongruous keyboard part and muddle up the lyrics, but they certainly make it their own!
