Coloured Balls –Flash

Coloured Balls –Flash/ Dave The Rave –EMI 10344 (1973 Aus)

Led by the late great Lobby Loyde, Flash finds the band in their absolute Sharpie-Ball-Power prime. It’s such an exuberant performance and although the band can really play, Flash finds them containing any musical indulgences and any over-muso leanings that would at times appear on their second LP. It’s just an amazing straight-ahead down the line full-on power trip. The B side is slightly more Bluesy and somehow reminds me of Stackwaddy. A truly great single
