Primevil –Too Dead To Live

Primevil –Too Dead To Live/Fantasies –LM 7144 (1972 US)

Yes, this is the same Indiana combo who released the coveted Smokin' Bats at Campton’s LP in 1974. This is the group 2 years previous with a rarely documented  self-released single. Although the B side was later re-recorded for Smokin' Bats, Too Dead to Live is exclusive to this release. Too Dead To Live (great title) nearly lives up to expectation. It’s a raucous basic Riff -Heavy Rock-Blues Work-Out with a good line in twiddling leads and mouth organ exhalations. Supposedly the band were not too enamoured with the sound on the single and destroyed most copies
