Mississippi –Mr Union Railway Man

Mississippi –Mr Union Railway Man/ Main Street –HMV DNZ 10716 (1970 NZ issue)

How on earth could this single, originally released in the UK on the tiny independent Fox label, get licensed and released down under in New Zealand on HMV? Very strange indeed…
Mr Union Railway Man is an out and out scorcher. Tight as can be; the track burst out at the seams and maximizes the minimum in glorious fashion. The cutting lead break is positively blistering and the echo on the vocals add a Freakbeat/Psych element into the mix. The B side Main Street also has some pretty nifty guitar and is another winner in its own right. This track was comped a while ago, but I have no information on who was in the band etc…

Hello isn't that Edmund Blackadder in the comment above?

I tried the edit, and both tunes are belters - have you checked out the Jagged Time Lapse comp's for some great vintage rock 'n' racket - Vol 1 is a scorcher
