Blackbird –Dirty Dan

Blackbird –Am I Gonna Lose Her/Dirty Dan-Surprise Records –MS45-101 (1974 US)

Here’s a wonderful obscure burst of Powerpop hiding on the B side of an average piece of rural rock. The year is 1974, but make no mistake about it, this will give you the same thrill as the best of Pezband or The Scruffs; real Powerpop with the power intact featuring bright ringing guitars and invigorating backing vocals on a catchy as fuck number. You expect these guys would have a similar look to Blue Ash, a 70s rock band harking back to a bright past for inspiration, so as long as no picture appears with the guys sporting bushy moustaches, the magic will be maintained.
