Larry & the Blue Notes

Biography

Among the many, many energetic but undistinguished American garage area bands from the mid-’60s, Larry & the Blue Records cut several obscure singles whose distribution was limited by their Forth Well worth, TX, foundation. Although a lot of their repertoire contains addresses and ballads, their very best excitement was for English R&B/rock, plus they published some derivative originals within the Yardbirds/Rocks vein. Dealing with Main Expenses Smith (who experienced a submit huge early-’60s strikes by Bruce Route and Paul & Paula), they produced several singles which were ultimately wanted by completist garage area collectors several decades later on. Their “Nights the Sadist” and “The Phantom” certainly are a handful of the better-known garage area novelties. In addition to that, their very best claim to popularity was impersonating the Sir Douglas Quintet for a couple shows within the mid-’60s, an activity which appears about befitting the band’s limited significance and capabilities.
