Pride and Joy

Pride and Pleasure were actually the same group while the Del-Vetts, the Chicago music group famed for just one of the best mid-’60s garage rock and roll singles, “Last Period Around.” After liberating three singles as the Del-Vetts, they transformed their name to Satisfaction and Pleasure for the 1967 solitary “IF YOU ARE Ready,” that actually wasn’t much below “Last Period Around” for good garage rock and roll raunch matching difficult guitars with solid pop hooks. Yet another single followed later on that yr, an uncharacteristic pop/rocker penned by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, “WE HAVE quite a distance to visit” (supported by a melody that were previously released with the Del-Vetts, “That is the Way IT REALLY IS”). Every one of the songs in the Pride and Pleasure singles are on the 10″ LP The Del-Vetts, released by Sundazed in 2008, which also contains every one of the songs they released as the Del-Vetts.
