2015 release. Granadilla Music present a reissue of The Little Boy Blues’ In The Woodland Of Weir, originally released in 1968. The Little Boy Blues emerged from the simmering Chicago scene of the mid-to-late ’60s where the contemporary beat fused with elements of soul, jazz, blues, and funk, tinged with colorful and dreamy harmonies of acid and garage rock. You can literally experience the development of fuzz pedals in rock music spinning a record like In The Woodland Of Weir. The sawing opening chords of “Cathedral” provide an appropriate start. The buzzing heavy guitars raise dirt hand-in-hand with a sluggish beat, before a pastoral organ melody divides the tune into half, letting a seething maelstrom of heaviness overrun you once again. In The Woodland Of Weir is more than just this dirty caveman blues rock. “Seed Of Love” is a slow psychedelic pop tune with some wild and explosive fuzzed-out lead guitar, with wickedly insane flute kicking in from time-to-time and a bone-grinding organ to contrast the thought provoking vocal melody and dreamy atmosphere. “The Great Train Robbery” is a brutal proto punk anthem that hits you in the face – it’s an aggressive, furious rock eruption with a rather monotonous vocal line. And “Mr. Trip Wouldn’t Listen” provides a sweet string section on a carpet of utterly distorted, howling and scrunching rhythm guitars, spiced with vocals that will thrill you down to your bare bones. Hard garage rock for all freaks into US heroes such as The Seeds, The Count Five, The Third Bardo, and The Music Machine or English cult acts like The Troggs, The Who, and The Yardbirds. Another gem from the bottomless lake of great music from the late ’60s – a crown jewel from the inner sanctum of garage rock, acid pop, and power psychedelia.
