Chesterfield Kings With Mark Lindsay

The Chesterfield Kings have never been a mainstream act, but they have kept the idea of a garage band burning for many years. They have the look, they have the chops, and their music is right out of some garage in 1965.

And then you have one of the original garage band guys, the lead singer of the one of the all-time garage bands that made it big, Mark Lindsay, the long-time lead singer of Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Put them together, and you get ...

This must have seemed like a good idea on paper, but it doesn't always work on record. The A side sounds Byrds-like, while the B side, a cover of a Raiders classic that was recorded at Cavestomp '98 in New York, is dizzying good.

This is a one-shot pairing, and while it probably isn't the greatest thing you've ever heard, you have to give the Chesterfield Kings, Lindsay, and whoever thought this one up an "A" for effort.
