7� single featuring previously unissued
Ed Sullivan Show live performance!
The Remains are indisputably remembered as Boston�s finest rock group of the sixties. Yet it�s the group�s less celebrated connection with New York City that continues to pay dividends for their ever-spreading legion of fans. Of course, the main source of Remains-music has always been their classic run of recordings cut at New Yorks Columbia Records. But in one of the coolest events in history, the Remains also appeared �live� on millions of US television sets courtesy of the top-rated Ed Sullivan Show; direct from NYC.
With the otherwise unrecorded �Let Me Through,� the Remains managed to cram their entire explosive stage act�from Kinks riffs and fleet-fingered guitar heroics from Barry Tashian to an absolutely show stopping rave-up�into under three minutes! Released for the first time anywhere in an audio format, this Sundazed 7� vinyl single pairs the Sullivan performance with even more muscle courtesy of the Remains� long-worshipped Capitol Records Studios (New York, again) sessions where in a completely live and loud rework manage to improve an already unforgettable Tashian original, �Why Do I Cry.�
