Now On Gold Colored Vinyl!
Back in 1966, Gram Parsons formed his first recording group, the now legendary International Submarine Band. With the ISB he wanted to realize his vision of fusing rock and roll and country music and offer the new and exciting sound to his generation. This recording features the original ISB lineup, Gram, John, Ian and Mickey. The group was getting noticed and with the guidance of managers Monte Kay and Jack Lewis they signed a record deal with Columbia.
"One Day Week," was Gram's clever and commercial rocker that addressed the typical tribulations of teenage life. It featured a cool sounding electric piano and an in-the-pocket guitar solo by John Nuese. The flipside, "Sum Up Broke," sported an akimbo riff that could very well have been influenced by the Blues Magoos, a group the ISB admired and had been hanging out with.
This is the first ever reissue of ISB's ultra-rare and only release on Columbia. Cut from the walloping original mono masters and in a gorgeous picture sleeve designed with previously unseen photos!
