27 Nov The Flamin’ Groovies – Teenage Head – Limited Edition 180 Gram LP
Elemental Music, together with Sony Music entertainment, proudly presents a 180 gram LP reissue of the most acclaimed album by the American rock band Flamin’ Groovies: Teenage Head. This newly remastered masterpiece (long unavailable on vinyl format) is the third studio album by the San Francisco band and was released in March 1971 by Kama Sutra Records (a Budda Records subsidiary).
Teenage Head is their last album with singer Roy Loney who left the band over differences in opinion with co-founder Cyril Jordan about the band’s future musical direction. Teenage Head is an angst-ridden, highly influential cult classic, with unforgettable tunes like the title track and “High Flyin’ Baby”.
Released the same year as The Rolling Stones’ classic album Sticky Fingers, Mick Jagger reportedly noticed the similarities between the albums and thought the Flamin’ Groovies did the better take on the theme of classic blues and rock ‘n roll revisited in a modern context.
