Night of the Living Weasels

From the just (almost finally) mixed album* by my old garage band chums The Weasels, please enjoy the first single (heh):

The Raspberries Meets Exile on Mainstreet pastiche that IS "A Little Mercy."

For what it's worth, I'm not doing a lot on this track except some eighth-notes on the second half of each verse and some power-chording that's buried in the murk; the solo guitar stuff (including the cool slide) is by our producer, Glenn Leeds. The rest of the demerits go to the song's composer Jai Guru Dave Hawxwell (vocals and rhythm guitar), Allan Weissman (bass) and I Robot (drum programming).

* [I should add that the cover art above is for a forthcoming version of some stuff we did back in the '60s; the new album has possibly the greatest title in music history, but I'm not allowed to announce it yet.]

Very good, I like this, can't wait to hear the whole magilla. You're lucky to have this fine material that was made so long ago. I'm impressed.

Fine song. Looking forward to the rest of the tracks.

I applied some Weasel Repellent and it didn't work. I could still hear the song. I want my money back.

Just kidding! Thanks for sharing.

Isn't that "Down on the Boulevard" by Jackson Browne?
