Crow Evil Woman b/w Gonna Leave a Mark 45
Minneapolis blues-rock late 60s. This single has a nice groove and kind of a Deep Purple/Grand Funk sound. Apparently the horns on the chorus were overdubbed by the label against the bands wishes. Either way on "Evil Woman Don't Play your Games With Me", they give away the entire lyrical content in the title. It ain't my baby, baby.
The B-side "gonna leave a mark" had a nice boogie rock kinda funky groove with a flute solo! Damn first a horn section, then flutes. Horns work on this track better than the A-Side. Actually a nice addition.
This copy is on Amaret Records. Picked it up at a thrift shop that just went out of business for 75 cents. A worthwhile investment.
In 2005 they were inducted into the Minnesota Rock/Country Hall of Fame. Can't argue with that
