Lincoln St. Exit – Drive It (1970)


Μιας και το ανέφερε ο φίλος d.j. fanis και υπάρχει ας ολοκληρώσω την ενότητα των Xit. Πειρατής ο δίσκος βέβαια και χιλιοανεβασμένος στο νετ, από το δισκάδικο της Αθηνας στην τιμή των 4.650 δραχμών παρακαλώ. Είναι που δεν μας πιάνανε το κώλο ε? Αλλά τι να κάναμε?
Όπως αναγράφει και το οπισθόφυλλο που κρατώ it’s heavy, alive and ready. Δηλαδή Got You Babe, feel so good, got you babe, all night…

A Sioux Indian band based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Bummer is a fine upbeat rocker, whilst Sunny Sunday Dream is much more trippy with lots of keyboards. Changing their name to Xit the band made several albums in support of the cause of the American Indian during the 1970's. The Lincoln St. Exit album is essentially blues-based and does not include their non-Mainstream 45s. It is now a very sought-after collectors' item, and has been counterfeited. Much of their earlier material was officially reissued on the Xit LP Entrance (Canyon 7114) 1974, which has also become rare.

Compilation coverage has so far included: The Bummer and Sunny Sunday Dream on New Mexico Punk From The Sixties (LP) and Sixties Archive Vol. 4 (CD); The Bummer, Sunny Sunday Dream and Whatever Happened To Baby Jesus, Part 1 & 2 on Filling The Gap; Sunny Sunday Dream and Whatever Happened To Baby Jesus on Gathering Of The Tribe (CD); Sunny Sunday Dream on Garage Zone, Vol. 1 (LP) and Garage Zone Box Set (4-LP); The Bummer on Everywhere Chainsaw Sound (LP), The Midwest Vs. The Rest (LP); Who's Been Driving... on Diana's Rootin' Tootin' Party; Paper Place and Who's Been Driving My Little Yellow Taxi Cab on Bands On Lance (LP) and I Wanna Come Back From The World Of LSD (CD); and Who's Been Driving My Little Yellow Taxi Cab on Diana's Rootin' Tootin' Wild Teenage Rock 'N' Roll Party!
