As the "missing link," it's essential

"SLOW DEATH serves as the missing link between the Groovies blues-influenced Kama Sutra years and the British Invasion Sire years. The Groovies were inbetween labels, Roy Loney had just left the band (replaced by Chris Wilson), Danny Mihm was about to take a brief vacation from the music biz, and Cyril Jordan began setting the Groovies in a new direction musically.

This really may be the best the Groovies ever sounded: very tight Stones-on-amphetamines rock and roll. Jordan and James Ferrell simply rock out on guitar and Mihm and George Alexander show why they're the best rhythm combination the Groovies ever had.

The first four tracks ("Sweet Little Rock & Roller," "Slow Death," "Let It Rock" and "Dog Meat") don't stop for any limiting adjectives. Adding the demo version of "Shake Some Action" is icing on the cake.

Yeah, the sound quality ain't the best, but be thankful these rehearsal tapes even exist. This was a powerful band which never quite reached this level of excitement again."

"the Norton issue of these recordings (which may be found in bad-sounding bootleg form elsewhere) is a must-have for anybody who likes raw rock n' roll. I love the Flamin Groovies anyway, but this is my single favorite Flamin Groovies package. I want everyone to hear it."
Like Slammin' Jet Fuel....

"Killer, primal rock and roll from the Groovies' 1971-73 period. Made up mostly of demos made after Cyril Jordan remade the band into one of the fiercest and tightest outfits never to break big in the U.S. Mostly recorded live in the studio, the tracks are lo-fi and raw for the most part, but don't lose a thing for it. This is super-tight, balls-to-the-wall rock and roll and should be heard by anyone who knows the real thing."
