Les Variations: Only You Know And I Know / I Was Down (1972)

both a and b-side of this 45 are non-album tracks, so even if you knew les variations before you probably havent heard these yet. only you know and i know is an average early 70s rock song, but the flipside, i was down, makes up its strong and heavy counterpart. laid back and rather slow, this acid rocker comes along like somewhat of a hendrix spoof – definitely worth checking out. the vocals are, honestly, fairly neglectable, but the heavy rhyhtms are catchy enough to compensate them.
