The Shamrocks: Cadillac / A Mountain Of Silver (1965)


 
this is a 45 by a swedish group named the shamrocks – there have been several groups with that name in the 1960s, i know of at least on other from the UK and there must be many more.
so these guys hit off with a cover of vince taylors “brand new cadillac”, which is quite nice. but this song is fantastic, almost no matter who covers it! this version however is squeaky, basic garage rock overlapping with simple 60s beat – a little treat for you guys.
the flipside is rather a filler, but ok. “a mountain of silver” is a cute love song with some harp playing in it, not exciting but still a good listen.
i wasnt sure if i should give this record three or four stars, more three and a half, but i chose three stars and you must check out yourself which rating you think is appropriate :-)
