THE BEACON STREET UNION – \”Now I Taste The Tears\” (MGM SE-4568) September 1968

The second Beacon Street Union album included some strong numbers and a bizarre version of \”Blue Suede Shoes\” which was lifted as a single. In my opinion the Doors inspired blues rocker \”Now I Taste The Tears\” would have been a much better single to sell the LP. I\’m not sure if the hippies would have been wanting to go back to a Carl Perkins number.

\”Now I Taste The Tears\” features a heavy bass sound and some thrilling lead guitar, not a touch of psychedelia here, just a fabulous late sixties uptempo blues cut. The song was also recorded by Chris Morgan, The Smiths and Buzz Clifford.
