Grenadiers - Yes I Will / Lat-In-Da

Grenadiers - Yes I Will / Lat-In Da (Minutemen 200.714. 1965)

Here's a cool rather sloppy number, backed by an organ led garage popper. Possibly from the Boston area.

I believe this is a Decca custom pressing. I'm curious as to what hides underneath the sticker, but so far have resisted the urge to peel it!

What a fantastic find! Totally Fuzzy led me here. These are some nifty discs you've shared here. Any chance to re-up the LPs: P.J Orion & The Magnates, The Farm - Innermost Limits Of Pure Fun, Gene Parsons - Kindling, and Best Of IGL - Folk Rock? Thanks for all these great tunes. I've studied quite a bit about psych and garage but you've broken a lot of ground here I've not seen or heard covered before.

Decca custom pressing + a label name like Minutemen = practically certain Boston origin. (The label was named after the Minutemen, the renowned members of the local militia who inflicted the first British defeat in the American Revolutionary War. They included Paul Revere, whom Paul Revere of the Raiders was named after.)

"Lat-In-Da" is a version of "La-Do-Dada", the rockabilly classic by Dale Hawkins which was also recorded by the Blue Things as "La Do Da Da". Strange about the name change, as it's not that Latin-flavoured...
