Tomb of Vinyl Horrors: American Whitewater
The immortal Century label was home to upwards of 80,000 (!) custom-pressed records, largely school band concerts, but including some stunning psychedelic and garage rock gems. Of course, Century pressed hundreds of lounge act LPs, including this live LP from the Concord, NH-based American Whitewater. Along with cocktail-era standards like "Proud Mary" and "Leroy Brown," they utterly decimate the Stones' "Brown Sugar" here.
