The Sonics: Boom (LP)

(Big Beat) 12 tracks

We are following the re-release of "Here Are The Sonics!" with a 180 gram black vinyl replica of "Boom", the band's second album. Originally released on Etiquette Records in wonderful mono in 1966, "Boom" still does much more than just fulfill the promise of their debut. Few records have ever packed so much musical punch from start to finish, offering a representation of what the Sonics must have sounded like at the height of their power.

Recorded in the most glorious no-fi you could wish for, and with anthemic originals like "Cinderella" and "He's Waitin" vying for attention with perhaps the most violent version of "Louie Louie" ever, "Boom" is an album that has always justified the esteem it is held in by collectors around the world. All the modern bumph like barcodes and whatnot on a disposable sticker to keep your copy of "Boom" as original as possible.

The Sonics

This Broken Heart

Since The Kodoks, whose former tenor William Franklin and baritone Larry Davis subsequently became two-fifths of The Sonics, hailed from Newark, New Jersey (their Oh Gee, Oh Gosh came out on Bobby Robinson's Fury label in 1958 and resides on our previous disc), it seems a relatively safe bet that The Sonics hailed from that same vicinity as well. 

A group by the same name had a 1958 single on the New York-based X-Tra imprint coupling Once In A Lifetime and It Ain't True; the assumption is that it was the same quintet. Franklin wrote the delectable ballad This Broken Heart, but it was tenor Donald Sheffield who ably fronted The Sonics on the engaging platter. Sheffield also led the flip side, You Made Me Cry, another Franklin composition. The number made enough East Coast noise on Art Gottfried's Harvard Records, another tiny New York imprint, that Chicago's Checker label picked it up in April of '59 for national consumption (Sheffield's featured billing went by the boards).

It was a one-time deal for the group, which bounced from one highly obscure label - Nocturne, Amco, Armonia - to the next during the early '60s without ever attracting the interest that This Broken Heart did.
