The Sonics: The Savage Young Sonics

Long before they delivered the full blown crunch of 'The Witch and Psycho', the Sonics were cutting their teeth in Tacoma teen clubs! These crude 1961-64 were taped live at dances and at home, showing the influence of their primo idols the Wailers and includes the ultra primitive 'A-Rab', the group's very first recording - raw!! These tapes were recently found in a Tacoma attic. This is their first appearance ever! Liner notes by Sonics founder/guitarist Larry Parypa!

Artist description "Sonics, The"

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.
