THE OTHERS - CRY


THE OTHERS - 'Cry' (Misty Lane Records 038) 1996

A rather stunning rendition of 'Cry' by The Changing Times was recorded by Rome's The Others in the mid 90s. I've highlighted this excelent combo on 'Flower Bomb Songs' several times over the years and quite rightly so, because they deserve greater recongnition.


'Cry' can be found on a collectable 10" mini-LP on Misty Lane that showcases The Others mastery of mid 60s folk-garage. Don't let their dodgy image on the cover put you off (they've gone overboard with the dark shades) as the beautiful 12 string jangle and wholly authentic '66 sounds will leave you stunned considering The Others recorded this 30 years after the folk-rock explosion of the Sunset Strip and beyond.
