The Elegants - Lost Souls c/w Minor Chaosdotdotdotdot
artworkThe b-side of this single is the third and rarest of the versions of "Minor Chaos." It must have been a big show stomper! One has to wonder why it was the flip?
Picks: Lost Souls, Minor Chaos

Track by Track Review


Lost Souls dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"Lost Souls" sounds heavily influenced by "Sincerely," with dark tremolo guitar, a subdued chorus, and slow sax lead. It trembles and booms with a murky charm. Sort of romance in the graveyard.

Minor Chaos dotdotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Big rockin' attack in a murky wash. The guitar is not prominent enough, but it's a very different arrangement of this great song. Every verse is arranged differently, like a mondo show piece. Sax wails, the drummer rocks, and energy is all in. It's not as cool as either The Treasures or Steve Rowe and the Furys, but it is quite striking.
