COULORED BALLS: “Flash” b/w “Dave the Rave”: 7”

Sep 26, 2019

This Australian band’s ’70s output continues to see light due to several reissues in recent years. I haven’t found anything not to like about this somewhat obscure pub rock band. They are solid providers of the bovver sound. This is a repro of a promo single found on many glam-enthusiasts want list. The original ’73 release precedes the band’s classic Ball Power LP. If there’s any reason for this single not to be essential it’s because “Flash” is the first track on the Ball Power album. But the B Side, “Dave the Rave,” is a scorcher for the boogie with high cuffs crowd. –Billups Allen (Just Add Water,
