THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE 1960s THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD
575) Knights Bridge — “Make Me Some Love”
B-side of only single (‘68) by the Odessa, Texas, band — not the Knights Bridge Quintet from Waco, Texas! (http://ontheroadsouth.blogspot.com/2011/06/knights-bridge-quintet.html) This is AP garage rock — these high schoolers should have gotten college credit!
Bolt 24 Hot Sounds calls the song a “[m]ighty psych-ish Texas classic [by s]tudents of Permian High School and incredibl[y] competent for a bunch of 16-17 yrs olds.” (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HK1u-GpGjI0) DJ Big Leg says “those great tones & feedback with great vocal make this song a true gem”, (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VxaOPAku-6o) and Thomas Smith exclaims “[t]he fuzz on this one shook the rafters” (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HK1u-GpGjI0and) and “[m]ake me some FUZZZZZ Groovy record”! (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F62oTtfeOZc). Lisa Prest says “freaking spectacular!. (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HK1u-GpGjI0). Though Christian Rouse does chime in “Make me some love”? They make love sound like it’s a sandwich.” (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VxaOPAku-6o)
Drummer Ted Franklin recalls that:
We cut the record in February of 1968. We wrote Make Me Some Love the night before in the motel, we needed a b side. Turned out to be the most popular of the two, I guess. . . . We had a car wreck on the way back from the studio, tore up my drums. We were all Jr’s that yr.It was a great trip.http://detailedtwang.blogspot.com/2007/07/knights-bridge-both-sides-now.html
