Emergency Exit — “Maybe Too Late”: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — March 28, 2023


776) Emergency Exit — “Maybe Too Late”

Cool ’66/’67 garage B-side from Seattle. Glendoras//DJ Mean Mojo Mathias says:

[The song is an] absolutely fabulous garage jangle rocker on Dunhill!! I got knocked by the great guitar playing when I first heard this, great vocals too! Just excellent!! They were from Seattle, WA, and made this double sided killer in late 1966 on Ru-Ro, and national release on Dunhill in early 1967.


Jopabe64 adds that “[t]his record hit the survey at Seattle’s KJR in December of ’66 and reached #20. Their next one, “It’s Too Late Baby,” (guess they were obsessed with promptness) hit the survey in April ’67 and reached #15.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpF0Eb6BsRI)

Unfortunately, as Psychedelicized says, “[t]here is very little known about The Emergency Exit. The band was active from 1965 until 1967 and featured Paul Goldsmith, later a part of Calliope.” (https://psychedelicized.com/playlist/e/the-emergency-exit/)
