Leroy And The Drivers - Rainy Night In Georgia / The Sad Chicken album FLAC

Leroy And The Drivers ‎– Rainy Night In Georgia, The Sad Chicken. Does anybody really think "The Sad Chicken" sounds like it was released in 1967? Have always thought it sounded unlikely, and happened to come across release details in Billboard dated May 30th, 1970. The top side was "Rainy Night In Georgia", a Tony Joe White tune from his second album 'To Be Continued', released in 1969: Brook Benton had the hit version in 1970. The Sad Chicken' was the 'B' Side.

I'm with you on this one. I know Butch claimed Sad Chicken was taped in 1967 when Egon interviewed him for us, but one has to be wary of old men long of tongue and short of memory. The band already had sides out on Coral before the Duo release, so it can't have been true that they only had one song in the bag and, besides, this style would have represented a really sudden change in style from their vocal numbers already released. It's highly likely that both sides were recorded 1969-70. Either that or they cut Sad Chicken in 1967 and replicated the exact same studio sound three years later to do a cover of Rainy Night. We could be wrong, I suppose. The intro is based on the Funeral March (Chopin's Sonata No. 2), by the way. The Song of the Volga Boatmen is another piece entirely.

There was an interview with one of the band in Big Daddy magazine from 2001/2, it may have been Butch Yates, not sure (I'd have to search for the magazine) but he was positive about it being recorded 1967. It could have been held back for various reasons. The theme of the interview was how ahead of its time the record sounded especially since it was a song they made in under ten minutes of jamming, as according to the band member they only had one song rehearsed. The start of the sad chicken is based on the vulgar boatman. The band was called the drivers because they were all Chicago cab drivers.

I agree 67 sounds a little early, but this is not dissimilar to JB's output from 67-68. Billboard release dates do not reflect when the track was actually made. Even today a track may be made 2-3 years before being released officially
