“I trace a line against the sky, pondering life, waiting to die…”
This single on the Valiant label is the work of a group from Barstow, CA. ‘I’ll Sell My Soul’ is a moody garage number with a simple but very effective guitar intro/outro and organ solo.
‘Burning Flask’ is a jangling folk-rocker with a Byrds/Beau Brummels feel, and is yet to make it onto a compilation.
There is another single by an Allies on Reprise dating from 1968: ‘I Would Love You / Sound of Children’, though I can’t find any information to confirm whether or not it is the same band.
‘I’ll Sell My Soul’
$50 to $60 should be enough to secure a copy of the 1966 waxing. The a-side is probably easiest tracked down on Sixties Rebellion Volume 14.
