In August 1967, The London Dri entered Audio Sonic Sound Studio to record what would be their only 45-rpm single.  ‘Life in Your Hand’, was an original song written by guitarist Bruce Thomas, and backed by ‘Dona, Dona’, a re-working of a Jewish folk song with a new arrangement by the group. Released on the Yobo label, the two songs represented the entire released output by the Los Angeles-based combo. For years, if recalled at all, The London Dri would be remembered for that lone single. Between their 1965 formation and their disbandment in 1970, however—and in between hundreds of performances and even a movie appearance—The London Dri recorded several other songs. Had they been released, they would certainly have earned the group a more prominent standing today among Hollywood rock groups of the era. The London Dri had it all: From Garage-rock to classic US Psychedelia to Who styled Mod-pop. Finally here is the band’s legacy – 11 killer tracks in their distinctive London Dri style. Comes with detailed 8-page booklet with history by Mike Dugo & pics
 
     
 
The vinyl version of London Dri is a limited 100 copy only edition with exactly the same tracks as the CD. It has a coloured LP sized insert, comes with a hand-numbered full coloured paste-on-sleeve and is available through our Break-A-Way mailorder only.
 
     
 

Chalk this one up as another big winner for Break-A-Way; in fact one of the very best on their catalog.
