Tropics, The - You Better Move b/w It's You I Miss [7''] (Translucent Red Vinyl)

Translucent red vinyl!
Tampa, Florida legends the Tropics released a stack of great records in the sixties. But none of those singles is more coveted by garage collectors than their '66 masterpiece, ''You Better Move;'' a tambourine-bashing, harmonica-wailin,' epic screamer. With its super-threatening lyrics, delivered in a pathologically aggravated state by Tropics lead vocalist Mel Dryer, this record serves as a master class in anger mismanagement. ''You Better Move,'' incidentally, was co-penned by guitarist Buddy Pendergrass and a former Tropic, Dave Burke (who soon appeared on two Standells albums on Tower). B-side ''It's You I'll Miss'' finds the versatile Tropics in a Byrds bag; with a jangly, expertly-sung original. This Sundazed single places the Tropics at the top of the list of '66 garage bands, from Florida or any corner of the US of A.
