Illinois Speed Press, The - The Illinois Speed Press (Vinyl)
Country- / Folkrock
Regular price €19,90
Illinois Speed Press was a Chicago-spawned band whose sound combined elements of R&B and country music in a powerful double-lead-guitar attack. It was enough to turn them into stars in Chicago, get them a contract with a major label, and a move to Los Angeles, paving the way for longtime careers for their two guitarists. Though the Illinois Speed Press was a late-'60s phenomenon in Chicago, their roots went back a full decade, traceable to a late-'50s band called the Capitols (no relation to the soul outfit of that name), who played local high school functions and the YMCA.
