I Wanna Get To The Truth I Suppose

click for enlarged view

I used to own a whole slew of Ace of Hearts 45s (wish I still had the Mission of Burma ones), but now all I have is this one, and the Neighborhoods. I wasn't all that into the Infliktors 45 when I first bought it, back when I was 19 or 20 or whenever just to keep up with my Ace of Hearts collection, because it's definitely not a punk record. I guess it's a good thing I held onto it, though, because I can appreciate it a lot more now. This ain't punk, it's dirty blues, or else it's white boys who ain't got a job, with the guitar recorded about as loud as any 45 that I've heard since, so watch out for your speakers.

The mp3 file on this post is now a listen-only (non-downloadable) file. For those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original file.

or you could just get a program to rip the stream (like all2wav.com) that'll wotk.

thanks for this, one of my fav 45's from the boston punk scene, now I don't have to set up a phono to convert my copy.

Lee Ritter was a very close friend of mine from 1965 on to about 1970 in Yonkers, N.Y..

I would like very much to find a way to hear his "Infliktors" recordings.

I spoke to him on the telephone just before he passed.

Thanx...

Is there any way that you could e-mail to me his stuff...? As an mp3...? It would mean a lot to me if I could have that. I was in a band with him for a time. I played the Rhythem Guitar. I still remember the songs that Lee tought me. We weren't great. We both knew Steve Tyler from Airosmith.
