Released on 08/02/10. The Beacon Street Union were a highly acclaimed Boston band who recorded two long-out-of-print albums for MGM. They were part of what became labelled the Boss Town Sound along with bands like Ultimate Spinach and Orpheus. This is their highly collectable second album which has long been regarded as a classic of the genre.
The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens was issued in late 1968, promoted by a single release of their cover of the rock ‘n' roll classic Blue Suede Shoes .
The Beacon Street Union's diverse, dynamic sound was influenced by such bands as The Yardbirds and The Remains. Sleeve-notes by TUNE IN co-founder Gray Newell include fresh quotes from various original band members.
