Description

It is very unusual for us to grade anything MINT unless its Christmas - this August 1967 MOD shaker before today was an unplayed archive copy, perfect in every way.

Totally pristine!

Milan Radenkovich a highly gifted Yugoslavian, later Florida, USA raised took on the imaginative persona of "Leather Boy" but sadly passed away at the tender age of 29 years, way before he potential. leaving a mysterious catalog of what might have been for this talented writer, producer, singer who in his short career cover.

At the age of 23 he was presented by 20th Century Fox as ""presenting a bright new star" a possible teen idol with his good looks and aptitude for a good Rock & Roll performance. But with a couple of years he'd upped his game incorporating potent Garage/MOD style into his repertoire, cutting some impressively wild tracks.

This 45 gives up TWO of them.

"Soulin' written, arranged and produced by himself, gives up an uncompromising cocktail of driving bass guitar pulses, brutal Hammond Organ rhythms and a screaming girl-group assistance take "Leather Boy" on a foot-to-the-floor high octane stomping trip, just brilliantly constructed by Milan. So very MOD!

The flipside is equally impressive, "On The Go" starts with a revving motorcycle before crashing headlong into pulsating "Garage". Milan's understanding of hard driven Punk/Garage is evident, as he dispenses with the girls, replacing them with are dispensed with savage guitars, a few more revving motorcycle and oodles of attitude.

Two killer sides from a highly dexterous music talent. All his recording leave you with a feeling of what could he have achieved...

There is very little exposure of his work on the internet as his family have been allegedly embroiled in fights over receiving copyright royalties. If anyone deserves to get paid for his work, this multi-gifted cult-figure who do it all himself, certainly does.
