The Sloths - Makin Love 7" Reissue


Product Information

In 1965, five high school kids from Beverly Hills recorded a 45rpm single featuring two original songs “Makin’ Love” and “You Mean Everything.” They called themselves THE SLOTHS. Only a few hundred singles were pressed, some of them with a picture sleeve they designed and printed themselves on an old mimeograph machine. By the end of 1966 the Sloths had broken up, and were all but forgotten.

Four decades later the Sloths’ only record has taken on an almost mythical quality among a new generation of garage rock fans and musicians. “Makin’ Love” has been covered by scores of bands, including the seminal Detroit rockers the Gories, who recorded it for their album I Know You Fine, But How You Doin’. Original copies of the Sloths single with picture sleeve are now selling for astronomical sums.

Now UT Records has reissued this mega-rare single on 7-inch vinyl in all its primitive, jungle beatin' teen garage majesty, along with the dead-cool folk-rock flipside, "You Mean Everything" (amazingly, never reissued until now!)
