SVT-New Year 7" 415 Records 1979



Ok this might be my last one today. SVT is a strange one. Jack Cassidy might sound familiar to some of you older one's. He played in Jefferson Airplane and then in Hot Tuna. With the punky sounds of North Beach making waves, Jack decided to take one of his Hot Tuna members and one future Huey Lewis and the News member and start SVT. Don't let this fool you, this is quite a good rockin 7" that was released on 415 Records, which was home to The Red Rockers, Translator, Romeo Void, and others. They released another single after this in 1979, an Ep entitled Extended Play and an album I think in 1981. I have a few friends that swear by these guys, and to be honest, this single is good! Didn't I say that a few seconds ago?

  4. These guys are quite good! One of those bands that I always read about in the 80s, but never had a chance to hear. I picked up the reissue of their LP not too long ago & it's well worth checking out. Thanks for the single!
