Limited blue colored vinyl LP pressing. 1966 was a busy year for the Shadows of Knight! Hot on heels of their hit '66 debut album and monster single "Gloria," they released their second long player, Back Door Men, before the year was out. It was another combustible collection of blazing blues covers and smoking originals. While there was still plenty of garage grit, they had already begun evolving stylistically. "The Behemoth" was a fine slice of raga rock while "Three for Love" jangled in a decidedly folk-rock style. Of particular note is their cover of the garage classic "Hey Joe." One of many bands to record the song that year, the Shadows of Knight version took the uptempo road and rendered a distinct rendition, albeit one with a very Byrds-ian chime.
