A classic of garage rock

As the youtube introduction says: Dirty Water was first recorded by California band The Standells in 1966 and composed by their producer, Ed Cobb. It is considered a classic of garage rock. The song is a mock paean to the city of Boston and its then-famously polluted Boston Harbor and Charles River.

One of those songs that made me think ‘wow’ when played by Mary Ann Hobbs.

I’ve picked this clip for good sound quality, despite the mismatch with a poor quality video
