Return to Wimp Scuzz: "I Cried" by The Chains

Tender vocals, an admirably non-macho willingness to admit to crying and a super-expressive guitar line make The Chains' "I Cried" a particularly touching example of 1960s wimp scuzz.  Remarkably, it wasn't released at the time but, for those of us not fortunate enough to have been kicking around the high schools and dancehalls of McKeesport, PA in 1964, Get Hip Records pressed it up at some point (April 2011-ish?) on 7" vinyl. When The Man sees fit to pay me next, I'll buy me a copy, for sure!
