Hey Glenn! Matt, fantastic show last night!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 5/25/19 3:29pm Mike Sin:

I owned this John Fred single for ages but never started investigating the LPs until i was an "adult" because i always figured the group was some commercial studio-created band and figured the arrangements would be too slick... my loss! This dude has so many top groovin' tracks.
  Sat. 5/25/19 3:29pm Miles:

I read a comment on the YouTube post of Spencer Davis' version of "If I Had A Hammer" that said "Judy" was based on IT. Doggone if they weren't right! really

Avatar Sat. 5/25/19 3:34pm Miles:

John Fred's first album is great. I don't have it but have the album cover which contains an Animals LP ( heartbreaking disappointment on the day) . That 1st one is a stone cold Florida blues garage killer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/25/19 3:34pm Matt Clarke:

@V: It's called "Cherish"
  Sat. 5/25/19 3:35pm V Priceless:

Which Animals LP did it have in it? Nothing more disappointing than having another record in sleeve after buying
