006 - Sir Guy and the Apple of My Eye

Garage/Soul 66 Podcast #006 - Sir Guy and the Apple of My Eye

What a mix of groups in this episode! First we go to Grundy, Virginia down in the southwest part of the state for a track by Sound on Sound. Then it's across the state to the Eastern Shore for a soulful ballad by Sir Guy.

Off to Arkansas for the Marion Deaton Group, and then -- well, we don't know. Because the Psychodelic Psymphony is a complete and total cipher. Don't know who they were, or where they came from. But we're glad they left a recording or two behind. Their low-fi freak-out "Mad Mod Speed Ball" rocks.

005 - Xciters and Wild Cherries

Garage/Soul 66 Podcast #005 - Xciters and Wild Cherries

This show we feature three groups who only recorded one 45 rpm record each. But what recordings they were!

The Xciters were only together for a few months, yet they managed to get into the studio at least once. The Wild Cherries had a longer run -- two years, but high school graduation put an end to the band. We play one of their two recorded songs.

And we also put two sides of a 45 back together. Mark IV Wilson laid down a hot dance track spread over two sides of a disc. We present both parts of "Jump Up and Down" back together!

The Xciters: Upsetter
Lost Souls, Vol. 1

Mark IV Wilson: Jump Up and Down, Parts 1 and 2
