008 - Small Town Boy Crying For Her

Garage/Soul 66 Podcast #008 - Small Town Boy Crying For Her

The Statler Brothers are the most famous family act to come out of Staunton, Virginia -- but they certainly weren't the only one. In 1959 the Miller Brothers also started performing around the Shenandoah Valley, and eventually wound up in the recording studio in the mid 1960's. The episode of the Garage Soul '66 podcast we play a cut from that session.

We also revisit a group featured in an earlier program, the Swinging Machine. And we play the flip side of the Barefact's sole 45 rpm (we featured the A side in episode 004)

And our Soul Spotlight shines on the Anglos, and their epic sage of the "Small Town Boy."
