014 - Coachmen and Heart Attacks

A stellar show this time around. We start with a crazy song by the Virginia-based group the Heart Attacks. Then it's up to the nation's capitol for a powerful ballad by Bernard Smith -- vintage 60's soul.

The Perpetual Spirits of Turpentine had a peculiar name, that's for sure -- but their music was pure garage pop. And their song "I'm a Lucky Guy" has the distinction of being one of the few true stereo tracks we've played on our podcast!

And we close with the Coachmen, a group that was very active throughout Arkansas in the mid 60's. They opened for many important acts on tour, and even played at the 1965 World's Fair -- and this was while the band members were still in high school!
