034 - Ida Sands and Dust

We start this edition of Garage/Soul '66 with the Flys. We don't know much about this group, save that they hailed from Washington, DC and cut a single track back in 1966. But it's a good one.

East Coast legend Lenis Guess returns, this time fronting a band that perfectly captured the East Coast Beach sound of the mid-60's. If you like Bill Deal and Rondells, you'll dig "Workin' for My Baby."

Miss Ida Sands makes a triumphant return to the Soul Spotlight with "You'll Lose a Good Thing." This 1967 recording had everything going for it -- save chart action. And after hearing it, you'll probably wonder why it didn't have that as well!

Dust was formed in 1969 from the dust of several groups we’ve featured on earlier episodes of GS66 (maybe that's where they got the name). Members came from the Blue and the Grey, the Purple Canteen, and the Tuesday Blues. The combination of all that talent produced some great psychodelic tracks. This show we feature one of them, with the heavy name "Through the Silk Keyhole." Far out!
