036 - Conformity to Society and the Right Track

One of the recurring themes of this podcast is the mystery of the mystery band. Many times studios were booked by teenagers who came in, recorded one or two songs, paid the engineer, and left. Often these bands broke up shortly thereafter. 45s were thrown away, and master tapes lost, save for the studio copy. But that copy usually just had the name of the group.

And so, forty years after the fact, there are many groups that are just names on a tape box. This time, we have something even more unusual. We know the name of the song, "Conformity to Society," but we don't know the name of the group -- let alone who was in it!

Also in this podcast we feature the return of Clover, and a gritty tune
Bee Gee Stan shines in the Soul Spotlight this time around with her song, "Front Page Love." Stop the presses!Remember -- you don't need an iPod to listen to a podcast. Just download it straight to your computer from this link!
