039 - Lovelight and the Electrical Banana

Dean Kohler didn't give up music when he was drafted in 1967. He formed a band with some fellow GIs and played in Southeast Asia. And they also recorded. We play their version of "I'm A Man" live from Vietnam!

Ever wonder about the theme music for this podcast? it's an instrumental version of "Days of a Quiet Sun" by the Baraccudas. You'll hear the finished version with vocals on this show!

Sir Guy is back in the Soul Spotlight, this time fronting for the Speller Bros. Band. They turn in a great perfomance on this 1969 track, "Let Home Cross Your Mind."

And we conclude with the Coachmen, who we featured last week. This group was active around Memphis and Little Rock, and racked up an impressive amount of regional airplay.
