047 - Group Nine and Urban 44

We start the show with the Morning Disaster. This band wrote (and recorded) songs that were a cut above the run-of-the-mill garage band. For some reason, though, the tapes of their 1967 recording session were never released -- until Arcania International got hold of them, that is. From that legendary session we play their original tune "Urban 44."

Longtime listeners know our theme and background music is "Days of s Quiet Sun" by Wilson Castle. But it's not the only version of the tune. Group Nine first recorded the song, and as you'll hear it's very different then the later Wilson Castle track.

The Soul Duo take the Soul Spotlight with a cautionary tale, "This is Your Day." In this song the duo take the roles of a good woman and triflin' man. Fine mid-sixties soul.

As a group, the Woo Too Country Band didn't last a year, but they managed to accumulate a large following in both Arkansas and Missouri. Their track "Only Going Up the Road" is as gritty as they come, and help explain the band's popularity.
