If you didn't listen to AM radio in the seventies, you probably don't know these guys. It's Crabby Appleton. Even if you did listen to AM radio in the seventies, you probably know only one of their songs. "Go Back" was their big hit. Make that only hit. Man, these guys came and went so fast it was years before I heard another song by them (thanks again 99 cent bin). If you haven't heard it, listen to "Go Back". Hell, even if you have heard it, how long has it been? Listen to it. Is there any question why it was a hit? The Tommy James plucking that begins it, and, man oh man, when the fuzz comes in, and just listen to the drums as the song builds. Good God, do they give that guy some legroom. As awesome as this sounds (digitally, much as it did on the radio), this is one instance where to hear it on vinyl brings it to whole another level. Watch the bins for that album cover above. It's worth it. This is a good song. It would never find a home on the radio now.
