Spring Concert ’67
I’m pretty sure I originally bought this because it had a rather crudely hand decorated back cover with ancient pictures of school girls and a birthday inscription of some sort. It was in rough shape so I probably justified the purchase by telling myself I could always give it to a friend who I tend to give things like that to. I really only need the weakest of excuses to buy junk, especially record junk. And besides, I’m sure it was just one more dollar among the 6 other dollars I’d be standing in line to waste anyway. I think it actually took me a few days to even look at it once I got it home. But when I finally did I realized the track list looked promising. Better than promising even. Wait, a High School battle of the bands full of soul covers? Huh? Really? Where did I get this? By the time it finally hit the turntable it was instantly crystal clear that this was something special. I mean, lord have mercy. These kids are just absolutely KILLING IT.
Sorry to be so vague on the above details of this story. I’ve had to piece most of this together after the fact as I actually fell out of my chair stone dead after hearing the Dynamic III track for the first time. They somehow brought me back but things have been a bit hazy ever since.
Dynamic III: “Fantastic II”
Ravenettes: “Nowhere To Run/Do Right Woman”
Majestics: “Gettin’ Ready/What Love Has Joined Us Together/My Girl”
