Description


Description

One of the rarer mainstream label Garage 45’s, that seldom turns up for sale. It appeared briefly on the 1993 Garage compilation album “60’s Rebellion Vol. 5. A good choice for the compilers as this is certainly rebellious Garage.

Delivered by a six man Michigan gathering, and both sides written and produced by them mysterious Bill Neal. This vibrant group previously released under the name the Princeton Five, their Michigan reputation enhanced by their snarling lead vocalist Vince DeMaggio, who also co-wrote the a-side.

Starting life as “Johnny and The Cardigans” morphing into the Princeton 5 releasing three 45’s on their own D.I.Y. label “Princeton” in 1964 they added another member, revamped their name and got a break with a national label. Not much of a break though as this Philips 45, is rarer than all those local Princeton label releases. This 45 sold virtually nothing, consigned to the cut-out bins without even breaking surface. After 1966 we known nothing about their eventual demise.

Rare Garage indeed..
