THE SHOWMEN - OUR LOVE WILL GROW / YOU'RE MY EVERYTHING


The LEAST thing I can do since I missed yesterday's entry would be to feature two sides of this amazing rarity, right? This Virginia based group (which included Mr General Johnson who went on to fame with Chairmen Of The Board and their amazing hit 'Give Me Just A Little More Time") released quite a few records, and their tune "It Will Stand", which is an anthem of the staying power of rock n roll, was a minor hit (and a major hit in the south) twice; in 1961 then again upon re-release in '64.

This record, which unfortunately hit nowhere, was recorded towards the end of their career for tiny Swan Records. Who knows; if this one had better distribution...Both sides are stellar.

from 1965...

Thanks for posting these great 45's.

I used to spend my summers near Philadelphia and listened a lot of soul music on the radio. Your site reminds me of how much I enjoyed this stuff.
