KENNY & THE KASUALS - JOURNEY TO TYME b/w I'M GONNA MAKE IT


Starting out around 1963, kenny & The Kasuals became one of the busiest and best bands working in the north Texas teen dance/ fraternity circuit. By 1964, their sound took on a strong r&b/ British Invasion influence, and the band found themselves becoming more and more popular and by 1966 they cut their first record, which was followed up with an LP that is one of the most collectable albums of the sixties.

This, their second 45, is the stuff of legend. One of the wildest (as well as most musically competent) garage rock singles (while I dig quite a few of the legendary "garage" records, an equal number leave me cold due to poor musicianship). This record is an absolute monster, and the b-side is a great British invasion style song as well.

This record was picked up for national distribution by United Artists, and while it was a hit in a few cities, it never broke nationally.

from 1966...

I got a UA copy of this and "I'm Gonna Make It" has really overtaken "Journey To Tyme" as my fave Kasuals side. I DJ with it and folks love it, the band really let their inner "Kink" hang out!
