#20 – Gary Puckett & The Union Gap – “Young Girl” – (1968)
What was the deal with the 1960s and the Civil War? Was it the whole “100 Years Later” thing or what? 55 more words
Wonderful track from their 1968 album ‘Uncle Meat’ that sounds like it is disintegrating and reforming throughout. Anyone familiar with Faust’s ‘The Faust Tapes’ will realise that the German band were doing something very similar to this on the early half of the 2nd side of the album; and seemed heavily influenced by The Mothers throughout their career. Dig!

Frank Beardsley’s (Henry Fonda) opening narration tells of how his children feel he neglected his wife and their mother; an interesting parallel to real life in which Fonda told his wife Frances Ford Seymour in 1949 he wanted a divorcee so he could remarry after an unhappy 13 year marriage; a confession which drove her to suicide. 365 more words
