Virgil Murray´s Tomorrow´s Yesterday - I Still Care - Kool Kat

60s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, April 19, 2010 21:48:36

Not an easy band-name for an aspiring radio DJ to play around with, perhaps this is why this record sank without trace, twice on the same label and then again on Kool Kat just shortly after. Originally released on Tommy Wills´Indiana label Airtown the single sold next to nowt, and when Detroit based Kool Katrecords tried their luck with it this did not change, if anything, this release is problably even scarcer than the Airtown ones. Even though I personally love this type of frantic stomping soul with garage influences it is hard too see the market which it was aimed for at the time of its release in 1968. Problably the white college kids in the Michigan and Indiana states who loved a good toga party accompanied by a mix of soul and rock sounds. Actually the college circuit was quite profitable for smaller bands from the area to play and I guess that eventually the cross breeding of musical styles that took place on stage at these hedonistic events eventuallyhad to give birth to some records. Enjoy!
