I don’t have much info on this band, I’m guessing an early to mid ’60s release since it has a Beatles sound.
Yet another rare one out of Cinci. This hillbilly bopper was released in 1956 and has appeared on a few reissue compilations.
In an effort to post something for Halloween, I remembered another person from Cinci who for the most part….just want to have his songs heard & released. Today, the mention of his name alone still strikes fear in many. But in the mid to late 60′s Charlie had met and performed for the right people as he tried to accomplish his goal. Had they satisfied him…perhaps…later events may not have occurred, one will never know. As a musician, he was an outsider with strange ideas and songs. The same type that aligns with many other musicians/bands here. Here’s a cut from a LP that came out in 1970…after he made the spotlight for the wrong reason.
I’ve been diggin’ the new Rolling Stones tune “Doom and Gloom” and thought of this ditty from 1978. Now, I hope I ain’t jinxin’ anything here and Keith lives a long life…rockin’ ’til the end. I’ve read that The Ed Davis Band was Cinci’s early punk rockers. Great tune!

Yet another gem from Cinci….this one from 1958 on the LUCKY label. The late ’50s seemed to have a major focus on space and spaceships as heard on this post. Nelson was born in Richmond Virginia but must have ended up in Ohio at some point because all of his 45rpm releases were on Ohio labels.
UPDATE: I did some diggin’ and found the following:
Band members on this release include Zekie Browning-guitar ; Herman Kriss- upright bass ; Glenn Scott- steel guitar ; Teddy Bear Brown – snare drum and Hubert Cox-fiddle. Here’s a pic of Nelson at the upright:
From June 1967 comes this release by The Great Society. This is the first label it was released on. Later pressings were on COUNTERPART.
Here’s a cool novelty cut from 1958. Not much info on this one other than what’s seen on the label . Reminds of the stuff Lux (R.I.P.) from The Cramps was into.
Here’s some ’60s era soul out of Cinci that has the James Brown feel to it.
This “suggestive” country bopper was released in 1952. Not much info is known here other than what is seen on the record label.
