The Peppermint Trolley Co. — “Trust”, Nick Garrie — “Seashore”, The Haigs — “Never Die”: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — September 20, 2021

136) The Peppermint Trolley Co. — “Trust”

Cool ‘68 single written by Paul Williams and Roger Nichols “performed” on a cool TV show — Mannix, the classic detective series. In the episode, as summarized by IMDb, “Mannix is hired by a secretive multi-millionaire to find his ex-wife. At least that’s what he has been told when he takes the job. The ex-wife, a prominent singer, supposedly committed suicide but has been seen since her supposed death.” ( As for the PTC, “Mannix’s search for clues brings him to a music recording studio where he walks in on a rehearsal by the [band] as Mannix listens and looks on approvingly.”

Here is a clip from Mannix:

Here’s the single:

137) Nick Garrie — “Seashore”

Another outtake from The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas, finally recorded by Nick in 2009 — a wonderful, wistful song.

138) The Haigs — “Never Die”

The Dutch band where Golden Earring vocalist Barry Hay got his start. If you close your eyes, you could swear it’s the Beatles. The first of their 5 singles, from ‘66.
