158) The Brogues — “I Ain’t No Miracle Worker”
The Nuggets comp calls this November ‘65 B-side from the San Joaquin Valley band a “near perfect 60s punk record.” The band’s singer and drummer would later form Quicksilver Messenger Service.
159) Robbi Curtice — “When Diana Paints the Picture”
‘68 B-side by Rob Ashmore. As he explains in a YouTube note:
“Despite much initial hype and optimism, the original production was flawed and so not accepted for release by the UK record companies. So the single was released in USA only, with ‘Soul of a Man’, originally intended as the B side, promoted to the A side. It sold well on the West coast of USA.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CQKdSsseKY
