The Liberty Bell: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — July 4, 2022

THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE 1960s THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD

505) The Liberty Bell — “Look for Tomorrow”

Scorching hot ‘68 B-side by Corpus Christi garage band.

Bruce Eder talks of the band:

With a few breaks, the Liberty Bell might have been America’s Yardbirds — as it worked out, however, the group suffered the undeserved fate of being a footnote in the history of Corpus Christi rock bands. . . . [O]riginally named the Zulus[, they] played a mix of blues-rock drifting toward psychedelia, driven by some fairly ambitious guitar work by lead axeman Al Hunt. In 1967, they hooked up with Carl Becker, the co-owner of J-Beck Records, which, at the time, was recording the hottest local band, the Zachary Thaks. Becker signed them to his new Cee-Bee Records, and suggested a name change to the Liberty Bell. . . . [T]he group sound[ed] like an American version of the Yardbirds with more of an angry punk edge, courtesy of lead singer Ronnie Tanner. But the real star of the group was lead guitarist Al Hunt, who wrote most of the material in those days and played like Jeff Beck On a good day. Tanner exited the group in early 1968 and was replaced by Chris Gemiottis, formerly of the Zakary Thaks . . . . [who wrote “Look for Tomorrow”].

“Look for tomorrow, not today. Look for tomorrow in a special way. Because today isn’t easy to face. Look for tomorrow. Look for tomorrow. Look for tomorrow. I tried tomorrow. It wasn’t fine. I tried tomorrow trying to rest my mind. And then I saw your image come so close, so close, so close to me. . . . Look for tomorrow. Look for tomorrow. Look for tomorrow.”
