|March 5, 6 & 7, 1971: Most of our gigs were area shcools, local parking lots, and the 4H Fairgrounds. This was an opportunity to play the big city - Louisville, Kentucky. It ended up being a hole-in-the-wall teen center, in a bad part of town. They were even a day late starting the advertising.|
Record cover - "Let's Go For A ride" / "She Sees You"
I had written a few songs, and we were getting a good reaction to "Let's Go For A ride". We had made a garage recording of the song, and Byron Rohrig, a DJ at the local radio station, had been playing it on the air. We found a little recording studio in Fairdale, Kentucky that offered a 45 package - Studio time and 500 singles for $500, as I recall. On May 8, 1971 we all had our first experience in a recording studio... and it was glorious!

Steve had left the band in september, so we decided to continue to work as a 3-piece. This was the final gig. Notice the attempt to capitalize on the fact that we had a record!
