The Jet Tones "Henry"

Best known for their "Jet Tone Boogie" instro on chess label these cats bring you this monster brutal killer stomper "Henry". And hey, they cut this gem twice in different versions!! First one issued on the Cleveland based label named PIX (1102) in Oct. '59 and the 2nd one same year or early 1960 on Plaid (PL-102) Label from Ohio.Both discs with instro "Twangy"!! on the flip.
On this Volume65 you will find the PLAID track only. But here you can get the rare PIX cut, too! That's why you're on Mean Gene's Bull Session, right?!

The Broughams "Baby You Just Wait"

Short Story:
Those Teens formed a High School Band called "The Broughams" and recorded this little rocker "Baby You Just Wait!" in their High-School Studio. Then they sent some bucks to Pentagon Records for 300 copies to be pressed. Released in '57 on Pentagon 6935.
Plain & Simple, isn't? But the 45 didn't go well. Cause of the bad sound and vinyl quality most copies were thrown away or sold to friends. Only a few survived. That makes the Pentagon 45 a super rare one.
On Bison Bop Volume65 you will find this ultra rare Pentagon release.
But the Story goes on. One year later they convinced the Boston based Label INDIGO to record "Baby You Just Wait" again. They agreed. Indigo owners changed their Band name from "The Broughams" to "The Spirals" and issued the wax in 1958 under Indigo 500! Better sound quality, great drums and good breaks. In short, a koooool rocka! On Gene's you will find this later Indigo Release of course!
