What Ever Happened To The Band of 59
Eddie ‘the bat’ says…

Man, I love this album. Oh, how it pains me to think I didn’t get this album until late 1998 on vinyl. The mp3 conversion of what I assume are the original masters sound brilliant!

Big Daddy is a concept band that recorded under the guise of being an authentic 1950’s era ‘doo-wop’ band that was captured on a U.S.O. tour in southeast Asia in the late 1950’s. After being rescued, they decided to cut some more contemporary songs but only knew the musical stylings of the pre-British Invasion 50’s. Or, to use the words of band member Marty Kaniger, “We made old versions of new songs.” The results are perhaps a precursor to the modern ‘mash-up’, where two songs seem to exist in the same space. Wow!
