Kenny & The Kasuals !

This Dallas group -- too accomplished to be called a garage band in the usual sense of the term -- was pretty popular in their hometown in the mid-'60s, but never made any noise on the internationale level. It's ironic that much of their reputation rests on a live album of covers, Impact, that ranks among the most collectable LPs of the '60s, as the group actually wrote a lot of their own material.
Starting in the mid-'60s as a sort of raucous Dave Clark Five-meets-the Stones combo, the Kasuals progressed to acid punk with their most popular local hit, "Journey to Tyme" (which would become one of the most valued singles by '60s garage collectors).
Lead by Kenny Daniel, a cult legend in the music business, Kenny and the Kasuals provide great fun and impeccable musicianship !

I was never too keen on "journey". "Don`t let your baby go" however is an absolute killer! Thank you.

I second Mr. Barf's comment...
"Journey..." bites, but "Don't Let..." is a true blue stomper
