VA - Mini Hits Of Minneapolis LP 84
What a treasure this compilation turned out to be for someone like me who was born 'a stones throw' from the Mississippi in Minneapolis. I thought it said MTV hits at first with the clever logo. Here is who is on this: Joe Shalita, The Early Mammals (I remember this song from grade school!!), Johnny Rey and the Reaction (a new track for the folks who keep requesting the band--and he is gigging again), Two Guys, Flamin' Oh's (another new track from what we have here!), The Idle Strand (search for more here), What If (been waiting to post this band as I have a tenative theme waiting to post), Go Great Guns, Product (I think we posted them), Tom Bright, Idiot Savant (have featured them along with different band named 'Savant'). This comp. is absolutely GOLDEN for me to find and I guess the Early Mammals only released one album in their short history but the song here I remember that "ooh Ooh" song from long ago as they played it quite a bit on the radio but in the early seventies.
