Bear’s Classic Video Of The Day [VIDEO]
I have a HUGE collection of old records and I keep them in a plce called my Vinyl Vault. A whole tempurature controlled room of old lps and 45′s. Here is a great classic I thought you might enjoy.
Orpheus is a rock band from Worcester, Massachusetts that enjoyed popularity in the 1960s and early 1970s. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the avant guard band. The band’s origins were in the summer of 1964 when Bruce Arnold and Jack McKennes of Worcester, Massachusetts, formed a folk duo called The Villagers (based on their origins as a house band of a Cape Cod coffee house called the Villager). By early 1967, the Villagers had gained wider popularity, In the Summer of 1967 the still unnamed quartet settled on the name “Orpheus” and recorded a demo tape with nine songs, including “Can’t Find The Time To Tell You”, “I’ll Fly”, “As They All Fall” and “The Dream”. After shopping the demo tape and receiving nine recording offers, the group eventually signed with Alan Lorber and recorded their first album, Orpheus, in the fall of 1967.
The album and a single “Can’t Find The Time” were subsequently released in January 1968, and the group played a few small clubs in Chicago, Detroit, and Philadelphia, before making their official debut in late February of that year at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village.
While together, Orpheus played on the same bill with a number of major acts of the era, including Cream, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, The Who, and many others. The group disbanded in December 1969 when 2 of the band members were fired. Finally, after 35 years a new Bruce Arnold cd, “Orpheus Again”, was released in February of 2010 on Arnold’s BAM! label. It included 10 new songs plus a contemporary re-make of “Can’t Find the Time”.
