Weird teen tragedy song "You Will Reap..." about taking too many pills and jumping off a high building - The flip side is Little Black Shoes which has the feel of an old country ballad - not exactly but the general feel.
"A Denver-based group, the Shelltones would likely have participated in the vibrant teen rock ‘n’ roll scene that extended north to Boulder and Fort Collins and south to Colorado Springs in the early and mid-‘60s.
The eerie “Blue Castaway,” written by Cary Theil, the group’s bassist, would be the Shelltones’ only commercial release. The perfect vessel for the cavernous production qualities of Band Box’s south Broadway studios, “Blue Castaway” takes the tremolo-driven atmospherics of the Islanders’ “Enchanted Sea” and the Safaris’ “Lonely Surf Guitar” and, to a certain degree, the Viscounts’ “Harlem Nocturne” to some new, lonelier place.
Flipside “Mark’s Blues,” another instrumental, features the hot fretwork of guitarist Mark Bretz. After the Shelltones, Bretz would play keyboards with Denver-area garage band the Wild Ones in the mid-‘60s before joining, as guitarist, a late incarnation of Boulder’s nationally-known rock ‘n’ rollers the Astronauts in 1967. Bretz would remain with the Astronauts through their name change to SunshineWard before settling in Denver for a career as a music teacher."

I was born in 1954 in Topeka, KS, but raised in Kansas City, MO. My full name is Michael Angelo Nigro. I began my recording career in 1975 by becoming a studio musician at Liberty Recording in Kansas City. Between recording commercials and backing other artists I started doing my own recordings. This was the birthplace of the original Michaelangelo album. After about a year I left Liberty Recording to become a studio musician at Big-K records, also in Kansas City. By coincidence Big-K used the same type of recording equipment as Liberty Recording, so I finished mixing the first album there. It was released under the Guinn label in 1977 and was a limited release with only 500 of them pressed.Read more HERE
Bon Jour Mr. VIPIf you like what you've heard, get the full album HERE.
Children stare into space,
And contemplate a mongrel race,
Of those who eat our bones with grace,
With sin dehind their faces.
Thirsty men will dig their wells,
And drink the words that they will sell,
And hear the lies that they will tell,
Or change the words in places.
Bon Jour Mr. VIP, you’ve fooled us well,
You’ve mastered your deception so well, so well,
Greedy fools will sell their soul,
And masquerade from hot to cold,
And then deny their being told,
With grins upon their faces.
Corporations smear the count,
And terminate the ones who dought,
The righteous wrong of their amount,
And leave to them no traces.
Respective hippocritic thieves,
Who swear to God and make believe,
The truth is all that they perceive,
While dollar bills he chases.
They’re the cancer of our times,
Suppressing us into the binds,
Of this is yours and that is mine,
Your names he then erases.

In the late 1940s two young boys from the little town of Coeburn in southwestern Virginia were getting into music. Jim McReynolds played guitar and sang a lovely clear tenor. His brother Jesse sang and played the mandolin. They experimented freely in their music, searching constantly for a musical style that would suit them and yet be « different » from what had gone before.
Their varied influences pointed the McReynolds’ vocal style onto a path quite distinct from that simultaneously being explored by a couple of close neighbors – Carter and Ralph Stanley.
Just as the Stanleys did, Jim and Jesse first worked on their own in Norton, Virginia, and nearby West Virginia, calling their band « the McReynolds Brothers and the Cumberland Mountain Boys ». Around 1949 they went with Hoke Jenkins and Curly Seckler to Augusta, Georgia, where they tried a conventional Blue Grass format. In 1951, feeling a need to test something different, they put together a western-style band including steel guitar and went to Kansas. They did a « Sons of the Pioneers » type show featuring numbers like « Cool Water » and « Home on the Range ».
They would spend close to a year in 1951 working at WPFB in Middletown, Ohio. While there, they made their first commercial recording for the Kentucky label with Larry Roll. Uncertain as to how the whole thing would go, the boys decided to adopt the name « the Virginia Trio » in case things didn’t work out well.
As it turned out, the sessions were a great musical success. Joined by Larry Roll on the vocals and Dave Woolum on bass, the group produced a lovely collection of sacred trios. And there, one step behind some inspired vocal work, took place the stunning debut of Jesse’s original mandolin roll, later to be dubbed « crosspickin ».

As a teenager, Jesse formed his first country group and performed to capacity crowds with some of America's most popular artists. [...] His burning desire to sing lured him to Nashville, where he pursued his career as an entertainer.
Although achieving many of his goals while climbing the ladder of success, his personal life was being torn apart. In his futile search for happiness, he faced his ultimate crisis with the destruction of his marriage and the loss of his family. He was left literally without a reason to live. At this darkest moment of his life, Jesse accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. His new-found faith brought about a chain reaction of miracles into his life, beginning with the restoration of his marriage and family. His born-again experience also brought a new direction to his music.

Billy Scott, his wife Barbara and Janet Helm were members of the Georgia Prophets. When the group broke up in 1971, they had to come up with another name for the three of them. They decided to call themselves the “THREE PROPHETS.” In 1974, Billy produced the only album for the “THREE PROPHETS.” It was a live album, recorded in many of the popular nightclubs in which the group performed.
The Atwell Studio (then RS Recording Service) was located in nearby Lafayette, TN and owned by Loryn Atwell. The studio operated his own label, Atwell records, of which the first release was by The Pedigo Brothers in 1959. It seems that most of the releases on the label were custom recordings (country & gospel).
