Groovy Grubworm

Fun cover and quite a nice track selection! :) According to wiki's Harlow Wilcox entry, ""Groovy Grubworm" has sold over a million copies and was nominated for a Grammy in 1969." Impressive!

A shame the back cover isn't as fun as the front. 

I'd never heard of Plantation Records before this, but it really seems to be a case of a small company that made some big waves in the industry before it ended. "The label is best known for the Jeannie C. Riley 45rpm single, "Harper Valley P.T.A." which was a number one pop record in 1968," which you can see on the back cover up there. 

Here's a video of Harlow and the boys performing "Groovy Grubworm" live (and talking about this album a  bit too):

  1. I love guitar albums. I'll always pay a quarter or fifty cents for one.


What say you?
