(I've seen the group name as The Sound Judgement) Here's the info from my promo copy of that 45 by THE SOUND JUDGMENT (spelled this way on the 45): KAPP K-914 HAPPY WITHOUT YOU (Laguna-Pinz) b/w BABY IT'S YOU (David-Bacharach-Williams) A Joe Renzetti Production I can e-mail you a label shot if you'd like.

The date: 1960. The place: Long Beach, CA. The situation: a broke teenager, namely me. A promoter by the name of Bob Price found out about my situation and offered me a gig. He had a room full of Denny Reed posters for a concert - I forget where - and my job would be to drive up Central Ave. into darkest L.A. and talk shopowners into putting these posters into their windows...and my pay would be...I forget...but it must have been very little. But being broke, I still turned it down, too little $$ for too much work. But the name Denny Reed always brings to mind that room full'a posters. And I think that since then, Bob Price has become a big shot music atty. BTW, it wasn't a complete waste, as Price had a collection of 45s, and he "loaned" me a rare Bo Diddley, I think it was "Before You Accuse Me," and it still rests in my collection. Don't tell Bob. But do say hi to Denny for me. Steve -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
