I recall seeing the Cryan' Shames play at a 4th of July outdoor picnic/cookout party at my grandmother's country club. It's must have been in the late '60's and I would have been 8 or 9 years old. The band was set up outside behind the clubhouse, near the river - where the noise would not disturb the "adults." A local (Berwyn, IL?) band by the name The Second Story was the opening act. I think my brother was old enough to "buy" the 45 of Sugar & Spice (Ben Franklin's Almanac as B side). I just bought this LP today at an estate sale a block from my house. With the warmer weather, we are getting very close to Garage Sale Season, and I am getting Vinyl Fever. On the back of the record, there is a list of the band numbers, with their nicknames, and ages.
