It's March 1966, and the Emeralds are hot!
Hailing from Greenwood, Indiana, the boys, from top of ladder:
Pat Gwynn - Drums
Dale Young (Center Grove High School) - organ
Dave Church (far left) - rhythm guitar
Roger Craig - bass guitar
Dan Weaver (far right) - lead guitar
The Emeralds placed 1st in the Johnson County Fair competition,
1st in the Greenwood Battle of the Bands,
and 10th in Young America band battle at the State fair.
They even appeared on local TV showing their chops.
Showing off 5 of the 800 copies pressed on the Honey label (Bloomington? Confirmation?) the Emeralds were seemingly off to bigger things.
Hear that first 45 now!
Like Father, Like Son
As it seems all bands change personnel, Dave Wilson replaced Dale Young on organ. And the Boroughed Tyme were born. I've also seen it as:
Shown here heading to Chicago and the TeenAge World's Fair, and a recording session at Recordings Unlimited.
Then of course I lose track of them. What happened to that session, and/or the tapes?
What other bands did the boys go to? What happened to their Fan Club (that's right, they had a fan club!) ?
The 60's hoosier band fans want to know!
