This a true collaborative affair, Jason sent a photo of the band back in 2007. Didn't ring a bell, but put it in the "to do" file. John Hiatt mentions that he was in a band - Roosevelt & the 7C's - BINGO! Although John wasn't in the band that recorded, he put me in touch with Dennis, who was 16 (!) at the time of the 1st 45. Dennis sent a 45 to John via someone else. and we have some groovin' R&B sides here.

And although it's not in my 60's focus, here is another 45 from the team.

The 7 C's were from Muncie save Hubie, who hailed from Seymour. Hubie went on to play on the John Cougar Mellencamp demos. The band existed from '65 to 1973.
Has to be lots of stories about this band. Chime in!!!!!
