December's Children - Muncie

Muncie was quite a little band mecca in the 60's. With Ball State university and a number of clubs to play, many bands flourished . Thus we welcome December's Children.

Band members included:
Greg Hood  - organ
Steve Justin - guitar
Lance Paulson - bass /sax
Jim Parrott - drums
J Michael Henderson - guitar

I know that Greg was involved with the "Jades" and JM Henderson was in many bands including the British Walkers and has a great solo career, not to mention he performed at a couple of the WNAP Raft Races that we attended in our long forgotten youth.

As research goes, I found this little teaser about a 45 from the band, playing on a "Tally" jukebox. of course my first instinct says "I must have this". fast forward a couple of years later, and the 45 arrives in my mailbox. So let's hear this long lost nugget.

Keep on Runnin'

99 and a Half

Both are covers (or remakes) of the popular tunes of the day, but they both stand up pretty well today.

May thanks of course to the band that did the work, and J Michael for the band pic, and to all my readers who keep me going!

Hello Tim, I always wondered if December's Children/Muncie ever recorded. Your sight has confirmed. Also do you have or need a scan of The Jades 45 label on Denim for your sight?...Eric
