Brand X - two is better than one

 This 45 has been on the radar for quite some time. A couple of Motown hit covers, probably 1968. Jason had a hit with a member that claimed they attended "Penn High School", South Bend, IN, but we don't have any names. 

Stop in the Name of Love
Come On Home

Showed up on Ebay a few times, then seemed to dry up.

While searching for Brand X, I happened upon a 1966 band of no relation.

Don Douglas
Rob Swaynie
Jack Verstijnen
Mike Couchman

Ron was in quite a few mid 60's Indianapolis based bands including:
Clarence Brown Memorial String Band
The Urge
Waterproof Candle
and many more.
Alas, this Brand X did not make the later recordings.
Another mystery to be solved!

If you notice the writers credit you will see Grebb....probably Marty Grebb from the Buckinghams and Cetera....probably Pete from CTA.
Rob Swyanie from the other Brand X from Indy later played in Pure Funk.
