JDIZZY's 365 # 351: Paxton Quigley's Had the Course

Paxton Quigley's Had the Course - Chad & Jeremy (1968)

Chad & Jeremy were a lucky bunch! After releasing their brilliant failure Cabbages & Kings, Columbia Records allowed them to make an equally magnificent bottom seller entitled The Ark! These discs are eons away from "A Summer Song", but they are also two of the best albums you've never heard. Today's track, from the latter, is all about the generation gap. It is told in such dayglow colors that the listener is swept away and never made to feel like they are getting a history lesson. If Panic At the Disco were still the band that made Pretty Odd!, this would have been a perfect cover choice.
