Start exploring…

The Man Child Singers – The lone 45 by Man Child Singers is a musical snapshot of an anti-nuclear family, worthy of a framing for the staircase wall. Sue, Merl Jr., and Tony Saunders experienced the Summer Of Love firsthand through their pre-Grateful Dead father Merl Saunders. Their big “break” came when the San Francisco Giants commissioned Merl Sr. to write and record a commercial jingle. Team Saunders was enlisted to do the vocal work. The drafting continued with Big Time Buck White, a political musical written by Merl Sr. and family friend Ed Lewis, which featured both the Saunders and Lewis kids. The resulting Sumertone 45, “Mighty Whitey” b/w “Right On,” is a completely sincere sign-of-the-times by kids too hip by half.

Altyrone Deno Brown – Altyrone Deno Brown’s childhood home was both harem and commune, with anywhere from eight to ten women sharing a bed and paycheck with Arrow Brown, his father. Acting as manager and agent for his son, Bandit Records proprietor Brown hit the pavement, looking to exploit the burgeoning talent around him. Deno spent nights singing Sam Cooke to patrons of Chicago’s south side club circuit. Instead of school, Deno auditioned and rehearsed.
