OK, yesterday, I mentioned that a group called the Exports had the number ten song on the WLS Silver Dollar Survey in Chicago this date. I didn't recognize the song nor did I know anything about the group, so did a little research.
Of course, I started on You Tube so i could hear the song. Turns out, I had heard the song before and it is an excellent car instrumental. It starts with some talk like you'd hear at a car drive-in restaurant (perhaps where Steve Miller got the "Somebody give me a cheeseburger" on their "Living in the USA" song.
There was no information in Wikipedia or on You Tube. But I did find some background on the Official Site Blog by Carl Huffman, who said he also had a really hard time finding out anything about this group.
The group was formed in 1963 in Glenwood, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago located near the Indiana line. This was their only hit and sadly, only played around the Midwest with very little radio-play on the coasts. The group modeled themselves after the Ventures.
