THE MUSIC EXPLOSION - 'Sunshine Games' / 'Can't Stop Now' (Laurie LR 3400) Aug 1967
'Sunshine Games' was a sizable hit for The Music Explosion and I can see why because it's a catchy bubblegum tune. The song was compiled in the 80s on Mindrocker Volume 5.
The flip 'Can't Stop Now' credited to hitmakers Kasenetz-Katz & Chiprut has some fuzz, brass and organ (farfisa?) and remains uncomped. Hmmn, did The Music Explosion actually play on this record or was it studio musicians??
They were from Mansfield, Ohio by the way and when singer Jamie Lyons went out on his own ,the band eventually morphed into The Crazy Elephant.
