GREGORY DEE & The AVANTIES - 'The Slide'/'When Will I Be Loved' (Bangar BA 00658) Nov 1964
Bangar was a short lived record label operating out of Minneapolis releasing 45s by the local talent between 1964/65. One such talent was vocalist and hammond organist Gregory Dee Maland who, with his band of outsiders, The Avanties became one of the top draws in Minneapolis, MN.
'The Slide' was their final record on the Bangar label (they also released records on Twin Town) and is a song probably about a style of dancing. So, the lyrics are pretty lame then, but the music rocks with some cool organ and a killsville guitar break.
The flip 'When Will I Be Loved' is an OK version of a Phil Everly ballad.
