THE NIGHT CRAWLERS - YOU SAY


THE NIGHT CRAWLERS - 'You Say'/'Night Crawlin' (Maad Records IMP-51166) May 1966

During their brief existence The Night Crawlers from Owatonna, Minnesota, released one 45 on the small Maad Records label. Approximately 1000 copies were made over two pressings. The original release is the green and white label with 'Joel Recordings of Mankato, Minnesota' on the label. My copy is the second, black label Columbia pressing.   

'You Say' is a commercial folk rocker with 12 string jangle and flashes of tambourine. It's no surprise that Night Crawler Marc Reigel confirmed that they were Byrds fans in a recent interview over on garagebands.com

The flip 'Night Crawlin' is an instrumental composed in the studio on the spot and taped as a live jam.

Despite a huge following and regular gigs The Night Crawlers disbanded in late 1967 when some members graduated from Carleton College and moved on. The Night Crawlers have set up their own Facebook page with in depth details of their history and many cool gig photographs from 1966/67. Go here

Line-up:
Marc Reigel (piano and organ)
Mark Headington (bass)
Mike Jines (guitar)
Bill Redeker (drums)
Barry Gillespie (vocals)

  2. Great post.

    I believe Bill Redeker became an television reporter for ABC News.
