15. MERRELL and the XILE'S - Tomorrow's Girl


MERRELL & the XILE'S - 'Tomorrow's Girl'/'When I Get Home' (Glenn 426) April 1967

This was The Exiles final 45 in the Spring of 1967 after which Merrell Fankhauser would disband the group and return as Fapardokly with a new line-up.
Merrell & the Exiles or as shown on this label as Xile's enjoyed some degree of local popularity, even performing on Dick Clark's American Bandstand and 'Tomorrow's Girl' certainly entertains with it's raga rock rhythms, fuzz and lyrics about a girl with a fondness of hash.

"She is a girl who has everybody's needs
While she sits and smokes her $20 weed"

'Tomorrow's Girl' and the flip 'When I Get Home' were recorded at Audio Arts Studio, Hollywood during March 1967 with the following line-up:

Merrell Fankhauser (vocals/guitar)
Mark Thompson (organ)
Larry Willey (bass)
Randy Wimer (drums)

    album. Thankfully "Tomorrow's Girl"
    is included in the Fapardokly album
