THE BENTLEYS - 'Now It's Gone'/'Night Time In The City' (Devlet 443/4) 1966
Mike Kuzmin's book 'Sounds From The Woods' has proved invaluable to pinpoint The Bentleys as a Stroudsburg area group of Pennsylvania. According to Mike, some members were active in another Stroudsburg group called The Devils. They had a Devlet single release in 1964 'Devil Dance'/'Just Like That'
'Now It's Gone' is a classy fuzz and tambourine shakin' garage rocker with some good vocal harmonies. The 45 proved to be a hit in Lehigh Valley although outside their home area The Bentleys probably remained unknown. The flip 'Night Time In The City' is a squaresville ballad.
