THE SEARCH - 'Climate' / 'Mr Custer' (In-Sound 404) 1967
I've been meaning to write about The Search for years but somehow kept getting side tracked but today is the day for some Search action. According to several sources they hailed from San Diego, California but apart from that, information is at a premium.
"Climate" is an organ dominated garage swinger with a tempo shifting beat, quite fascinating and ultimately rewarding after several plays. It was written by Jim and Paul Mannino who were likely brothers. It was compiled on "Highs In The Mid Sixties - Volume 3" back in the early 80s
The other side is a reworking of the novelty tune "Mr Custer" originally released by Larry Verne in 1960. Find it on "Fuzz, Flaykes & Shakes - Volume 2"
The Search also released another single in June 1967 on Era Records but this record is not as interesting to me but still worth seeking out. "Too Young" / "Everybody's Searchin" have not troubled the compilers.
