the Back Pages

Austintown, 1968-9

This band has the unique distinction of recording a theme song for their high school "yearbook on record". Entitled "The Groovy Sound of Fitch", after Fitch High School in Austintown (suburban Youngstown), it's about a minute long and drops the Ford Auto "better ideas" ad theme into the song. The Back Pages were a real band and active in the local teen clubs in '68/9.
