Disciples Of Sound

Not sure but probably not Ohio, 1967/8

We need to explain the given locale. There is a 45 by a band named the Disciples Of Sound on the Finch label. Over the years, it has been assumed, incorrectly, that the Finch label from Cincinnati was the label for this record, with the Rite pressing being another factor indicating a Queen City origin.

We asked John Finch years ago and he had no knowledge about this record, his name is not on the record, and no paperwork for it was found in his estate. So, guaranteed, the Finch label for this record is not the Cincinnati Finch, completely different label logo (all the John Finch 45s from the time have a distinct logo and a different Rite pressing account).

So, where is band from? As of now, we don't know. The record itself is pretty neat, a crude version of the Hendrix classic with minimal instrumentation and marching band drum beat. The otherside is keyboard less version of the Animals mega hit. Circumstantial evidence suggests they were within a couple hundred miles of Cincinnati, more likely southwest than north. 

So, someone out there knows these guys and can provide the real story, right?
