the Estates


Cincinnati, 1968

The Estates produced another mystery QCA pressing.

The songs are nice teen garage sound with pop/commecial sensibilities. The songwriter is Rodger Hall, who, according to a blurb in Billboard magazine, played in, ot managed, the band Image Of Society. The Image of Society and the Estates are probably the same band, or have some common members. Hall was also part of H&S Enterprises.

The label name is Famond, which seems like a combination of names. According to the 1970 Cashbox record directory, Famond was located in Cincinnati. The Billboard article mentioned above suggested there is another Famond label 45, by Don Patrick, but there's no other info found on that.
