the 31st of February
The 31st of February: Produced by S. Alaimo and B. Shapiro, 1968 yielded one of Florida,s greatest rock gems, Sandcastles, an incredible, haunting masterpiece filled with the sound of seagulls, surf and a hypnotic organ riff. The trio utilized the great talents of Benny Latimore and Bobby Puccetti. The orignal members went on to perform and record with The Allman Brothers Band, the band Cowboy and Boz Scaggs.
The Last Words
The Last Words: Hit the pop Rock scene with their first recording, Can’t Stop Loving You. The excitement and impact that this had lead to the release of the debut self-titled album, The Last Words. They produce, influenced by Cream and Vanilla Fudge, their sounds are strictly their own, and stand out with the most original and inventive young groups of the day with their great musicianship and ground breaking arrangements.
The Birdwatchers: Early 1966, began to gain their reputation as Miami’s state-of-the-art local band. The group had numerous hit records in the Florida area, including Girl I Got News For You, reaching number one, as well as I’m Gonna Love You Anyway. This song peaked at #2. These 16 tracks were originally released as 45 singles and are now available in one collection on CD and Digital download.
Mercy: Had their first break when their original song called Love Can Make You Happy was placed in the film Fireball Jungle. Then several silver-eared DJs picked up on the group’s work and, as they say, the rest is history.
Becen and The Shells
Becen and The Shells: Becen’s group appeared as one of the opening acts at the James Brown concert in the summer of 1970. Becen toured from 1970 to 1975, performing with artists such as: Phil Collins, Genesis, The Bee Gees, The Eagles, and many, many more. Stone decided that the sound was a little ahead of its time. The completed album was shelved and seemed to have fallen through the cracks until Stone reached into his archives to release Becen’s album thirty-two years later in its original form.
