The Buckett City Distortion Rackett

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by iamoldschool, Mar 22, 2009.

  1. The guitarist and lead singer in the band I'm currently with (going on 3 years now) was an original member of a Tuscon, AZ based band called "The Buckett City Distortion Rackett". I had known about this since we started playing together and I knew that they recorded a song that actually charted in '67. The song was called "I Lied" and met with some success in selected markets, but I had never heard it until recently. He didn't even have a copy of it. So I put Google in charge and wound up finding it on a compilation album called "Funky Flakes and Shakes, VOL 6". I was actually able to record it from an archived internet-based radio broadcast so I could at least hear it. The guitarist was stoked when I told him a recorded version was still available and he ordered the album. To the point, I was goofing around on Google again today and found it posted on YOUTUBE - just the song, no video, but hey, it WAS 1967! We have incorporated the song into our set list as it fits our format (50's - 70's rock and bebop), so take a listen and let me know what you think! This is the original version, not us!


    I gotta admit, it's pretty cool playing with someone who actually recorded back in the day. My guitarist/singer is the one singing backup and playing lead guitar on the recording.
