Yet Another Conspiracy Theory

:: Creedence Medley ::

:: McArthur Park Medley ::

Yet another night club act who had no business documenting their musical indiscretions on vinyl, yet here it is: The Chandler Conspiracy. The time: The early 70s. The material: Medleys of current day hits - some with Christian overtones. The look: Sideburns (except for the lovely ladies of course). The sound: Well, you decide.

For some reason, I couldn't gather much information about The Chandler Conspiracy except for the ever so informative liner notes which explain that they are "eight", that's right, "eight" people. They then go on to say that they are "eight" show people. And from what I can gather, none of them are named Chandler nor is any explanation for the name of the band given. My copy happens to be autographed by a Ron Chandler, but is that really band leader Ron Di Palma using his "stage name"? Oh, it's too much to ponder considering it's overall value, which is nothing. The guitar player's name is Vidal "Beaver" Bermudez - ok that's something.

Anyway they played the Raleigh Hotel in the Catskills, The Sheraton Inn in Ft. Myers, FL, The Blue Max in Chicago, The Dunes in Riverside, CA, The Brat Cellar in Sioux City, IA (hi Tony!), Pzazz in Burlington, IA and of course the Golden Nugget in Vegas.That's a lot more touring than I've ever done, so I'll shut up now.

Here's an except from the liner notes (by Earle H. Corry): "What kind of show is it? It's a musical show; it's a dance show, it's a comedy show; it's a serious show; it's an entertaining show; it's a show you'll never forget. (Especially if you are one of the "volunteers".)"

Anyone want to volunteer to listen to this shit? Do you like listening to the sound of tap dancing? To a Creedence song?

Ah ha ha! Gimme more off this album, that was hilarious.

That "tap dancing" could have been some guy banging on a cardboard box for all we know.

good stuff but a long while back you put up songs by "The Styler" a 60's Chinese group
any way you could re-up?

Oh, good Lord, this is a lot funnier than anything I'm likely to hear very soon. The tapping is just too much for me to handle discreetly at work, but I don't care.

You are, if I am not mistaken, required by law to post more of this glorious music.

I'm looking for my dad.. his name is larry I think but I've never met him.. supposedly he was a friend of this band and he traveled with them .. He got my mom knocked up in Sioux City when they played at the brat cellar and then he bailed. If anyone familiar with this band knows a way I can get in touch with any of the members to ask them about him, please let me know. I'd like to meet him. Thanks!
