I have begun to post songs on Youtube. The first is a very obscure song from 1973 which could pass for a Beatles' song c.1966-1967. The song is called Coming Home/To Mrs. Jones Garden by the Buffalo, NY group called 'Weekend'. I do know for sure that there are music buffs on this site, and despite the group not being from the area, i am certain many would enjoy this song. It is a two part song, similar to Paul McCartney's "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey". The first part is a nice ballad which sounds like Paul or Emmit Rhodes, then it breaks into one of the catchiest songs ever- similar to'Hitchin a Ride' as might be sung by The Tremeloes. I would have no idea how to get the link here, but i will e mail it to Don, and maybe he can do it. Meanwhile, you can go to Youtube and do a search for the song and it will come up, posted by Jules2213.

The 2nd half is very similar to Uncle Albert, right down to the 2/4. Singer has an excellent voice.
