Kingtones: The Practice 1963

In 1963, in preparation for recording the Kingtones 3rd record "Twins," a practice was called to learn the song. The band gathered in the basement of Phil Roberts's house. They started with several familiar songs to warm up Pete Mervenne's vocal cords. Track 6 on this CD is Phil singing "Twins" to the group so they could learn the song.
Phil had a cheap reel to reel tape recorder with a cheap microphone and decided to record the session. Needless to say, the quality of the recordings is not very good. On the bright side, this CD made from that reel to reel tape, is one of the only recordings ever made, of Pete Mervenne & the Kingtones doing top 40 tunes, with this much vocal clarity.
