The Association - Song of the Week

The Association were a Los Angeles, California based band. In a time when many studio session musicians, such as the legendary Wrecking Crew, played all the instruments and only the singers actually participated in the recording session, The Association were the exception. They played their instruments on their recording sessions and sang all their own lead vocals and vocal harmonies.

This week the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing The Association with a clip of their live performance on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Along Comes Mary is preceded by a fairly long and humourous introduction by one of the band. It's our Song of the Week.
