  1. I could get you a label picture of Cured if you wish. We have a copy up here.

  2. Danny Coane of Montpelier, VT here. I play with Billy Bratcher in The Starline Rhythm Boys (VT) for the past 21 yrs. I was in The Cured for a short period of time (fall, 1965). Three of the members (Billy Parker, bass/Brian Cerutti, organ/Craig McNeer, drums) were from Montpelier and I played bass in a five-piece group (that went to seven - 2 girl singers) called The Jesters (1963-65). I was at the Univ of VT in 1965 where I met Brian Bull (guitar/keys) and Brad Sumner (gtr) who came into The Cured. The Cured 45 was cut after I left the group and was done on the Allen Assoc label in CT where Bull was from. B-side "Summer's Gone" was an original by Bull. I have this 45. I also have a 45 by The Beachcombers, a well-known, very popular Montpelier VT band in the 60's. A group from neighborning Barre VT, The V.I.P's, was a 4-piece who had members who went on to be famous, one in particular being Eugene "Gene" Leroy Preston, dummer, who became a founder and major songwriter for Asleep at the Wheel. I don't know if they ever cut a 45, but a great Central VT group in the 60's.

    1. Hey I'm also from Montpelier, Vermont. I'm curious about the cured, can I get a recording of summers gone? Only the a-side is on youtube

  3. Hey Beatlesbootlegs: Danny Coane of Montpelier here - still live here. You see my post above about The Cured and other bands. Who are you? Where in Montpelier. I am sending Jason a clip of the Cured 45, which will include B-side "Summer's Gone". Will try to get this done in March or sometime before summer (and before The Summer's Gone!!).

  4. Hey Danny steve Hadd here. Class of 67 MHS. Used to watch and dance to Beachcomers at the Loft . Can you convert that Breachcomers record to mp3? I still have a radio show . 60 's music. Please email me. dj @ oldies time machine .com
