Where it all went down.
Charlie singing his tune, Higher Degree.
Mike singing his originals, Got to be Bad, Everything Will be Alright.
John – Drums and backup vocals.
We all played horns of some kind.
Recorded at Jack Leahy’s Funky Features near Haight St.
I remember driving around in my Dodge van on the way to play in some dive bar with the Albert Otis Blues Band groovin’ along with Higher Degree and Got to be Bad on the cassette deck circa 1979.
Hey Charlie, Michael Galvin here, I was Mike’s Yale roommate. Spent this morning registering for the Yale ’71 reunion book which has a ‘recollections’ page and for me, Mike and musicians like you were a big part of my life. Still miss him. /Michael, now in Oakland CA
I remember you doing “higher Degree” at Minnie’s. Cool song, great soul singing.
