Little Rock record label releases 1963 garage band recording

Feb 22, 2017

The Little Rock-based Psych of the South record label recently released "Baby Doll," a CD featuring music by a 1960s band called the Playboys, which was a group of teenagers from Pine Bluff.  The group performed regularly in the region around Pine Bluff in the early 1960s.  Under the name The Magnificent Seven, the group released a 45 rpm single in 1962 on the Vee-Eight record label.  An unreleased, live recording of the band from 1963 was discovered, and the new CD features that recording and both sides of the 45 rpm record.
