A few years ago I watched a movie called, "Lovers and Other Strangers" and became completely enchanted by a couple of the songs on the soundtrack. (The movie is all fine and well, but it isn't amazing. And I am NOT about to believe that Cloris Leachman is old enough to be Anne Meara's mom, no matter what you tell me. 3 years does not a big enough difference make, stop with the lsd, people in the 70s.) (Maybe I misunderstood their relationship, because that really makes no sense.) Anyway, before I returned the movie to Orem Public Library (my favorite library for movies ever) I jotted down that the band that performed these delightful little pieces of oh-so-70's folk/pop was Country Coalition. I figured I would be able to find their stuff on a cd or digital download. I was SO WRONG. Apparently, these guys were a one-soundtrack band, and the soundtrack was never put on CD.
I set off on the grueling task of finding a copy of the record that would be in good shape. I found a copy in a record store in Toronto, of all places, and then digitized it, and promptly put the three songs on my iPod, and have been able to jam out ever since.
Today, I saw this photograph
I vow to you, my friends and readers, that if this is a real record, I will find it, and I will buy it.
