Roger Binninghof: "Over My Head"
Well, here I was, thinking about shutting down this blog. Just when I was sure that I wanted to call it quits, I went and found a record that I just had to get up here.
This is the kind of record that It's Great Shakes was made for, terrific song and almost no presence at all on the net. I only found mention of "Over My Head" on a couple Minaret discography listings and, even there, they misspelled the artist's name.
I posted this song on Facebook and Jeff Lemlich commented to tell me that Mr. Binninghof was a student at Vanderbilt University, who had a hand in several Minaret releases. Thank you to Jeff for that info.
Anyway, "Over My Head" is a garagey winner and another reminder of just how many great records are out there waiting to be discovered.
