The Joyful Heirs  “I Found a Treasure”  A custom pressing from Cincinnati circa late sixties (?)  I’ll let you take in the wonderful faces, hairstyles and clothes of this “group”  Who was listening to this when the radio was playing The Stones, Dylan, The Beatles, Janis, The Doors, Creedence, The Band, Motown, James Brown, Otis Redding … you get my point.  Anyway, Tony is the one who found this “treasure”!

A nice addition to my collection of “Jennifer” records for my best girl (gifted by my best bud LPCL Tony)!  Bobby Sherman sings this one!  Metromedia Records.  Remember him?  Maybe it was Jennifer after “Julie, Do You Love Me?” said no?  I was a fan of “Here Come the Brides” on TV as a kid too.
