Clinton - Midnight in New York

Clinton –Falling Behind/Midnight in New York –Shotfire EU 694210 (1976 US)

With members from Uniontown and Masontown (PA), this record seems to have been Clinton’s sole outing. Recorded at Audio Innovators in Pittsburgh, this great double sider was released in August 1976. I am only featuring the rousing Proto Punk scorcher Midnight in New York as the A side is in even worse condition, although it’s a great Hard Rock number. Anyhow the B side is loud and crunchin’ a bit like Streak with some Under My Wheels era Alice Cooper licks. The band was comprised of Lee Hayes (vocals), Tom Skelton and Bill Osniak on guitars, Bill Rankin (drums) and songwriter/bassist Jim Tait.

Guys, if any of you see this –please get in touch. I need more information and an upgrade!
