Winners of Teenage Fair, Battle of the Bands (1966 Seattle)

One of the results of winning the 1966 Teen Fair was a "recording contract".  What it really was was time in the studio that we didn't have to pay for.  The studio included us on a record release I believe it was called "The Northwest Greatest Hits" vol. 11.

AKA "The Famous Plums Roll Band" in their later days.  They are on Jerden Records "History of NW Rock Vol II".   The liner notes are quite glowing about The plums, especially given the context of NW music at the time.

Mike Boyd had a Zim Gar p-bass knock-off, upon which was hand-painted "VOX" in big, bold letters.  I'm not sure he fooled anyone...

Dan and Tim went on to Juggernaut and Vizzion, among others.
