I'm pleased to announce that we have a new 'BOTB' participant.
This nice gentleman is named Shady Del Knight and he's the administrator of the blog 'Shady Dell Music & Memories'. So, please be sure to visit his 'Battle Of The Bands' installment and vote there prior to May 7th. Thanks!
|EUGENE MARTONE VS. JACK BUTLER|
In my previous 'BOTB' blog bit, I used a very famous song that has been recorded by every singer and their two-legged uncle. One recording of it even won 'Record Of The Year' at the 1966 Grammy Awards.
This time, I'm going in the opposite direction. I'm using a song that was never a hit for anyone, and it may be unfamiliar to many of you voters. The song is titled 'LONG HARD CLIMB'. It was written by Ron Davies and released on his second album 'U.F.O.'. Let's hear the original...

In 1973, Maria Muldaur released a cover version on her eponymous debut album.
