Item ID: 388740

Second in the "Lost Jams" series this is compilation of demos and other recordings from the archives of lead singer Dave Bingham. The recordings on Thump & Twang begin with a November 1967 studio session wherein new member Mike McKenna's original "The Blues Fell This Morning" is cut. Following Glynn Bell's departure the Ducklings continued recording as a four piece, still fronted by singer Dave Bingham and backed by original drummer Robin Boers who is said to have added a second bass drum ala Ginger Baker at this time. Aside from two takes of Bo Diddley's You Can't Judge A Book (one being from a TV appearance), all tracks are written by Bingham and/or McKenna. Theyre all solid early 1968 vintage blues rock pointing toward the future Mainline group and sometimes with a bit of a Byrds' country vibe. Apparently this was not the kind of hit single music Yorkville had been hoping for however, and after the falling out with their label the Ugly Ducklings broke up.
