SCREAMS (PAPER DOLLS)

Paper dolls is a powerpop classic and definitely gets my vote as one of the more original covers for a single. I'm not sure what if any airplay this may have received ? It surely deserved it , I never heard the album , I'll have to try to find it . Really not much info out there about these guys, but wikipedia had a little . Screams was a late 70s Power pop band from the Champaign, Illinois region, who produced one album titled Screams. I have to assume that this single was taken from that album ? The album, Screams, was released in 1979 on the Infinity Records label . Members of Screams were David Adams (lead vocals), Steven Jones (bass guitar, vocals), John Siegel (guitar, vocals), Brad Steakley (drums)
Since the demise of the band, singer David Adams has achieved considerable success with his web-based business, Adams Custom Slide Shows, located at http://www.adamscustomslideshows.com/This band backed up Van Halen on their first album tour.
