Dred Scott (Believe You All E.P.)

(By request, a re-up originally posted 7/4/2010, new scans and rips
 Dred Scott was a Los Angeles four piece formed in 1979 by Journalist Greg Burk. There's not much info out there on these guys. In all I believe they had two singles, and possibly an LP(but I'm not sure),before they disbanded around 1985. Every time I look at this cover it reminds me of Shemp, from the Three Stooges.

Line Up -

Greg Burk - Vocals
Chris August - Bass And Vocals
Dave Van Huesen - Guitar
Jeff Hands - Drums

Red Spot Records 1979

1. I Believe You All
2. Honest Boy
3. What A World
4. Rocker

Thanks for posting this! I found a vinyl copy of this EP years ago here in Chicago for like 50 cents but I have since misplaced it (?!). "Shemp on the cover"- LOL!! The guy on the cover is actually Dred Scott, and the picture is circa 1850 or so- he was involved in a pivotal case during the days of slavery, the infamous "Dred Scott Decision" of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1857 that basically said that people of African ancestry- slave or free- could never become citizens of the U.S. (!?!). Mr. Scott tried to sue for his freedom from slavery, and was ruled against because if he was not considered a citizen then he could not sue in federal court. Go here for more info if you're interested:
