The Shades (Hello Mr. Johnson Single)

For the hell of it; I took a look in my old Volumes book to see what it had to say about this record. It claimed this band was from Vancouver, and, appeared on The Vancouver Complication Comp.I guess you can't believe everything you read. I think the Shades were from NJ, but I'm not 100% sure, they played mostly around The Trenton, and Philadelphia area. This may have been their only record but once again, I'm not certain. If you know anything please feel free to fill in the blanks. I found this link that should clear things up a bit, CHECK IT OUT !

Yes, from Trenton, NJ. Other sources place them in Philadelphia, PA, but I guess only because they played there so frequently. A side was comped on Shake Some Action #4.

They were from Trenton, I thought they were but I wasn,t sure. I found a link I'm going to add to the post. One of these days I'm going to have to pick up the shake some action series. I think I have one of them, but I'm not sure which one. Thanks Pavarotten, wrong Shades,great post though. I added your site to my blogroll,thanks. I can think of 4 or five bands off the top of my head alone that called themselves the Shades. I plan on posting a record by one of those Shades in the near future. Thanks for the comments.
