Menlo Park (Wrong Side Of A Gun Single)

Menlo Park were an Ashland, Kentucky four piece that formed in 1979. I believe this was their only single; it was self released with a small pressing of 100-200 copies. Five more songs were released in 1981, on a 3 band comp titled, " The Recording Workshop". In 2013, Menlo Park reunited for a couple tunes, you can find it HERE. The Cheap Rewards Blog did a nice write up on these guys a few years back. If you want to read more about the band, check it out. Here's the bands Facebook page as well.

Nice! The late, great blog Little Gems wrote up & posted their song "My Heart" (played in the linked YouTube reunion video). Thanks for posting this one.
