KB-870A - Heavy Rock   (No Publ.)
KB-870B - Dreamer Girl   (No Publ.)
MINNESOTA CENTENNIAL 870
Minneapolis, MN

(As described on ebay)

"Tough to classify Private Jazz issue featuring several members of Augie Garcia's rock and roll band from the early 1950's.  Dreamer Boy is a cool vocal, with a nice trumpet break but backed with quiet "doo-wah"s and piano.  On the flip side, Heavy Rock is an instrumental backed with a "jivier" (or "peppier") doo-wah/wop sound and rhythmic hand clapping/snapping to classy trumpet, saxophone, bass, and drum beats.  Pressed at Kay Bank studios in Mpls, MN as a part of the Minnesota Centenial Celebration of 1958."
