Next on the Connecticut late 70's early 80's local scene hit parade is a great 45 from a band called October Days. I believe I saw these guys at Brothers in West Haven once and they were very enjoyable as I recall. This recording is quite representative of the cool vibes of the music that this whole scene thrived on. A bit dark, a bit rockin', sort of moody but catchy at the same time. I like both cuts and wonder where these guys ever went, if anywhere. The cover and insert material includes only what you see in the above pics and a fold out collage that includes some lyrics, but nowhere does it give any information on the band unfortunately. Both songs are credited to B. Nelson so I'll assume he is probably the guitarist/singer here (looks like quite the leaper in his day!). The recording was apparently from New Haven so I'm pretty sure they were from Connecticut and I saw them here, so there ya go...enjoy!
