ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The years go by and the Tempests settle for their local reputation. It allows them to get hired , in 1965, as the head band of a local night club called Mapleleaf New York on Ridge road, the biggest in town. They play there 4 nights a week and then their ego blows up a little because of the long line ups in front of the club but the sacred flame is quite shaky after two years. It seams to them it’s too much like a dull job : same place, same songs, same crowd one night after the other.

We are in 1968. Jim Collins’ eyes can’t stand all the smoke in the air at the Maple Leaf and he has do put drops in to protect them. One night he put too much in and the liquid is running down his cheeks. When the Tempests end up on the stage, the UV light make his face look green where the drops leaked. The next night, the band rename themselves to Casper & Ghosts, from the sweet ghost in the comic book invented in 19339, and later the TV show in 1945. The members of the band, then formed with Dave Casperson (guitar and vocals), Lee Tatlock (guitare and vocals), Jim Collins (drums), Berry Clemens (base and vocals) each put the drops in every night before the shows on their faces, their arms, their hands and thanks to the UV lights they look green. Just another proof that hard rock bands didn’t invent anything on that matter. They keep playing the Maple Leaf, their songs, the ones from the Top 40, “The Hump” by the Invictas or “What’d I Say” by Johnny B Goode.

They split up when Gloria, Tatlock’s wife, asks him to quit. Of course the club has Go-Go dancers for the mood and they share their locker with them, which doesn’t particularly please their wives.
