Brownstone

Take a listen to this record ("Coming Together" and the flip "Surrender").


Any guesses on the year? Go ahead, guess.
If you were like me, I was thinking late 1960s, with the Byrdsy guitar and the folky psych vibe.

I was so wrong.

The group Brownstone recorded this ridiculously catchy albeit head scratcher in (wait for it) 1987.

Yeah, I know.  Crazy, huh?


I'm sure someone will enlighten me on the history of this single.  Recorded at Reel Art, I contacted the folks at Aardvark, where it was mastered, and nary a word.  Only other hints are J. Casados and R. Valdez.
