Shortly before Danny Amis took ill, we discussed doing an Overtones’ page. He was up for the idea, but, obviously, he has more important things to contend with at the moment. If Jim Thompson and/or John Wilson stumble across this and would like to help get the ball rolling, please contact me at ToneZoneHost@gmail.com. Thank you.

In the meantime, here’s a link to Twin/Tone’s Overtones’ page, which includes MP3 samples of their three songs (“Red Checker Wagon,” “Surfer’s Holiday,” and “The Calhoun Surf”), released on their lone 45 in May 1980. These songs are available through Twin/Tone as a custom-burned CD:

Red Checker Wagon

And, here’s some recently posted footage of The Overtones live at M-80, a two-day music festival (featuring approximately twenty bands) held at the field house of the University of Minnesota, Sept. 22-23, 1979.
