At our premiere party, I made reference to the fact that there are only two known TV appearances from 1960s NC bands that still exist. Both are from the syndicated TV show Village Square, which taped at WBTV Studios in 1966 and 1967. One of the videos is the Paragons performing "Abba", and the other is the Statesville-based (with ties to Charlotte) 18th Edition. "When You Love Someone" is part of two singles that the band recorded in Statesville in 1967. The group would also record their only full-length LP as The New Mix later that year, which was released by United Artists in 1968.
After the band broke up, Henry Steele would join Pat Walters in The Good Bad & The Ugly (or GBU, as they were also known), while Rob Thorne would eventually join Walters in the Spongetones. A special note should also go out to David Brown, who recently passed away. We miss you, David. Here's the clip. Enjoy,
