The Classmen - Any Old Time (1967)
The Classmen formed in Kansas City, Missouri in the early ’60s for a high-school talent show. The band was a family affair, with a 14-year-old Drew Dimmel on bass and precocious 10-year-old Doug on drums. Eventually, their father, Charles became their manager. They played in clubs, mostly as opening group for the more famous “Newbeats”. At first they recorded at Columbia Studios in Nashville, later they joined Pearce Records. The superb garage song “Any Old Time” was released as a B-side to “Julie” in September, 1967 by Pearce.
