KNEE SOCKS * JOHNNY BRANTLEY AND THE IDEALS * CHECKER 979 * USA
Surprisingly, as this seems a very good first recording, the group never had another release for Chess/Checker, and equally surprising the record was released in the UK, on Pye International. Major Lance was a member of The Ideals, but it is not known if he was with the group when they released this, their first record. It is known that he was on their next two releases for the very small Chicago label: Paso.
