Flamin' Oh's 1981 :

Robert Wilkinson: Guitar and Vocals/ Bob Meide: Percussion /Jody Ray: Bass Guitar /Joseph Behrend: Piano, Organ, and Vocals


When Flamingo released their EP they were contacted by the 50's group The Flamingos and were told "change the name or we sue". So the band dropped the "G" and became known as Flamin' Oh's. By this time the band was being called the Oh's anyway by all the regulars at the Longhorn.
The band released two albums on the Fat City Records label. Their debut LP was self-titled Flamin' Oh's. This became known as the GREEN album to the growing numbers of local followers. The band started playing to packed audiences at the Cabooze and Duffy's.
The Flamin' Oh's were one of the earliest bands to make music videos. Chuck Statler directed two videos including I Remember Romance from the first LP that had Joseph playing his keyboard atop a giant scrap steel pile. The video ran on a new television network dedicated to music, MTV.
The other video, Stop from the second LP Oh !, saw the members as classical musicians all decked out in tuxedos. Robert strummed a string harp, Bobby pounded on a kettle drum, Jody bowed a cello, and Joseph played a grand piano.
The band's busy touring schedule took them around the U.S. and was capped off with a festival performance in Bogata, Columbia.
Robert decided to cool it for a while after the last string of Oh's shows at the Union Bar during the summer of '87.

I love this album. I found it used at some point in my college years -- I never thought I'd find it digitized.

thanks for the memories and the share
