Montrose Men

The Montrose Men were a short-lived local Houston group, and at
least on this rare recording they were Very influenced
by The Village People and the disco sounds of the day.
Below are every mention of them from the publication This Week in Texas (TWT),
spanning 9/21/79 to 3/21/80. The flip side was an instrumental version.


Members were: Bo Meade, Calvin, Charles Gabehart and Greg Davis
I've not seen any mention of Calvin's last name, if you can
provide that please let me know

It appears at this point Calvin left the group

below, apparently they changed their name to Neon...wonder why?
Though, Richard Askin did have a record label by that name


"Sunshine and Me", oddly, has a female lead, LISTEN

"Bounty Song" is a male solo, is the "Mutiny on the Bounty" story. LISTEN

I notice the 45s were dated 1978, but supposedly they
changed their name in 1980...wonder what the real story is?
Looks like this 45 pre-dated the Montrose Men...

"M Richard Askin" who produced
the group and wrote their songs.
