The Merry-Go-Round were a Los Angeles based pop band, best known for producing singer/songwriter Emitt Rhodes and featuring Joel Larson on drums Gary Kato on lead guitar, Bill Rinehart on bass. The band released only one full length album, The Merry-Go-Round (album) (1967). "Live", the first single from their album, was a top 10 smash at both KHJ in Los Angeles and KGB in San Diego, although it failed to crack the top 50 on the national charts. "Live" was covered by The Bangles in on their 1984 album All Over the Place and "Time Will Show The Wiser" was recorded by Fairport Convention on their debut album in 1968, a song still played regularly by Fairport at their Cropredy Festival.
This CD contains the full collection of very nice tunes you all should hear, and a very informative booklet (24 pages) with the full story of this unfortunately forgotten band.
