Notes: Originally issued as mono only (LPM-1001) in November 1962 on Dale’s Deltone Records. Dale then signed with Capitol, who reissued the album in March ’63 as Deltone T-1886 and in Duophonic stereo as DT-1886.
This is my cover version of a bunch of secret agent themes so I put them all together into a surf style groove and added a blues guitar solo for fun. I made the tracks one for rhythm guitar and the other two for the bass and drums.
My buddy Will found this on a VHS tape (all it had on it was two MTX songs from this same performance and the Quincy punk episode.) If it's not obvious, the method of transfer was his taking a cell phone video of the TV. This had to be 1985 or 1986, probably before Everyone's Entitled... was recorded, and it's the only document that I've seen of our Munster's theme cover, which we used to play in all our sets in the beginning. No idea where this is from, but it kind of looks like a campus room of some kind. Not sure what else to say... "enjoy"?
This video was created by our bass player Byron's neighbor some time after 1986 when the song was recorded. (He also made one for "At Gilman Street" a bit later.)
The song is off the first MTX album, "Everyone's Entitled to Their Own Opinion" and was one of a three instrumentals from Jon's old band in Boston the Sacred Cows that we used to do. (We recorded another, "Skatin' Cows" for the Night Shift album; we never recorded the third, "Hang 4," at least, not as far as I can remember.)
Thanks to Jon for preserving and sharing the file, and to Byron's neighbor, whoever and wherever you are.
