Ron Greeves & Curt Labelle - Greeves/Labelle (1982)
In sharp contrast to our last set of 7" singles, we're going to focus on this new addition to the CCPS archive, which CollectorsFrenzy astutely notes has "nothing remotely Punk Rock or KBD about it".
So then why did we grab this? Well, only partly because of the soft, soft look in the eyes of the gentleman on the left of this cover (is that Ron Greeves or Curt Labelle? We're hoping it's Ron. He looks like more of a Ron than a Curt). We picked this up because (a) it's on Living Room Records and (b) it's got Doug Wong's name associated with it. Also, (c) we have a problem with buying records that may or may not be worth the vinyl they're pressed on.
This one certainly isn't very KBD - the A-side sounds more like, uh, Air Supply. The B-side is more like the Raspberries, which kind of redeems this. Unfortunately, we don't know anything about either of these gentlemen or what exactly the story behind this record is.
But, hey, don't expect that to stop us from posting the download.
