“Route 66,” from an Albuquerque garage March 8, 2013

Posted by Ron Warnick in Music.

Well, I’m not positive this version of Bobby Troup’s “Route 66″ was recorded in a Duke City garage. But this cover by The Monkeymen was indeed captured in low-fidelity in Albuquerque and released by a local label, QQ Records, in 1965.

The history of the band is obscure, but bits and pieces can be found here and here. The band’s name later was changed to Piggy Bank.
