The Sold Americans - Back To The Pyramids

ARTICLE: VERMONTERS FIGHT MALL, SETTLE FOR LIFESTYLE CENTER
By Lee Kessler


Here's the song that goes with the story. Todd Lockwood, who also founded The Brautigan Library, wrote Back To The Pyramids for Williston Citizens For Responsible Growth, and he recorded and produced the track at his studio, White Crow Audio in Burlington.

The ad hoc group dubbed "The Sold Americans" consisted of the Burlington band The Chrome Cowboys, who were at that time: Bill Mullins, guitar; Mark Ransom, bass; Robert Crenshaw, drums / lead vocal; and, on this session, yours truly on keyboards.

We're still hoping to offer the accompanying video, which was produced by Allan Nicholls.

Cued Up: WNCS

WNCS 96.7 FM Logo, 1977Here at the LowNoise Records Audio Archives you will find a small and growing collection of sound clips going back to the 1960's, when my passionate involvement with audio production and radio broadcasting began.

One period, my years at a then-new radio station, WNCS in Montpelier, Vermont in the late '70s produced a string of memorable short productions, due chiefly to the imaginative and creative talents of others I was fortunate enough to work with there.

I have preserved and restored a number of early WNCS spots, ID's and promos, and it has been the compelling wish to make these tracks available to anyone who would appreciate them that has driven me establish the LowNoise Record Player.

In time there will be more special content, from WNCS and elsewhere. For now, I hope you enjoy the offerings. Thanks for listening.
