THE FUJIYAMA PAJAMA (locale?)

1967 advertisement for the band's namesake.
Closing out 2017 is yet another buried gem from the fruitful New England Recording Studios in Providence. From somewhere in Rhode Island or neighboring Massachusetts, these teens laid down a Rascals cover backed with the shamefully unreleased moody original, “Be My Girl.’ It's minor key heaven as the singer tries to sweet-talk his lady out of her silk Fujiyama Pajamas (or if he's merely admiring her from afar, perhaps he's just trying to get her into fancy nightwear for the evening). Not much more to say here except enjoy the tunes and hope Santa brings us some info this year!

Band members, relatives and old friends: Please come forward. Get in touch!
