THE SHILLINGS - Just Like A Girl (Dayton Band Co.)

Fab Moody Ohio Garage LamentThe flipside of the equally great "Yesterdays Dawn" [get an .wma here] kicks some serious ass. In a moody way, that is. They had another way great 45 on the same label in the same year, "Forgive Me My Love"/ "I Call For Her", the latter you can find on 'Strange Worlds #2', which makes an quite impressve output of four excellent sides without any fillers. This very song is pretty sparse, shifts into higher gear as we roll along and features a cool guitar break. Cool backup singing all the way.
Some additional info from Rick Dryden from the 'Ohio Sounds' blog:
Leader of the Shillings was Rick Bashore, who also produced their records. I think the lead singer was Ward Newman, both from Fairview HS 1967. Don't remember the other members. Rick Bashore wrote "Yesterday's Dawn" (along with L.Pierce, don't know him.) Rick also wrote the B side "Just-Like-A-Girl." They released this 45 in 1966 on the Dayton Band Company label.
Now, according to Wickham, this is their first platter, and both 45s are from '67. Need some confirmation here.
