The Human Beinz – Flower Grave (Ohio, US, 1967)
The Human Beingz actually began in 1964, when the original members – Mel Pachuta, Gary Coates, Dick Belley and Ting Markulin – all from the Youngstown, Ohio area,ended up in the same group known as “The Premiers.” Formed in 1965 as The Human Beingz, they debuted on Gateway Records in February 1966 with a version of ‘Gloria’, but The Shadows Of Knight had just beaten them to the punch. During the next year or so, subsequent singles for small labels and an exciting live show helped establish the band’s reputation.They signed them to Capitol in mid-’67 and they are best remembered for their smash cover of ’63 Isley Bothers’ “Nobody but me”. I choose a big personal fave from their ’67 first album, the catatonic gem “Flower Grave”. Hope you’ ll like it!
Nobody But Me was released in September of that year
