Satisfy'n Sunday (The Underground)


If the Mamas and the Papas were to go into the recording studio with the Irish group Them, this would be the result - 'Satisfy'n Sunday' by The Underground (not to be confused with the Velvet kind). Despite the muddy production values, this is actually very good, and obviously influenced by the Mamas and the Papas vocal arrangements. The singers here might not be up to the standard of that group, but they aren't too far off.

This was released in November 1966 and never went anywhere, which is a shame. With a production tweak here and there, and better marketing and distribution, this could have gone national Top 40. As it was, they had to settle for local chart placings such as #18 in Gary, Indiana, and #20 in Acron, Ohio. In 1967 the Underground released a follow-up single 'Get Him Out Of Your Mind', which also flopped and then they appear to have disbanded.
