Top Drawer - Solid Oak (1969 us, fetching heavy psych blues)

Top Drawer hailed from the rural center of the United States, coming right out of Kentucky. There aren’t many facts to be said about the band, considering they were around back in 1969-1970 and they only have one album that I am aware of. Their one and only album, titled “Solid Oak”, was recorded back in 1969 at Fultz Recording Studio over in Kentucky, and if you have one of these original records in mint condition, it could sell for well over a hundred dollars. The album is constantly being sought out due to it’s rarity.

1. Song Of A Sinner (Steve Geary) - 5:42
2. What Happened Before They Took The People Away (Steve Geary) - 5:19
3. Middle Class America (Alan Berry) - 4:55
4. Time Passes Much Too Quickly (Steve Geary) - 3:30
5. Messed Up (Ron Linn) - 3:46
6. Baker’s Boogie (John Baker) - 3:39
7. What’s In Store (Steve Geary) - 4:26
8. Sweet Memories (Alan Berry) - 4:56
9. Lies (Steve Geary) - 5:10

  2. Yes!!I have this album in poor quality and I've been looking for it a long time in FLAC. A big thanks for this outstanding album!

  3. Efxaristo poly mario nase kalla

  4. This is fantastic Marios,can now get rid of these pesky m.p.3's.
    Pretty rare album,thanks.

  5. I'm listening that album and I'm in heaven. Very good stuff,my ears are very,very happy!!!

  6. I listened TD sample here for the first time ever. Seems good musicians but a little softer voice for this category. Should listen other tracks to complete my view Thanks.

  7. great post Marios. i've been looking for this ever since hearing 'song of a sinner' on "forge your own chains." thank you.

  8. Hello there! I lovee TOP DRAWER!!! I'm just wondering if there's any similar band or song that is playing some smooth but hard rock as in Song of a Sinner song. Thanks guys!

  9. Sounds best with the Good Book, a bottle of sweet wine and a 6 paper joint.

  10. TOP DRAWER recorded their LP in Kentucky however they were actually from Mansfield Ohio. How they ended up recording a record in Fairdale Kentucky (a small town near Louisville) I have yet to find out.

  11. On Hunters series, its a great tune Ive not heard before

  12. I've discovered this through the Hunters too...chills went down my spine. Song of a sinner could have been written and recorded yesterday. Would have been apt for many other TV series too, like True Detective, Tin Star or Leftovers

  13. My dad was the drummer in this band

  14. I have all the original records from my dad who passed away he was the drummer

  15. you have to be pleased that they are offering illegal downloads of his music....?

  16. Sometimes that is the only way these things get heard.

  17. ...or you could buy the releases!?

  18. oh well, if that justifies hundreds of illegal uploads, tell that to the courts when you are on the stand for copyright infringement! I don't think it'll work, ha.

  19. There is no copyright infringement - the downloads are samples for prospective purchasers, or for educational purposes.
