Because the masses have been clamoring for solo work by Steve Simels, comrades!
Here's the a-side, which is a remake of The Byrds' anti-war classic from Fifth Dimension.
And here's the b-side, which is a cover of a great song by friend of PowerPop Peter Spencer, done as a cross between the early Byrds and "Street Fighting Man."
I should add that both of those are now available for streaming/purchase at Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music and various other digital platforms to be announced.
I should also add that the picture sleeve photo was taken by friend of PowerPop Capt. Al, and the art direction is by a certain Shady Dame (who's working too cheap, I'll tell you that for free.)
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the musical credits are:
Me -- lead vocals and bass
Joe Benoit -- harmony vocals and all other instruments
Me -- lead vocals, guitars, keyboards
Joe Benoit -- guitars
Allan Weissman -- bass
David Hawxwell -- harmony vocals, 12-string guitar, Nashville guitar
Glenn Leeds -- outro keyboards
Glen Robert Allen -- drums
And a big tip of the Simels chapeau to one and all who supported me in this folly.
