LHI 1201 (original, promo) USA, Dec. 1967

In a way, this band made only one single – under the name “A Handful” that is.

The group was exactly same as “The Kitchen Cinq”, a psychedelic garage rock band from Amarillo, TX. They had a famous producer, Lee Hazlewood, who also owned the label (Lee Hazlewood Industries).

Jim Parker and John Stark joined Them in 1971 (at least for their final album “Them In Reality”). Stark later recorded with Ry Cooder, Billy Preston, The Blues Image and others.

List price:  Not listed in Goldmine catalog. The Kitchen Cinq’s LHI singles are $12 for Near Mint (no info on promos)
