The Amberjacks △ “Hey Eriq!” (1966)

It seems that 1966 was the year for garage-rock, even up in the the remote Nassau County hamlet of Baldwin, NY. For it was there that a little-known band by the name of The Amberjacks came into existence back in the mid ’60s. Short lived like many bands of the day, these young lads put out one lone single in 1966, “Hey Eriq!” b/w “Blue Jaunte,” on the Migliore label before fading away into obscurity. While little is known about The Amberjacks today, it can certainly be said that “Hey Eriq!” contains one of the finest vocal refrains in rock music.
