Beacon Street Union

From: Boston, MA, USA

Beacon Street UnionThis band was named after Beacon Street, a main drag in their hometown of Boston, MA. They were a part of the heavily promoted MGM “Bosstown Sound” which was manufactured in late 1967 in an effort to rival the “San Francisco Sound” out west. Members of the group included Paul Tartachny (guitar, vocals), Wayne Ulaky (bass, vocals), Richard Weissberg (drums), Robert Rhodes (keyboards, brass), John Lincoln Wright (vocals, percussion). Most songs were composed by Ulaky and Wright.

They released two LPs and four singles from 1967-69. The first LP, ‘The Eyes Of The Beacon Street Union’, is very original and includes the stand out tracks ‘My Love Is’ and ‘Sadie Said No’. These songs contain great vocal harmony and biting guitar work.

Artist information sources include: The book, ‘Fuzz, Acid and Flowers Revisited’ by Vernon Joynson and an article by William Ruhlmann at All Music Guide.
