The Footprints

From: Montreal, QC, Canada

Often forgotten about, The Footprints released a handful of singles in the 1960s on the Columbia and Capitol labels. Their best single was “Never Say Die”/”Mama Rand’s,” which according to Billboard magazine was rush-released by Capitol the week before Christmas 1967. “Never Say Die” has nice organ and guitar and is said to have foreshadowed the bubblegum genre that exploded the following year with the likes of The Ohio Express, The Archies, The Lemon Pipers, etc. The flip-side is the even better “Mama Rand’s,” with it’s groovy organ and falsetto vocals.
