Lost Northwest Classics: Merrilee & The Turnabouts – “Party Song”


Long before Merrilee Rush’s big hit, this 1965 debut record from the Seattle artist was released by Ru-Ro Records & has an R&B feel to it with a garage-rock guitar solo. “Party Song” is the B-side of the intended hit “It’s Alright”. The picture shown is on the rear side of the 45 sleeve.  Merrilee still lives in the rural environs near Seattle, on a farm once owned by her grandfather & breeds Old English Sheepdogs.  She still performs on occasion with some of the package “retro-rock” tours.
