Description
What does Dave Hester, of the reality TV show "Storage Wars" and front man for the Loving Spoonful, John Sebastian have in common? Both may have been part of a lost piece of rock history. Hester makes a living by bidding on abandoned storage units. This past summer Hester purchased 4 units from an abandoned facility in northern California. The contents of one locker contained some vintage 70s leather clothing and several boxes of audio cassettes. He left the cassettes with his clean up crew. This is where Dave's famous "YUUUUP!" byline may be a big "DOH" instead. The cassettes were mostly old blues artist but one may be a piece of history. The locker was originally rented to a M. Jos. Reesing in 1973. Several people have listened to the contents of "Cassette 15" including John Sebastian who stated .... "I know it's the real deal. I did work on those sessions and remember the tune." Mr. Hester was unavailable for comments.

Name the album and you get a cookie!

I love the LSP challenge - it brings out this kind of creativity.

I can fave this -
because I had nothing to do with how this became what it is. The genius is with Jack for hearing a song where I had thrown out a backing track some years ago - and Patrick for being - well - Patrick.

Had it with the keyboard foot pedal bass line. Thrown with the many tracks of guitars. The keys are spot-on. Glad Hester got the raw end of the deal. That guy's such an a-hole.

My senior year of high school (1983) I was determined to be sullen and moody as much as possible (not easy for me). I carried around a copy of "No One Here Gets Out Alive" and listened to the Doors non-stop. (My favorite album is The Soft Parade, btw).

This sounds so authentic- I'm taking the story you told at face value!
