November 8, 2017 Records of the Day

Many think the Heavy Metal Psychedelic band, Blue Cheer, took their name from the famous soap detergent, but it actually referred to a type of LSD. However, the Cascades were named for the dish-washing detergent of the same name. In 1963 they were all over top-40 radio with “(Listen to the) Rhythm of the (Falling) Rain.” Released on Valiant Records, a copy of the 45 is worth up to $20.00. But look for the Cascades’ single, “Cinderella.” Released on RCA in 1963, a copy with picture sleeve is worth up to $200.00 today.
