—Fred Quan, banjoist for The Goldwaters, 1964
One of the greatest and yet failed attempt to lure people to vote for a political candidate. The idea was to create a band that would follow the political trail for Barry Goldwater and his run for the golden chair, The Presidency. This being the brainchild of Buford & Mark Clark Bates
Needless to say, the group and the candidate were major flops. The record itself, like politics is barely listenable. The group was never heard from again but in 1996 were offered another stint to help a candidate, they were to be renamed The Doles.
