Song ID: The Syndicate of Sound, “Brown Paper Bag” (1970)


San Jose’s Syndicate of Sound had three charting singles, each one a killer. Their first two were the classic strum-a-thon “Little Girl” and “Rumors” in 1966, while their third one, “Brown Paper Bag” came out on Neil Bogart’s Buddah label during the tail end of his bubblegum experiment in 1970 (1910 Fruitgum Co, Ohio Express, etc). And what did they prepare for the preteen crowd? A loveable Creedence-tinged stomper about hard drinking.
