The Lost Souls - Documentary Film

Please email: for further details

This film focuses on the 60s garage band, The Lost Souls of Jacksonville, Arkansas. Through interviews and research into local newspapers and personal collections, newly found photographs and memorabilia are recovered from 40 years of obscurity.

The Lost Souls were a four-piece combo: Fil Griggs on guitar and vocals, Mike Petray on lead guitar and vocals, Danny Goldman on drums, and Mike Corbin on bass. The group formed in May of 1966. The band developed a large following in the Jacksonville area and were booked into Wayne Raney’s Recording Studio in Concord, Arkansas on November of 1966 to cut their sole 45 rpm record Lost Love/My Girl on Raney’s Leopard Records.

The record received airplay on local mega watt AM station KAAY and sold well in the area. The Lost Souls also did an opening song for James Brown at Barton Colosseum in the summer of 1967, but soon after the group was no more. With their discovery and documentation in this film, both sides of the record were rereleased by Harold Ott’s record label, Psych of the South on a compilation CD titled Lost Souls: Garage and Psychedelic Rock from Arkansas 1965-1971, earning a whole new audience of fans for a record made over 40 years ago.
