Psych of the South presents a CD from The Playboys of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. This group recorded a 45 in 1962 under the name the Magnificent Seven for Vee-Eight records. They produced a rockin' group original in Memphis named "Baby Doll" along with the frat rock classic "Ooh Poo Pah Doo." This CD gathers the Magnificent Seven 45 along with a live recording made in 1963 with the group pounding out a blistering set of R&B and Frat numbers at a gig in Monticello, Arkansas at A&M college, captured on tape by Pine Bluff DJ and recording enthusiast Charlie Okle. This is a rare glimpse into the live set of a frat rock group before Beatlemania struck. The sound has been described as a punk rock Charlie Rich. The live set features Tom Payton aka Tommy Riggs on vocals. Hear this raw and unfiltered performance for the first time here!

CD includes an 8 page booklet with tons of photos and the history of the group. Included on the CD are 15 songs listed below.
