This is a short film shot in 1967 when the band October Country was seeking a record deal. We were approached by Denis Hoffman who later that year backed Steven Spielberg in his 1st film called "Amblin" and asked if he could follow us around and film footage of us going to and from gigs. The life of a cover band who eventually got originals given to us by Michael Lloyd. We were working pretty steadly at that time. We worked with The Drifters, The Coasters, The Standells, The Sons of Champlin (Bill Champlin's band. And after we got signed, The Buffalo Spingfield, The Iron Butterfly, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Rondstat, The Turtles (great bunch of guys), Gary Puckett and The Union Gap, The YoungBloods, The Boxtops, and a whole bunch of other folks. We DID get signed because of this film. It was shown to Len Levy, then President of Epic Records/New York. Epic Records was then part of CBS Records so we recorded the album "October Country" at CBS Records, Columbia Square at Sunset and Gower in Hollywood, California. About the same time we asked to perform the music for Steven Spielberg's "Amblin". Caryle, our female lead singer sang it.
