In part five of our look at White Whale records - we look at 2 different groups. The first-a male/female duo that was the launching pad for singer/songwriter Warren Zevon. His time with White Whale was short-but he had a modest hit and wrote songs for other artists on the label before moving solo. This early period also saw many unreleased demos of which you'll hear.
Our second group evolved out of a Doo Wop outfit. The group evolved and moved down to San Francisco and eventually LA-where they're home became a hangout for some of the creme dela creme of the music industry of the time-among them - one Neil Young. The band became known as the Rockets-released an album on White Whale - and well, you'll just have to listen to hear the rest of the story.
