Troy Dodds :: The Real Thing (1966)

The first thing that hits with this joint is El Camino Records gorgeous label design; the hills are more than likely the San Bruno mountains as seen while heading north on US-101 into San Francisco. El Camino being the historic north-south route that travels the California coast.

Troy Dodds is a mystery; the San Francisco singer released a half dozen 45s between 1962-1966, then seemingly disappeared. Perhaps he was drafted? If you’re still around, Troy, it would be great to hear from you.

‘The Real Thing’ is Mr Dodds’ final release, and he certainly went out . . .
