Sixties music replayed in book

November 2, 2006

Albany -- A Georgia author remembers the old times, a more musical time at Radium Springs. He shares the stories in a new book.

Greg Haynes wrote "The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" about music in the 60s when bands like the Tams, The Swinging Medallions, and Pieces of Eight thrilled audiences around the country. He signed copies in Albany tonight.

Haynes was a concert promoter at the old Radium Springs Casino.

The book includes several stories about events in Albany, and some locals are even pictured in the book.

"It was back during a time when it was live entertainment. Musicians had real instruments and it wasn't all synthesized sound. It was just incredible. It was an atmosphere between these bands and their audience," said book author Greg Haynes.

"The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" is 600 pages and includes photographs and three Cds of music from the era.
