The Four of Us

The Four of Us were from Birmingham, Michigan, just outside of Detroit.

They had two 45s on the Hideout label. The first from 1965 features “You’re Gonna be Mine”, which smoulders under a sharp fuzz riff. The flip was originally called “Batman”, then titled “Freefall” on a later pressing.

The 4 of Us’s second single, from May of ’66 was a good version of “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better” / “I Can’t Live Without Your Love”.

Minor footnote in rock history is the fact that a teenage Glenn Frey joined the band after these records.
