Don Grady - The Children Of St. Monica (Don Grady) Canterbury C 501 - 1967

De San Diego, California, Don Agrati era ya un precoz artista cuando, ya de niño, andaba bailando y actuando en series de televisión y en películas para la pantalla grande, sobre todo westerns.

Ya a los 19 años y con el nombre de Don Grady, publicaba para el sello Checker su primer single en 1963. Durante los siguientes cuatro años, editaría hasta un total de siete de ellos para Orange Empire (1), Capitol (2), Challenge (1) y Canterbury (2). Tuvo tiempo además para participar en el primer single de The Palace Guard, junto a Emitt Rhodes, y para fundar el inolvidable grupo The Yellow Balloon junto a Gary Zekley, editando con ellos un LP y tres singles. Todo ello, sin olvidarse de su papel de actor, principalmente en una famosa serie de televisión llamada "My Three Sons".

Tras publicar un LP para Elektra en 1973, ya con su nombre real, Don Agrati ha permanecido conectado desde entonces a diversas actividades relacionadas con la música y todavía sigue tocando en directo y grabando.

"The Children Of St. Monica" tiene una encantadora melodía en las estrofas y un estribillo un tanto psico-hebrío que le da una dimensión especial. Na, na, na, na, na...

"The Children Of St. Monica" has a charming melody on the verses and a psyco-drunken chorus which gives a special dimension. Na, na, na, na, na...
