Musical Interlude: Black Souls (1967)

The Arrows weren't exactly household names in the 60's, and the soundtrack to Dennis Hopper's 1967 motorcycle gang drama, "The Glory Stompers", isn't exactly readily available, either. I'm not even sure this song, "Black Souls", was even worthy of the charts.

The track, however, is now better known because of the narration by one of the film's stars, future radio & cartoon icon Casey Kasem, who speaks in rhyme, which I assume is what his character in the film, Mouth, did.

2 years later, Casey voiced the Cattanooga Cats' drummer, Groovy, who also spoke in rhyme. You'd think Casey could've written a book of poetry in his spare time.......
