A 1977 Photo of Silver Laughter in Carroll, Iowa at The County Seat

Silver Laughter 1977 - Ken, Jon, Paul and Mick

Silver Laughter 1977 – Ken, Jon, Paul and Mick

I have been receiving updates from Garage Hangover which did a piece on The Contents Are:. I tried to get them to do one of Silver Laughter, but the site is dedicated to bands that were together in the ’60’s. Since our records were released in the ’70’s they said we didn’t qualify. Maybe now that photos from that period have been uncovered, I will try and make another run at them.

As I look at the updates from Garage Hangover, I get a bit nostalgic when I see black and white photos of young kids who got together and formed bands probably while still in high school. And then I see photos of the older versions of those youngsters and observe how they have aged… or died. It makes me sad.

Anyway, with that said, here is a 1977 picture that Art took in Carroll, Iowa at the County Seat nightclub around the time we were working on “Sailing On Fantasies”. I already posted several of us sitting around this same table, but here is yet another outtake from that session.
