Song of the Week: Nobody's Children - Don'tcha Feel Like Cryin'

Nobody's Children hailed from the Washington, DC bedroom community of Bethesda, Maryland. To the best of my knowledge they released this one and only single, a tepid cover of a Hollies song on Side-A and this self penned upbeat number, Don'tcha Feel Like Cryin', on the Flip-Side. It was released on Bullet Records in 1967 and later picked up by Buddah Records for national distribution in 1968. I know very little about these cats other than Lee Travers, one of the songwriters on this number, played guitar and sang for the band. If you told me that was Joey Ramone singing, I would have believed you.

Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!

  1. Real COOL tune, never heard before. Almost sounds like it came from "End Of The Century" session. Is that fuzz bass floating all over ?!? GREAT!!!

    1. Lots of interesting things going on in that song. The fuzz (bass?), the crisp acoustic and the horns. It's a hot mess...in a good way.
