The Riddles - It's One Thing To Say

The Riddles are yet another Chicago area band getting a spin here at On The Flip-Side. Elmhurst to be exact. This is their one only output. Originally released on Quill Records in February of 1967, Mercury picked the record up for national distribution, releasing it two months later. The Riddles were Patrick Harper, Lee Adams, Weston Dobson, and Ronald Fricano. As is so often the case, we're spinning the Flip-Side, an original composition by the singer and guitarist, called It's One Thing To Say. The A-Side was an uninspired cover of The Searchers' Sweets For My Sweet.
Promo card of the band was lifted from the good folk at Garage Hangover.

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


  1. Fantastic song, first heard this done by Plan 9 on their New Rose LP back in '84.

    1. I had never heard that version before. Thanks for hipping me to it.

  2. Astounding and promising debut release and top notch production from a minor label. Remains quality song-writing. Hard to believe nothing else came from them.
