Prophet Motive

The Prophets were from Iowa. In early 1967 they went to Chicago to record for the new Twin-Spin label. The single that resulted, "Yes I Know", is one of greatest rave-ups of the era, a magnificent if blatant cop from Them's "Gloria".

The flip side of "Yes I Know" was "Sad On Me", a delightfully catchy bit of sunshine-pop harmony rock reminiscent of Chicago's New Colony Six -- not surprising, as the producer was NC6 member Ray Graffia.

This 45 constitutes the entire Prophets released oeuvre, although they allegedly recorded at least one other track (as yet unreleased), called "Twelve"
