The Ballad of the Yellow Beret

Since Barry Sadler's Green Beret record was the # 1 song of the year in '66, it naturally invited parody. This one, spotted on Facebook, came from a Detroit garage band that reportedly featured Bob Segar.

  1. Yes, that is Bob Seger on lead vocals. He was originally the organist for a band called Doug Brown and the Omens, noted as 'produced and arranged by the Omens' on the label here. The b-side to this record is called "Florida Time", not sung by Bob (except harmony) but also used as the b-side of "East Side Story" by Bob Seger and the Last Heard which was his first single in his own name.
