THE SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE - THAT SAME OLD FAT MAN



THE SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE - "That Same Old Fat Man" / I Feel Loved" (Smash S-2117) September 1967

"That Same Old Fat Man" is bouncy and pleasant 60s pop psych composed and recorded by Kenny Young. I'm not certain if San Francisco Earthquake were a group as such, my guess is that it was basically just Young and some studio musicians......toytown here we come!

This was the debut San Francisco Earthquake single on Smash and four more would follow over the next two years. I have found no evidence that any of them were hits so Kenny Young did very well indeed to get his songs heard via 45s.
