Well Ricky James Matthews had this group in 1965 bouncing around Toronto, and it seems he couldn't keep guitar players. Late winter '65, Bassman Bruce Palmer sees Neil Young on the street with his guitar case, and suggests he join up. Neil, the struggling folk singer agrees, and history is made. Rick James gets a deal with Motown, and 16 tracks supposedly were done in Feb. '66. This was to have been the first single from a scheduled album. Ricky gets caught AWOL from the Navy, busted, and the record deal falls apart. I guess then more history is made. Neil and Bruce sell the Mynah's equipment, and head west looking for a couple of other folkies, Steve Stills and Richie Furay. More history is made. Ricky James Matthews did OK for himself too. He became a super freak, and a superstar. Enjoy a little bit of music history. On Motown, from Hitsville USA --Ricky James, Neil Young,and Bruce Palmer. The Mynah Birds.
