The Marathons - Peanut Butter

This record definitely falls into he category nuttiness. Grinded nuttiness, fat and greasy nuttiness, sticky nuttiness. The Marathons are actually the Vibrations of the Watusi fame. The Arvee label wanted to rush out this nuttiness and had originally intended it to be for the Olympics. Unfortunately they were on tour, so the Vibrations got a crack at it. However, since they were signed to Chess, a name change was needed. Or maybe they just didn't want people to know that this nuttiness was theirs. A sticky situation indeed.
