Numero Group: By The Numbers

WTNG Staff Meeting: Greenflow

WTNG, Numero’s single-LP homage to the regional radio station comps of yore, features 11 unique acts from across North America. With so many new faces (responsible for so many new flavors), we thought we should introduce some of the folks who will be making their Numero debut via our Record Store Day release (4/21).

Greenflow was an agile soul group that delivered the lion’s share of their performances on military bases from the Aleutian Islands to Wuerzburg, Germany, along with several strategic points in between. Bandleader A.J. Greene was an ex-marine who far preferred entertaining personnel to active duty. “After carrying a gun, it was nice to carry a trombone,” he recently remarked from his home in Pasadena, California. Although Greenflow’s roster fluctuated over the years, prominent on this recording was his younger sister Eleanora, whose previous gig with the Superbs yielded a few significant titles on Dore Records in the mid-1960s.

Greenflow’s contribution to WTNG, “I Got’Cha,” is one of the compilation’s catchiest offerings; the chorus is sung no fewer than a dozen times a day at Numero Headquarters. We feel Greenflow makes a fine addition to the WTNG roster, and we hope you will let their infectious melodies nest inside your brain like they’ve done in ours.

P.S. “I Got’Cha!”
