Numero Group: By The Numbers

Omnibus Expanded: The 13th Amendment Band

Many of the groups we covered for Omnibus had access to one measly photo and a few hazy memories. Not true with the 13th Amendment Band. The wealth of photos, newspaper articles, flyers, and even bumper stickers was more than we received from any other artist. Sadly, Omnibus’ utilitarian design allowed for only one or two pieces from each band. Over the coming weeks we’ll be expanding upon the hardcover book with photos and other tracks that didn’t make the cut, beginning today with Baton Rouge’s favorite sons.




The 13th Amendment cut another single for Louis Whitfield’s Whit label, and several members of the group can be heard on Bobby Powell’s recordings for Whit as well

Very Cool! A friend of mine just received it in Oz and just listening to a few tracks and it’s very good.
