I first heard the song Everytime at a Coop records in Peoria in 1993. I asked the clerk who was playing and he said "It's The Samples".
I said '"A sample of what?"
He laughed and said "No, the band is called The Samples".
After feeling a bit stupid I went over to where the tape section was and picked up the album The Last Drag.
As soon as I left the store it was already playing in my car. It stayed in there for weeks.
I listen to it once in awhile now but back then every song sounded like perfection. Now I wish I had bought the cd, which is impossible to track down.
I thought this album would go gold and be the popular music of that summer but it just never got mainstream. I guess when you are a small town band from Colorado it never works that way.
But they have been pretty successful and have a cult following.
This song always makes me think of the setting sun, cows in the fields, a tractor harvesting crops, and a general evening on a farm. You'll understand why when you here it:
Have a great weekend!
