heard on the wire

No, not Mel and Kim

To find brothers and/or sisters in the same band isn’t unusual, but a cousin combo is rare indeed. And when those cousins make one of the all-time greatest records of all time, it’s rarer still.

But such was the case with Mel Hardin and Tim McPherson, cousins from Holly Springs, Mississippi, who travelled to Chicago in the late sixties to seek fame and fortune as Mel and Tim.

They deserved both, for this alone from 1972.
