A decade before he was topping the country charts, Joe Stampley fronted one of the deep south's most legendary and rockin' '60s combos, the Uniques. Once signed to Shreveport, Louisiana-based Paula Records, the Uniques made waves nationally on their very first release, "Not Too Long Ago." That pop classic (faithfully/recently covered by Nick Lowe) is just one of many highlights of their '66 debut LP, Uniquely Yours. According to the master tape, this record was originally going to be tagged The Uniques in Action; a shelved album title that could not have been more apt.
