Yes! "Midnight Confessions" is excellent!

most all their LPs are good, prolly could consider it power pop before power pop was formalized. The name began as a studio group Barri/Sloan concept (of course) via Dunhill as a cash in on folk rock in '65/66. After one failed attempt of taking a "real" band and pretending they were the Grassroots, Sloan/Barri found The 13th Floor and installed them as the Grassroots for the GR second LP, so of course they were the band that hit with the Rokes' "Let's Live For Today." They split in like '75, but I believe there is some form of the Grassroots on a State Fair tour every summer... They were a great band, I've always loved 'em!!! HOWEVER, for the life of me I can NEVER find super clean copies of GR LPs!

Yep, great song. It's always reminded me of the Partridge Family, but with some added grit--and I mean that as a compliment. Tarantino also gets a lot of mileage from it for "Jackie Brown." On the soundtrack, it appears between the Delfonics and Minnie Riperton. Nice!
