The Hombres - Let It Out (Let It All Hang Out) -1967 US

This short-lived quartet formed in 1966 and came from Memphis, Tennessee.
They had a highly individualistic sound and are best known for "Let It Out (Let It All Hang Out)" which made No. 12 in the U.S. charts in the Autumn of 1967.Also was revived on the soundtrack of the 2005 Cameron Crowe film, "Elizabethtown".
The song's spoken intro – "I preach my dear friends, you are about to receive on John Barleycorn, nicotine and the temptations of Eve"– dates to the 1951 novelty recording "Cigareetes, Whuskey and Wild, Wild Women" by Red Ingle and His Natural Seven.
Their sole album released in 1967 on Verve (FTS-3036) and contains a cover version of "Gloria" which turns into "Eight Miles High" before reverting back to "Gloria" again.
I chose "Let It Out (Let It All Hang Out)", "Sorry 'Bout That" and "Gloria".
