THE ROONEY BROTHERS – \’Geordie\’ / \’Just A Friend\’ (Columbia 4-44393) December 1967

The Rooney Brothers were fronted by Mickey Rooney JR, the eldest son of actor Mickey Rooney and fair dues to him as he was involved with this excellent single, both sides featuring an interesting jangle sound.

\”Geordie\” is a little known psych tinged folk rocker clearly with a huge Byrds influence which is  evident on this olde English traditional folk song. The flip \”Just A Friend\” is also worthy and features a wonderful jangling guitar break.

Teddy Rooney died 02/07/16 – aged 66
Tim Rooney died 23/09/06 – aged 59

Mickey Rooney Jr. was later in the group Song that cut a s/t LP on MGM, produced by Curt Boettcher and Keith Olsen.
