The Newlyweds

Released on his Homogenized Soul imprint, "Love Walked Out" was written as an answer song to the Flamingos "Love Walked In," but its flip "The Quarrel" is what really got people's attention. Partially improvised and performed in one take, the Newlyweds (John Lewis, Sid and Bruce Grant, B.B. and Everly Nickleson) created a violent mini-drama that became something of a local novelty smash. It was the number one most requested song at KCAC, making the Newlyweds fairly well known around town. Lenaburg continued to manage the group into the mid 1960s and even took them back into the studio to record a follow up, but the recordings were shelved and have yet to surface.
