Reach Out Of The Darkness...

...or is it Reach Out IN The Darkness (the actual vocals being sung)?



Whichever it is, it's a cool song from sometime, a long time ago, apparently.

1. '68, if I recall correctly. Too sleepy to look it up.

I'm pretty sure it was "Reach Out IN The Darkness".

I was just a young boy then. Always liked the vocals and Hammond organ on the chorus.

On Edit: Huh. The album cover really does say, "Reach Out OF The Darkness". Never saw the LP before. Just the 45, when I was browsing the rack. But it's been fifty years.

3. Yep, I'm pretty sure that's what they sang.

Surprised to see that's not what got printed.

4. Jim Post wrote that song....

I met Jim Post years ago when he lived in Galena, Illinois about 10 years ago. He did an excellent Mark Twain as well at a small theater there that brought tourists in.

Friends of ours who had a superb restaurant there called the Perry Street Brasserie, would have Jim come in and entertain diners on special ocassions. His ex-wife Janet was an Author. Both went to the same church as our friends. Jim has since left Galena after his divorce from Janet.
