THE OTHER HALF were a 1966 obscure raw Garage band from Pottstown, Pennsylvania
comprised of members from The Half Tribe ...

The Other Half members were: "Bob Collett" (vocals), "Andrea Inganni" (vocals), "Don Karr" (bass keys on "Farfisa Compact Organ", "Fender Bass"), "John Hawkins" (bass), "Dominick Puccio" (guitar, "Fender Bass"), "Rex Lamb" (fuzz guitar), "Cranleigh Sammis" (drums) ...The Other Half" lasted two years: 1966-1967 producing just one self financed and promoted album in 1966. One of the legendary "garage rock" Lp's from the sixties, and...oh by the way, we'll pay top cash price or trade for an original 'stock' copy, if anyone has a lead?...

The Other Half album was made in the Spring of 1966, recorded on the top floor of the Oasis Hotel in Camden NJ (just across the river from Philadelphia) in a small for-hire recording studio.

"The Other Half" had a solid Northeastern sound and a little more Garage Punk edge than their regional competition ...Their eponymous album ("The Other Half" on 7/2 Records label HS 1-2, 100 copies) included two cool originals and the rest were Rhythm'n'Blues and British Invasion covers performed with a tough edge and in a crude manner, on the rowdy side. (Them's Gloria, "Rolling Stones"' Satisfaction, "Time Is On My Side", "As Tears Go By", "The Outsiders", "Time Won't Let Me", "The Animals" 'Talkin' 'Bout You' ...etc.)

A second album was planned, to be recorded Spring of 1967, but one of the group members was expelled from The Hill School, a prep school where the group was attending, just days before the recording was to take place
