Flashback! Tape surfaces of Elm Street Grocery in concert

Pick up the April 26 Herald for a trip down memory lane with Elm Street Grocery.

The local band — whose members ranged in age from 13 to 17 — produced a Grammy winner, a future Wilson Pickett sideman and a saxophone player who contributed to the soundtrack of “American Beauty,” the Oscar-winning 1999 film.

A newly unearthed 1969 tape of the band in concert offers a tantalizing hint of things to come.
