A good album band, a great singles band.  This list is what I managed to hang on to from their classic era, from approx. ’79 to ’87.  For videos of most of these singles, the “Monumental As Anything” (VHS) can’t be beat.  I have lots more stuff than this for the Mentals, but this seemed like a nice list.  “If You Leave me, Can I Come Too?” is a great 45 by them that I do not own (also “Too Many Times”).  I just never found 45’s of these titles, even on a visit to Australia in ’87.

I have also enjoyed the solo works from members of MAA – Dog Trumpet, The Stetsons, Martin Plaza, Greedy Smith – all good stuff.
