ERNIE HARWELL R.I.P.
A TRIBUTE TO A DETROIT ICON
Here's a rare LP from 1968, released by the National Bank Of Detroit entitled "The Year Of The Tiger '68" celebrating the Detroit Tigers 1968 American League Championship with commentary by Ernie Harwell and Ray Lane.
Here's a warning--it's got a few scratches and skips here and there (it's pressed on super CHEAP vinyl and each side is over 25 minutes long so the grooves are crammed and noisy) but it's an interesting listen AND it includes the song, "Go Get 'Em Tigers" and lots of Denny McLain too. I assume this LP was only available locally but if anyone reading this has a cleaner one, post it or send it to me and I'll transfer it.
