Ethel Meserve



Not much to be said about Ethel Meserve, they never really reached their claim to fame and a soon as we seen them surface we were waving them goodbye. I don't know how many times i played "Milton abandonment" over and over during long car rides in the Colorado winter. It seems the music can match any season and adjusts to any mood you seem to be in; But as quickly as it started the CD seems to come to a hold, 6 songs a sheer amazement. The band got their name from a store on Allen Street in downtown State College, PA run by a woman of the same name. The band in their short run released a Demo on cassette, 3 7" records, Milton Abandonment LP the bands only full length, and lastly Tree Records released a compilation "Spelling The Names" of all past releases not including Milton Abandonment. Both Spelling The Names and Milton Abandonment had a pressing of only 1500 each making them slightly hard to get a hold of. under the video i have The Milton Abandonment and Spelling The Names, while both are great records i recommend Milton Abandonment. You will be pleased
