The Fugitives - Freeway
This is another one that I played the heck out of as a kid. It's a rockin' little instrumental number from 1960 with some great sax licks in it. I could not find much information about The Fugitives, but evidently this track was first released on the SIMS Records label prior to the Arvee issue.
The Arvee Label was formed in 1959 as a subsidiary of the High Fidelity Recording Company. The "Arvee" name was derived from Richard Vaughn, the company president's initials, "R.V." The output of the label was popular music and rhythm and blues.
