The Shoes - Too Late


On this date in 1980, The Shoes released their second single, "Too Late". It was backed by "Now And Then". Both tracks appeared on their second distributed album, Present Tense. The Zion, Illinois powerpop band had three private releases before getting a distributed release. They still record and perform and are still intact with their core of John and Jeff Murphy and Gary Klebe.
