Artist: Target
LP: Target
Song: "You Need a Woman"
[ listen ]

Not to be confused with the Kroger-owned superstore of the same name and similar logo, this Target was one of the most popular rock bands in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1970s. They released two LPs on A&M Records; this self-titled one from 1976 was the first. You can read a bit about Target and what became of bassist Tommy Cathey in a 2011 article from the State Gazette here.

"You Need a Woman" whisks me back to memories of awkward moments spent with my mother in the early '90s in Provo, Utah, right after I came out to the family.
