~~~ about the name ~~~

The name B  Side refers to the “flip-side” of a record.  Many artists, notably Hank Williams, Booker T & the MG’s, CCR, Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, The Righteous Brothers and the Beatles, released single (45′s) where the B-sides were as good as the A-side and became hits in their own right.

Often B-sides are more alternative artist tracks that were not chosen by producers and labels to be hits, but are more personal favorites or memorable outakes…

By supporting the very regional artists, food and beverage producers that inspire us, we hope to build a lasting B Side tradition in Oneonta.
