The T-Bones were an instrumental studio rock group produced by Joe Saraceno for Liberty Records that became famous during the mid 1960s. Not to be confused with the same-named British band formed by Gary Farr, The T-Bones of "Alka-Seltzer" fame were actually two groups, with the first made up of session musicians from The Wrecking Crew who recorded the group's hit songs as well as early albums. The other more public group consisted of brothers Dan and Judd Hamilton, Joe Frank Carollo, Tommy Reynolds, and Gene Pello who toured and appeared on record covers and TV. Although none of them played on any of The T-Bones early recordings, they recorded the group's final album, "Everyone's Gone To The Moon (And Other Trips)" (1966). Dan Hamilton (June 1, 1946 - December 23, 1994), Carollo, and Reynolds later went on to form the 1970s trio, Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds.
The T-Bones debuted on the Pop/Rock charts in 1965 with the gastrointestinal smash, "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)," a Top 5 pop rocker based on a catchy Alka-Seltzer commercial jingle. Two minor hits followed in 1966, "Sippin' 'N Chippin'" (from a Nabisco commercial jingle) and "Underwater," before the group finally disbanded.
