The DQ of Amherst College

D.Q. Adrift (1962)

From the liner notes:

The Amherst College D.Q. thanks you for your act of charity. You have paid 1/500th of the bill for the shell which sank, shortly after the cover picture was taken. Our insurance just wouldn’t cover water buffalo stampedes.

With tattersal vests dry, (hand-woven by Eleanor Roosevelt) the group will resume its role as one of the finest singing organizations in the East. Recent ports of call for the D.Q. have been the Sarah Lawrence Song Fest, (which they won two years in a row), Wellesley, Cornell, Skidmore, St. Lawrence, Smith, Pembroke, Mt. Holyoke and the Belchertown Townhouse. The D.Q. has traveled to Europe and Bermuda with a USO tour and has entertained alumni groups and conventions from Milwaukee to Miami, not to mention its frequent appearances on television in the Boston area. Despite its 19 wandering feet, the D.Q. still finds time to sing at its home stand, Amherst College, and has kept alive its tradition, born in the 20′s, of delighting Amherst audiences.

Recorded in the Flintlock Room of the Lord Jeffery Inn, Amherst, Massachusetts
