The Blackwood Apology were a Minnesota group consisting of Ron Beckman (bass), Dennis Craswell (drums-vocal), Tom Husting (guitar-vocal), Dennis Libby (piano-vocal), Dale Menton (guitar-vocal) and Bruce Pedalty (organ-vocal). Greg Maland also contributed additional organ and pipe organ effects.

Craswell, Libby, and Maland had been members of the Minnesota garage group The Castaways who had the Garage hit “Liar, Liar” in 1965 ( listen for the tongue-in-cheek reminder in “Recess With Mrs. Grim”).
