At one time, there was an Orpheus exhibit at the Wocester Historical Museum (it may have been rotated out by now). But, anyway, this is the text of the exhibit, which included photos and the ability to listen to songs.

I HAD NO IDEA

...that the 1960s hit song "Can't Find The Time To Tell You" was recorded by Worcester artists who used to "jam" in Congress Alley, off Pleasant Street.

"Orpheus", a rock group that took its name from the mythical god of music and poetry, burst onto the national scene in the late 1960s with "Can't Find The Time To Tell You." The group's music ranged from heavy modern rock to "something close to easy listening."

Three members of "Orpheus" were from Worcester: Bruce Anold, John Eric Gulliksen, and Jack McKennes. They named one of their songs "Congress Alley" for the place in Worcester where they did their improvising. In a 1968 Worcester Telegram article, "Orpheus" was described as representing the first real success of a Worcester-rooted rock group.
