    Here's one I dug up, a great garage tune buried in a live album full of all kinds of easy listening and folk songs, by Japan's Yuzo Kayama & The Launchers:

    I heard this obscure one a TV commercial recently(!). From 1963, it's obscure soul artist Chyvonne Scott with a great soul/R&B number, "I'm Moving On":

    "Burn Up" by Keith DeGroot. A galaxy of session talent on this one!

    I discovered that song just a few months ago. I thought I had already posted it! Maybe in another, similar thread.

    It's very good, although I'm not sure what they're singing about.

    “Why Can’t You Love The Boy Who Loves You?”...my favourite song when I was five!

    The Buggs record holds a special place for me as my very first album. I just bought it again from a seller on Discogs, and I’m playing and loving it right now!

    Spikedrivers-Strange Mysterious Sounds (1967)

    A local Detroit group sounds ala Jefferson Airplane but IMO better.
    A+

    The 3rd Bardo-Im Five Years Ahead of My Time is essential garage psychedelia.(1967) A+

    "Summertime Girl", by the Spanish group Los Iberos. Recorded in London, this song is pure 60s magic.

    That's a great tune too, and I guess someone posted their classic "Black is Black". Another great 60s Spanish band is Pop Tops, with soul influences:

    Beatles-influenced California band The Dovers (from my town of Santa Barbara!) put out 4 great singles during 1965-66 (none of which charted nationally) and a few of the tracks have been posted here. Here's one of my favorites, from 1965, "I Could Be Happy", a pretty folk-rock number:

    Teddy Randazzo was a singer/songwriter and sometime actor who co-wrote such tunes as Goin' Out Of My Head, Hurt So Bad and Gonna Take A Miracle among others. He spent some time in the Islands and so many of his songs were quite popular on the airwaves here. This is one of my favorites from around '63.

    I remember that one from way back as well. I could probably count on one hand the number of times I've heard it in the intervening 50 years! Maybe even zero. I think they were referred to as Los Pop Tops here.

    I'm listening to your YouTube link right now. Not bad, although I definitely prefer Bring a Little Lovin' ...

    The Poor had some underrated material including this minor hit “She’s Got the Time (She’s Got the Changes).”

    That's great!

    So is What Am I Going to Do, but it's already posted in the thread (not by me, I'd never heard of it). I got a couple more to listen to ...
