    Nice choice! I’ve had that album since the early 70s.

    We have several threads like this one, notably "Obscure songs from the '60s that you love to share with people" ...

    Anyway, from the completely-obscure-but-totally-gorgeous department -

    Sometimes, a great instrumental isn't so great when a vocal version appears. Thankfully, that wasn't the case here.

    Written by Jackie de Shannon, Splendor in the Grass was also done by The Boys, who were in fact all girls:

    So much good stuff here. This is one of my faves. Not exactly obscure, but encapsulates '60s pop and soul like no other.

    And Marilyn McCoo. Woof.

    RE the Sundowners- I have a couple singles by them, great songs "Blue Green Eyes" and "Sunny Day People", and they are unfortunately not produced by Bones Howe.

    Well of course, How can you top a decade that starts off with "Only The Lonely" & "The Twist" then ends with "Journey to The Center of the Mind" & "Hot Smoke and Sassafras"?

    Too many favourites, I'll have to think of a "forgotten" track

    It says "produced by Dave Gates" on the label.
    I assume David Gates, later of Bread.

    What a great sounding arrangement!

    Notice the thread title says “favorites and forgotten” so it’s not just for obscure songs. You can make two separate posts if you’d like, one of a better known 60’s song, and one of an obscurer track.

    Love this track by The Poor. And was pleasantly surprised to see a couple of recent tweets by young people mentioning their admiration for this band’s music.

    Marty Wilde (Kim's dad) and the original of Jesamine which he wrote.
    Best version too.
