Love this obscurity.
Great track. One of my favorites.
Love this one from 1963.
Love this one from the Four Seasons.
Sonny and Cher with some mid 60's fun.
I don't think this has been posted; a search didn't find it.
Another relatively obscure Four Seasons track, Big Man's World:
Restless - Cathy Saunders
Early Neil Diamond - I'll Come Running
I do the same, but I tell people it's LCD Soundsystem
One of my favourite 60s Garage tracks. I also like the fact it's written by a teenager called Donna Weiss who went on to write Bette Davis Eyes years later.
Buried deep in this thread is at least one mention of "Good Times" by "Nobody's Children" my absolute favourite 60s rarity. I was introduced to this track via Mike Spenser's Trash Box (Trash Box - Wikipedia ). Also saw him and the Cannibals perform it live in London at what I thought was their farewell concert ages ago.
He's apparently retired again.
Mike Spenser & The Cannibals: 41 years after, The "Kings of Trash" Play Farewell Show
I used to have a tape of the Cannibals performing Come See Me on a tape called Greatest Hits of the 1960s. Took me years to find out this wasn't a 60s version! and longer to find out it was a Pretty Things original, 46 in the UK charts on the day of my birth. Mike Spenser sent me an MP3 of this eventually.
Forgot about this gem until this thread popped back up. Thank you
"Mr. Yates" The Omegas (1968)
#39 on the Hot 100 is still fairly obscure..
Gary Lewis & The Playboys "Girls In Love" (1967)
Not the first song, but the second (at 2:14) "Dancing Babies" by Click (1967) -- the chorus weirds me out
Lee was the man.
And here I thought it was by Demented Are Go.
This album in general is really fun to show people, the usual response ive gotten is "this is the beach boys?"
I would have sworn I posted the excellent flip Let's Be More Than Friends, but a search didn't find it:
