Excellent choices. My favourite Neil Diamond single, my favourite version of "Handbags and Gladrags", and Tim Rose's "Morrning Dew", one of my favourite tracks ever.

My selection is as follows:-

"My Little Red Book" by Love

"Love Of The Loved" by Cilla Black

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2b99SmcsDbg

"98.6" by Keith

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V44vvsWZxqI

and the original and imho definitely the best version of "Walk Away Renee" by The Left Banke

None of these were hits at the time but other bands would take them/parts of them and have hits with them...

Some more from me:-

Nobody But Me by The Human Beinz
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxtJoGdujYo

Ballad of a Big Girl Now and a Mere Boy by Principal Edwards Magic Theatre
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueLke...eature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iyBh...eature=related

Different Drum by The Stoneponeys
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3Nq48sHF8M

Deep Purple by Nino Temple and April Stevens
Apparently, this was actually a pretty big hit back in 1963, but it never gets played on “oldies” stations nor does it ever feature on 60’s compilations, so I now declare it a rarity! Good song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHjq4...eature=related

Non Ho L’eta by Gigliola Cinquetti
The fact that this is the 1964 Eurovision Song Contest winner is irrelevant - it's hardly Boom Bang A Bloody Bang!
The girl is beautiful, her voice is beautiful, the song is beautiful and it’s sung in Italian. What more could you possibly want?

Some Velvet Morning is one of the most bonkers songs I've ever heard, I think!

i LOVE 'some velvet morning' ... bonkers maybe, but stunning! how dark was lee hazelwoods part?

eugenespeed 29-05-2010 14:06

This might be a good thread to ask this. A mate played me a song by an obscure 60's band ages ago which I liked, however, I can't remember the song, or the bands name.

It was a short band name, possibly only 3 letters (in full, so it wasn't a The 3 letters band).

Any ideas?

Yes, very. I believe Kate Moss covered it with someone (Jarvis Cocker, maybe?) but I can't bring myself to find it and listen to it.

oh thanks for posting the loving spoonful and stone ponies thracks..i knew them once i heard them! :)

that nino temple/april stevens track gave the rock group their name, apparently it was one of their mother favs!

indeed gigliola chinquetti's vocals are beautiful. beat todays female 'vocalists' hands down (and without auto tune as well! lol)

Do you have any other info - any words in the chorus, slow, similar sounding music etc?

Erm, can't really remember the song, which was why I was after the band name, but, I remember it sounding almost 90's Alternative Rock. Had a few strange (for it's time) sounds in. It was guitar based if I remember correctly, not heavy metal, but a lot heavier than more of the 60's guitar pop bands.

That's really all I know, a long show I know but thanks for helping.
