The Ides of March are still a very popular live act in their native Chicago. I think they even have a street named after them in their home town.

With clips like this you can see why! Those horns still kick ass!
Wow...they're still sounding good.

Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears did some prety decent horn based stuff early on. Here's a great number from B,S & T's debut: I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know

An eclectic mix from me today.

Laura Nyro - Stoney End (1967)
I can’t believe that nobody has yet submitted a Laura Nyro track. Brilliant artist.
If you’ve never heard of Laura Nyro, you may still recognise the song, Barbra Streisand had a hit with a cover version in the seventies.

Sounds Orchestral - Cast Your Fate To The Wind (1965)
This was actually a Top Five single, so apologies to the OP for “breaking thread rules” ... yet again!
My excuses are as follows:-
1. It’s a gorgeous instrumental track.
2. Can I once again use the phrase “lost in the mists of time”?

The Passions - Gloria (1960)
Yet more doo-wop from me. Well, I’m a big fan of the genre. Apologies to those who aren’t.

Bessie Banks - Go Now (1964)
Original (and imo the best) version of the song made famous by the Moody Blues.

Country Joe and the Fish - Section 43 (1967)
A seven and half minute treat for lovers of LSD-drenched psychedelic rock.

A little slice of girl group heaven, two terrific songs from Reparata & the Delrons. Sadly I can't find a video of my favourite Reparata song, Saturday Night Didn't Happen, which contains the greatest rhyming couplet in the history of popular music (srsly!), but these are very nearly as good.

Don't know if this has been posted.

I'm not a big country music fan but occassionally there is an absolute corker. This has been covered by many people including Dave Edmunds and The Stray Cats but this is the original

George Jones

This one might be from '59 but is a great instrumental:
Like Young - Andre Previn

Not Andre Preview!

I've always loved Sandy Denny's 'Who Knows Where the Time Goes' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbpURBJA4uA Eva Cassidy's version is better known but the original is just beautiful.

More 1960s cult classics that failed to trouble the UK singles charts:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idcaRTg4-fM
Nick Drake - River Man (1969)

The seminal track by the ultimate UK cult artist and folk legend taken from his debut album "Five Leaves Left".


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIBO7XS7pe8
David Bowie - Letter To Hermione (1969)

Taken from his "Space Oddity" album. This ballad is a love letter to Hermione Farthingale, who Bowie met through Lindsay Kemp. She became Bowie's girlfriend and they lived together for a short while in London in 1968. In early 1969 she left Bowie for Stephen Reinhardt, an American musician and dancer she met on the film Song of Norway.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jttRGtZ7zds
Tyrannosaurus Rex - She Was Born To Be My Unicorn (1969)

Marc Bolan on his third album "Unicorn" before he went electric and abbreviated the band's name to have commercial success.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7IVbHfcLEA
Laura Nyro - Wedding Bell Blues (1966)

Taken from her debut album More Than A New Discovery that also featured the future Barbra Streisand smash "Stoney End" & Blood Sweat and Tears US#2 hit "And When I Die"; this track was later taken to USA#1 in 1969 by The 5th Dimension.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW_rYLoIR08
Janis Ian - Society's Child (1967)

Way before "At Seventeen" this USA#12 hit was written & sung by the then 16 year old with a lyric about the feelings of a young girl who witnesses the humiliation that her African American boyfriend receives from the girl's mother and the taunts that she herself endures from classmates and teachers. It closes with her decision to end her relationship with the boyfriend because of her inability to deal with the social pressure. Makes the entire output of today's over-hyped US teenage talent vacuum Miley Cyrus seem simultaneously tame and lame.

I had to post this. The fantastic Young Rascals doing 'I've Been Lonely Too Long' and a bit of 'Come On Up' live on the Ed Sullivan Show. Great stuff! There's an episode of The Sopranos where a young Tony is watching this (the Rascals were Italian Americans).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzAoeMcjLvA

Also thanks to Vabosity for posting the Peddlers earlier (never heard them before). Here's a superb clip of them playing live - stunning musicians. Check out the drummer! (< in a good way)

You're welcome, Capablanca! Glad you like the Peddlers, yes they are incredible musicians.

Also thanks for the (two song) medley from the Ed Sullivan Show - I love the Young Rascals.

Here's another great medley, this time from a 1965 edition of Shindig:-

Various Artists (including Sonny & Cher and the Rolling Stones) - Reelin' and Rockin' / Whole Lotta Shaking Going On / Johnny B. Goode / The Peppermint Twist / Down The Road Apiece

We've had two tracks from the great Laura Nyro thus far, so a third wouldn't go amiss methinks.

Laura Nyro - Stoned Soul Picnic (1968)



And here's couple of great Laura Nyro songs recorded by other artists.

Three Dog Night - Eli's Coming (1969)

Blood Sweat And Tears - And When I Die (1969)

US chat shows wouldn't be the 1st place to look for rare 60's classics but here's Scottish stand up turned US late night TV host Craig Ferguson's version of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's Look Out There's A Monster Coming

and as someone's posted some David Bowie circa Space Oddity, here he is from earlier on in his first group.

David Bowie and the lower Third - Can't help thinking about me

A very mixed bag today.

Mason Dixon - I Want My Baby Back (1960)
Fairly bog standard Rockabilly, but I just love the guitar sound on this.

Jackie De Shannon - When You Walk In The Room (1964)
The original version a song made famous by the Searchers by the woman who wrote it.
IMHO not only does she sing this song a lot better than the Searchers, she's also a lot nicer to look at than the Searchers.

The Hombres - Let It All Hang Out (1967)
Any song that mentions a Reuben sandwich is a winner with me!

Pink Floyd - Bike (1967)
Some real vintage Floyd. As much as I like “Arnold Layne” and as much as I absolutely love “See Emily Play”, both tracks are bit too well known for this thread, so here instead is a really bizarre piece of nonsense that only the late, great Syd Barrett could have written.

Ella Fitzgerald - Sunshine Of Your Love (1968)
Ella Fitzgerald sings Cream? Well, stranger things have happened. I love Ella and I love Cream, but I don’t think the combination actually works very well. See what you think.

Yes that's them. They did plenty of other good stuff too which is well worth getting, in case anyone has a few quid burning a hole in their pockets.

Today from me, something sweet, something saucy and something... well, I don't know whether it's a good record or not, but I like it.

Rosie & The Originals - Angel Baby
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xm3qnh1sck

Billy Graves - The Shag (Is Totally Cool)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW0HQmgC6ik

Shush! It's a dance! It's also from 1959, but we won't let that get in the way, right?

The Fendermen - Muleskinner Blues
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DtzTCT70nM

(a muleskinner is someone who drives a team of mules. No mules were actually skinned in the making of this record... Probably)

Despite being a big Doo-wop fan, surprisingly, I've never heard this before. Thanks for submitting it. Great track.

You're welcome!

While I'm in the mood, here's a couple more, this time with a Blues/Rhythm & Blues theme:

Screamin Jay Hawkins - Move Me
(This is one of my favourite records of all time)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=recBnIp_Gv8

Lightnin Hopkins - Mojo Hand
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNDJF4azgog

I usually prefer to post the record versions as they're almost always better quality, but this one is a WONDERFUL piece of live footage of the man himself and it's as good a performance as the recording.

Enjoy.

Merrilee Rush - Angel of the Morning (1968)
Great ballad written by Chip Taylor (brother of actor Jon Voight, and uncle of actress Angelina Jolie – how’s that for trivia?), the man who also wrote “Wild Thing” for the Troggs.

The Shirelles - Mama Said (1961)
Non-charting follow up single to the wonderful “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?”.

Love - Andmoreagain (1968)
The fourth track I’ve submitted by this band - I must really love Love (pun intended).

Cliff Richard and the Shadows - Blue Turns To Grey (1966)
That Cliff and the Shadows should do a cover of a Rolling Stones song is remarkable enough. That Cliff and the Shadows should do it (imho) BETTER than the Stones is even more remarkable.
