I'll be visiting this for more contributions as I get to know it I think.
Love the guitar solo on that track.

Nice choices. The track by The Litter - do you have that on the Arf Arf Garageaholic/Psychedelic/Outsider Music sampler? Crikey, there are some rum selections on there!

Another one from Garagemental! The Cuca Records Story

The Trodden Path - In This World I Need Love
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaVpkXtsmcA

Not actually released until 2006, but recorded in 1966 or 7 (probably!). A bit vague I know, but look, it's a sixties track, alright?

I don't think there's any doubt about that, Randy! Splendid track.

Just to get away from the garage for a moment, here's a couple from Ronnie Hawkins that bookend the decade.

Ronnie Hawkins - Red Hot (1959)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KON4F...eature=related

I wanted to post 'Ruby Baby' instead but couldn't find a clip with decent sound quality.

Ronnie Hawkins (with Duane Allman) - Down In The Alley (1970)

Back to Garagemental!

Raylene & The Blue Angels - Shakin' All Over (1966)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyZ-rqRJMEg

Raylene's take on the Johnny Kidd & The Pirates classic

The Challengers - Take A Ride On The Jefferson Airplane (1967)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxUDVYRt7Tc

This one's a bit crackly as it's come from vinyl, hope it doesn't impair your listening pleasure. No such problems on the cd.

The Sandmen - World Full Of Dreams (1967)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F7vepkXA4k

As you can probably tell I'm really taken with this album and wholeheartedly recommend it to you. I shall probably visit it again just one more time this week (unless I run out of internet!), then if you want to hear more you'll have to buy it!

My last visit (at least for the purposes of this thread) to Garagemental! The Cuca Records Story, and it's for two sides of the same 45, the only record ever cut by Joe Giannunzio, aka Joey Gee & the Come-Ons, although that session also produced a couple of covers that are also included on this excellent album.


Joey Gee & The Come-Ons - She's Mean (1965)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj48HaJHiZI

Joey Gee & The Come-Ons - Till The End Of Time (1965)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb4nXvqkyM4

Bit of a hint of Slim Harpo's 'I Got Love If You Want It' in this one. That's well outside the remit of this thread, but here it is for comparison anyway. See what you think:

Slim Harpo - I Got Love If You Want It (1957)

Three absolute crackers from 1967 from me today. One from Donovan , who is rather unfairly in my view sometimes referred to disparagingly as a poor man's Dylan rip-off, and two from the Electric Prunes, one of the very best psych/garage bands of the 60s.

Donovan - Wear Your Love Like Heaven (1967)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i0zq91Ocz0

The Electric Prunes - Wind Up Toys (1967)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sesp-WPxlSQ

The Electric Prunes - Hideaway (1967)

The McCoys had the hit version of Hang On Sloopy , but in my opinion this version is better .

The Remains - Hang On Sloopy

http://youtube.com/watch?v=s3NKFyMQxVA&feature=related

The Barbarians - Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl

Two very different tracks from one-time Ikette (Ike Turner's backing singers) Pat Powdrill. The first is northern soul, the second psychedelia. Both excellent in their own way.

Pat Powdrill - Do It (1966)

I've decided to take a bit of a break from my page by page review of the thread, because, for the first time in absolutely ages, I've actually got some tracks to submit that are new to the thread.

Three cover versions of songs originally recorded by the Four Seasons have topped the UK singles chart. Here are the originals:-

The Four Seasons - Silence is Golden (1964)
Chart topping version: The Tremeloes (1967).
Good though the Tremeloes' cover is, I much prefer the original version, which started its life as the B-side to the magnificent Rag Doll.

Frankie Valli - The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore (1965)
Chart topping version: The Walker Brothers (1966).
The original version was actually recorded by the Four Seasons, but for whatever reason the only name to appear on the record label was that of their lead singer, Frankie Valli.
This time my preference is definitely for the cover version. I feel the song suits Scott Walker's voice much better than it does Frankie Valli's. The original version, however, is still worth a listen.

The Four Seasons - Working My Way Back To You (1966)
Chart topping version: The Detroit Spinners (1980).
I cannot stand the Detroit Spinners version of this song. It's Disco for crying out loud!
Thankfully, the original version, which I like a great deal, isn't.
