The 1960s was an incredible decade for music, so why keep listening to the same ol’, same ol’ ? We’ve got records by the Turtles, the Tangerine Zoo, Procol Harum, and the Blues Magoos, a track from Three Dog Night’s first album, garage band 45s, dynamite soul by Otis Clay, William Bell, and Sugar Pie Desanto, plus lots more.
You’ll hear San Francisco’s Neighb’rhood Childr’n, the Yardbirds, Brian Auger & Julie Driscoll, early Santana, Patti Drew, the Creation, another track from that new Rolling Stones BBC collection, lots of cool 45s, and more.
A track from Jefferson Airplane’s debut album, a single from the summer of ’67 by Lowell George and the Factory, songwriter Mickey Newbury’s trippy 1968 version of his composition “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”, plus Them, early Beatles, the Easybeats, and much more.
We’ll listen to records by the Troggs, Joe Tex, Kim Fowley, the Druids of Stonehenge, the Swedish band Tages, the Dutch band the Ro-D-Ys, plus Bobbie Gentry, the Hollies, Fever Tree, early Sly & the Family Stone, and much more.
We’ll hear Ike & Tina Turner, the Moody Blues, Traffic, Gandalf, Lowell George & The Factory, some ’64 Merseybeat from Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, a ’69 single by James Brown and Marva Whitney, 45s by American garage bands the Liberty Bell, the Mushrooms, and the Misty Wizards, plus much more.
Who wouldn’t love this clip? Pat & Lolly Vegas (later to be known as Redbone) perform a cool song in a monster’s mouth at a club called the Dungeon while a girl wearing a tiara, gloves,go-go boots, and a bikini with fringe dances in front of them. ‘Nuff said.
From the culminating scene in the film. Lulu makes the introduction and after a little subterfuge, student Pam (Judy Geeson) gets her dance with “Sir” (Sidney Poitier) while the Mindbenders play.
