The one Sheep track on YT is a cover of the Beatles' "Drive My Car". It's okay -- some nice organ.

The Basement Wall were "Happening", for a while.
Kind of like a Beau Brummels-Zombies Amalgamation.

Not trying to be Vague - but my Memory is Vague . . .

Willie Purples, in Lafayette, was a Happening Scene, during that ERA. Saw ZZ Top there. Jay's, in Cankton, featured Asleep At The Wheel, several times.

What is YT?

"(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone"

Written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart



First released version (May 1966): Paul Revere and the Raiders



The Liverpool Five -- Some sources claim this was the first version recorded



The Monkees -- Released in November 1966 as the flip side of "I'm A Believer", it still made top 20 on the singles chart.



The Flies -- Released in late 1966 (around the same time as the first Jimi Hendrix records), this cover by an English psych band shows the switchover to a heavier sound.

Crawling through the Night

The Nightcrawlers - "The Little Black Egg" (1966)

A '60s jangle-pop classic, complete with simple but unforgettable ringing-guitar riff and inscrutable lyrics. Covered by The Cars, The Lemonheads, and The Minus 5 among others.



No one was more surprised by the record becoming a hit (#85 in Billboard!) than the band themselves, who all expected success would go to their Daytona Beach high school classmate -- one Duane Allman.

Somebody actually made a documentary about the Nightcrawlers: Watch the trailer here

Meanwhile, far away in the frozen Northland...

The Night Crawlers - "You Say" (1966)

Not the same band our heroes from Daytona (note the space in the name), these fellows hailed from Owatonna, Minnesota. Their one and only record is an irresistibly catchy, harmony folk-rocker.





And yes, there's a very brief documentary about them, made by the bassist's son. Curiously, he doesn't mention that the band's drummer, Bill Redeker, would later become a very successful international correspondent for ABC News.

I like the playing, the vocal is kinda meh

I really like this (even if it's really outside the time limits of this thread), even though the mix is bad

The Lowdown on Motown

It may seem hard to believe now, but Detroit had a thriving garage rock scene in the '60s. Mitch Ryder, The MC5, The Stooges, The Amboy Dukes (w/ Ted Nugent), and Bob Seger (whose best work IMHO was in the '60s), among others, all came out of the Detroit scene.

Those acts generally stressed a harder rock, but early on many Detroit bands were influenced by the folk-rock sound of San Francisco's Beau Brummells.

The Young Men - "A Thought Of You" (1966) -- This band recorded for Detroit's Maltese label. Nothing else is known about them.

The Human Beings - "Because I Love Her" (1965) -- Well produced, with some better-than-average drumming, this was a actually fair-sized local hit (making the top 20 on one Detroit radio station's playlist).

The band was somehow able to work this local success into an appearance on the nationally syndicated TV show Shivaree out of L.A., where they lip-synched their record.



This appears to have been the band's only release. They got a national TV spot, and then nothing... Very curious. Maybe the band split because some members got drafted, or left town to go to school, or perhaps they just hated each other.

But at least they got a little bit o' immortality, which is more than most of us end up with.

The Mynah Birds - "It's My Time" (recorded 1966, released 2006)

quote:

The Mynah Birds was a Canadian R&B band formed in Toronto, Ontario, that was active from 1964 to 1967. Although the band never released an album, it is notable as featuring a number of musicians who went on to have successful careers in rock, folk rock and funk.
quote:

Its most memorable lineup included Rick James (who later had a solo career in funk music), Rickman Mason, John Taylor and Neil Young and Bruce Palmer, both founder members of Buffalo Springfield. Goldy McJohn and Nick St. Nicholas would later become members of the rock band Steppenwolf.

re: Psych-Out, or Riot On Sunset Strip




quote:

Though they were considered an enigma in the world of '60s rock collectibles, there was never a group called Fapardokly; the 12 songs on their self-titled album were recorded by Merrell & the Exiles, a Southern California group headed by legendary cult folk-rocker Merrell Fankhauser. That group cut several singles for the tiny Glenn label before heading off in a psychedelic direction and mutating into H.M.S. Bounty. The equally tiny UIP label decided to gather a few of the Glenn singles, add a few more psychedelically oriented tracks that Merrill and his group had recorded, and release the package as the work of a group called Fapardokly. Although it was not recorded or intended as a unified work, it stands as one of the great lost folk-rock classics of the '60s. Fankhauser went on to make more excellent obscure recordings with H.M.S. Bounty in the late '60s and Mu in the early '70s. -- Richie Unterberger, AllMusic.com




Fapardokly -- "Tomorrow's Girl"

The Wildweeds - "No Good To Cry" (1967)

Pretty soulful for a bunch of white boys from Connecticut... Lead singer Al Anderson would go on to join NRBQ

And if the song sound familiar to you fans of The Allmans -- the brothers covered it in their days as The Hour Glass
