does this precede the beach boys?
Nah, this was '65.
Hi Debbie, we have a new podcast available today, with songs about body parts, murder and fighting. Including as usual Greg Cartwright amongst others. Check it out - http://polyvinylcraftsmen.blogspot.com/
I think this tune should inspire someone to do a show of songs with New York as the topic.
Tight!I always thought this was The Beach Boys when I heard it on FMU...
this was on the famous ? red bird label, who tried anything. Most successful were the Dixie Cups and Shangri-las, and Leiber-Stoller was behind it. RB reigned from 64-66. Later the stuff appeared on vountless re-issues. Bye from Holland !!
This was a big hit in Los Angeles, I remember ... as any surfing tune would have been, I suppose, but the deejays played the heck out of it too.
Same Trade Winds who would have another hit with "Mind Excursion" I believe a year later.BTW, their follow up to this was "The Girl from Greenwich Village"Which sounds awfully familiar to this tune.
is the same Trade Winds who did "The Abba-Dabba-Do-Dance"?
