Play List Adds 07/08

09 Jul

Duprees – Around The Corner • The first effort by the group after leaving Coed for Columbia records. While only peaking at #91 on the Hot 100, it was a great song probably drowned by the British Invasion.

Falcons – The Teacher • This song hit the Hot R&B chart but should have crossed over to Pop stations. It was released on United Artists records in 1960.

Bobby Cash – I Don’t Need Your Love And Kisses • In my opinion, Ral Donner was the best Elvis sound-alike, but Bobby Cash gives him a run for his money on this 1964 King released song you should have heard.

Petula Clark – Thank You • A great 1964 song you should have heard released in England on the Pye label.

Unknowns – Melody For An Unknown Girl • This 1966 Hot 100 entry stalled at #74 for this interesting group. Mark Lindsay and Keith Allison of Paul Revere & the Raiders were joined by Steve Alaimo on this Parrot label release.

Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood – Sand • Bubbled Under the Hot 100 at #107 in 1967.

Susan Jacks – All The Tea In China • A song you should have heard from 1980 on the Epic label that has the classic early 70’s Poppy Family sound.

Ivy League – That’s Why I’m Crying • A 1965 effort on Cameo from a British band we should have heard more from.

Mark Valentino – The Push And Kick • This 1962 Hot 100 entry might not have started a dance craze as big as the Twist but it still managed to climb all the way to #27.

Shirelles – Don’t Go Home • This 1967 updated version of the Playmates 1957 hit bubbled under for the group at #110

Kim Weston – A Love Like Ours • The Fabulous Flipside of “Helpless” from 1966

Crew Cuts – You’re A Star Donna Donna • A song you should have heard from this fine group on ABC-Paramount from 1963.

Chris Montez & Kathy Young – You’re The One • A song you should have heard from the Monogram label from 1964 and a great duet.

Keith – Tell It To My Face • Peaking at #37 on the Hot 100 in 1967, this was also recorded by the Hollies.

Reflections – Shabby Little Hut • This Detroit group Bubbled Under in 1965 at #121.

    “Lovers” by The Blendtones should have been a much bigger hit. I love that sound!
