Lobo – Rock & Roll Days • This 1974 song you should have heard was an lp cut. I always liked the Lobo sound, but this has a nice 60’s feel to it. Listening to this song will take you back…
Troy Shondell – Tears From An Angel • Coming in #77 on the Hot 100 back in 1961 is one half of the dual side follow-up to the smash “This Time”. The “B” side only hit #92 and that was it for charted hits for Troy.
Eddie Hodges – Ain’t Gonna Wash For A Week • The Fabulous Flipside of “I’m Gonna Knock On Your Door” (already on the Play List) from Cadence records in 1961.
Donnie Brooks – Mission Bell / Gene Pitney – Mission Bell • A TUNEDEX MEMORIES DOUBLE PLAY. First, the Hot 100 version that climbed to #7 for Donnie Brooks in 1960. Then we come right back atcha’ with an lp cut cover by Gene Pitney. We have lost both of these great artists – you can read our Memoriams at our blog: cbenjamin.wordpress.com.
The Parade – The Radio Song • This L.A. group Bubbled Under at #127 in 1968. they also had a Top 20 hit with “Sunshine Girl” (also on our play list). They had a nice sound and should have been a bigger act.
Honeycombs – That’s The Way • A nice song you should have heard from this British group on the Warner Brothers label in 1965.
Buchanan & Goodman – The Flying Saucer • An rock breakthrough as Dickie Goodman and Bill Buchanan invent the “cut in” record. We’ve got both parts 1 and 2 of this 1956 Hot 100 record that climbed to #3.
Van Strickland – Gotta Get A Date • A great teen song you should have heard on the obscure Judson label from 1960. I also have a version of this song by Frank Ifield – but I like Van’s version better.
Jerry Jackson – Time • Jerry never hit the Hot 100, but he did Bubble Under a couple singles. This song is but one of many songs you should have heard I’ve added by him. If you haven’t heard his voice, you will be happy when you do.
Four Flops – Wizard Of Love • This was recorded in 1999 on Crystal Ball. The “Fabulous Flops” are a contemporary doo-wop group from Germany. This is a great “new-wop” song you should have heard.
Lazy Mary – Lou Monte • A #12 Hot 100 hit with two verses in Italian and two in English. A great fun record from RCA-Victor back in 1958.
Fortunes – Here It Comes Again • A great song from one of my favorite British bands. Peaked on the Hot 100 at #27 on Press records in 1965.
