Often B sides were superior to the As.
This was certainly the case with Manfred Mann in the 60's.

Hey Joe ,
What was the other side of Take me for a little while? I thought it was the A side

Hey Joe..Here in the East coast, the first time I heard it it was the Flip side of "You keep me hangin On"
If I remember correctly it was 1967. I am sure of it.

Joe, Just looked it up. We are both correct ,"Take me for a little while" was issued 3 times. Twice with "You keep me hanging on" and once with "Thoughts" which is the 45 I have.
VF always reminded me of the Rascals. Joe D. Rochester NY

Thanks Joe for the info, glad we are both right.
There are similiarities to the Rascals alright, but I think the Rascals fro those years where the Greatest American Band..period. I love Rock n Roll Soul and they wrote great blue-eyed Soul Music. Plus the fact that Felix Cavaliere lived in the town next to me growing up might have something to do with it. He is from Pelham Ny and I am From Mt. Vernon, Ny. Also talk about "b" sides, the rascals were on par with the Beatles when it came to great "b" sides.

Hey Joe, Gene Cornish is from here , Rochester NY. Lou Gramm also.
Your right the Rascals were fantastic, they don't get along tho I love Felix with his new band.
I too am a Beatle fanatic.
I loved the Beau Brummels growing up and now into CheapTrick, Jeff Lynne, Fastball and the former Velvet Revolver. Saw the Beach Boys 50th concert here and it was much better than I expected. 48 songs!
Have you heard Mike Viola? Check out "Closet Cutter "and let me know what you think.

Joe D,

I've seen Felix about 8 or 9 times since the old rascal days. I have also Seen Gene with Dino in a band called the NEW Rascals. I'm still a 60's freak. Although I do get into some new stuff it just isn't enough for me to hold my interest. Growing up since I am 60 now it was Brit Invasion, Stax, Motown and James Brown. I also liked American Pop rock like Paul Revere, McCoys, Grassroots, Tommy James, Tommy James lovin Spoonful etc. Never really got into the Haight Asbury music., Although I did like the singles by the Airplane, Doors, but I never and still can't get into the Grateful dead. Did see Ringo this year at WoodStock, Felix and Wet willie at BB Kings and going to see Buddy Guy/Jonny Lang in September and The Buckinghams, Tommy James, Herman's Hermits and Gary Lewis & the playboys this Oct. should be fun. And No I have never heard of Mike Viola. But I did hear of Frank Viola, he pitched for the Twins and Mets. I am a huge Yankee and Baseball fan also.

Joe, if you get a chance see Chris Hillman live. I saw him last month with the Desert Rose Band and he plays a killer set. Trots out some gems from the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Bros as well.

Joe, some great Blue eyed soul can be found in the bands "The Sons of Champlin" and "The Fabulous Rhinestones" and "The Average White Band" Joe D

Thanks Joe

My favorite Blue-eyed Soul guys are Daryl Hall, Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie band) Gregg Allman and Tommy Castro..who plays a great blues guitar also.

Thanx, Joseph.
I know that if i had my old 'singles', they'd be unplayable. At least i could look at them (black Phillips label for the former, yellow and white 'trumpet' ATCO label for the latter).
Its cool you have them :)

The b-sde to Sunny Afternoon (1966) is a seldom heard heard song entitled: I'm Not Like Everybody Else. This is my favorite song from The Kinks by a country mile.

Correct me if I'm wrong here.

In the U.S. the Beach Boys single was released as :
Side A: Wouldn't It Be Nice
Side B: God Only Knows

In Europe and the U.K. it was the opposite:
Side A: God Only Knows
Side B: Wouldn't It Be Nice

Most people think Brian Wilson wrote God Only Knows alone, but actually Brian composed the music and Tony Asher wrote the lyrics.

Side A: Donna
Side B: La Bamba

Through the years the folk song La Bamba has become more popular than the ballad Donna.
