When you opened this topic, you mentioned how most people don't really realize what a decade the 60's was musically.And just to show how wonderful the decade
was, that even the rush of the Beatles, and Motown and all the rest, the number
one song in 1964 was "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" by Dean Martin and
in 1965 Was "Strangers in the Night" by Frank Sinatra. The two old guys. they were
around 50.

Now that is a great list! "96 Tears," "Mendocino" and "Little Girl" are just stone classics! When did "Mendocino" get released?

You are a gracious and honorable person. Ever notice how many folks on boards like this get their backs up when somebody helpfully tries to correct a simple mistake? Thank you for having a great attitude!

mathew V. August: I have most of these tunes on a Toga Rock collection. I think Rhino put it out in the 90's. The Gentrys are on it for sure. I own Hey Baby on a Time Life collection 1962, its great! Polk SAlad Annie has been a favorite of mine since the early 80's. Rhino just put out a collection of Tony Joe Whites music on cd. I love his voice too. I even like Elvis's version, and I wasn't a huge Elvis fan.

Mathew V. August: You have such good taste from folk to psychadelia. Do you own all these tunes on album or cd? You have a fortune in great tunes or albums if you do?! I have been noticing your lists for the past year, and as Tony The Tiger says They're Great! I have only seen or heard The Holy Model Rounders on a folk special on PBS I think. Were they on The Easy Rider soundtrack? I thought I heard them on the soundtrack once or twice? You also list obscure tunes. I never heard Eric Burdons version of Mama Told Me Not To Come. I love his version of Paint It Black by The Rolling Stones though. He was great with covers back in the 60's and early 70's.

Yes, the Holy Modal Rounders were on the Easy Rider soundtrack: "If You Want To Be A Bird". Alex Bennett used it as the closing theme of his all night call-in show on WPLJ in the early seventies.

Mathew V. August: Thanks Cleon. Do you live in New York? I lived on Long Island until 1984. WPLJ was the first FM station I listened to as a teenager, later WBAB, on Long Island West Babylon to be exact. I lived in Deer Park. I now live in Missouri. I also heard WNEW ,WPIX, WCBS, and WPLR FM but not in that order. I loved Scott Muny back in the 70's and 80's especially. I think he was on WNEW. I heard his Ticket To Ride Show in Arizona when I lived there. I think I heard Carol Miller on WPLJ back in the late 70's.

All great tunes Cleon. You have great taste in music, eclectic, but all the tunes fit together nicely.

To:Matthew V. August,
Thanks alot.I dunno, maybe it's because I love '60's music so much but it seems everybody on this thing's got great taste.A young lad could sample the post's around here and find lot's of stuff worthy of downloading, or whatever.Anyways yeah I do own all the songs I've posted either on Lp or Cd.I've been at it since I was 12.It's become a burden to deal with the space it takes to keep it all in.And it's like I'm not going to live long enough to listen to it all.I'm not a collector in the true sense of the word, more like a consumer and a completist.(Or like-what do they call those people who just buy and accumulate stuff and never throw it away-pack rat's! )But even though music is my life I'm constantly amazed at just how very little I actually know about it.Or anything else.

First time I heard The Rounder's was on The Fug's First Album and on Virgin Fugs.They were just helping The Fugs flesh out their sound on those early session's and gave them some of their tune's to record, they had their own album's and career.They were both speed freak's.They liked pot & LSD but they talk like they really loved amphetamine's.Peter Stampfel & Steve Webber, yeah.They said in the liner notes to "Moray ( more A as in more amphetamine's) Eels Eat The Holy Modal Rounder's" that they were in the studio and Webber couldn't reach the high notes required so he squirted some WD-40 down his throat and next take they took joila! perfeck. Anyway, enough about them and all the fun they used to have.I'm not trying to promote drug abuse, I'm just talking about this group.There's a DVD documentary out on them that I haven't seen. And that bird song Dunhill picked for Easy Rider wasn't the only good tune they had.

Eric Burdon did that Mama Told Me on his "Eric Is Here" album, and while I personally love it for some reason, it's not as radio friendly as 3 Dog Night's version, their's just seemed to gel better.His came before their's and is a little more like Randy Newman's.And Burdon doesn't really cut loose on it the way he should.But it's still my favorite version of that song.
