Avatar 1:30pm Joe B:

OK - I did play the Sloan vocal of Where Were You ... this was the original demo that appeared on the first LP. They re-recorded it with Bill Fulton for single release, that is the one that charted. then it was re-recorded AGAIN when Rob Grill joined. all 3 versions are on this rev-ola cd reissue

Ahhh! Born Losers! And Billy Jack’s debut. Always loved how he would get into a fight… Just before the fight he’d just take off his boots and socks and they just let him do that. They respected Hapkido that much.
Avatar 1:47pm KP:

Where Were You is probably the best example of how insular NY radio was at that time. Outside this area, everyone knows that track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Guido from Cologne:

Recently found some Freddy cannon singles for cheap.
Must say the German cover version of "abigail beecher" is hotter.
Avatar 1:49pm Joe B:

great point KP. WABC didn't latch on to many regional folk rockers but was big on Motown, as some lesser hits by the Temps and the like charted higher in NYc than nationally

Yeah, lovin' the Brenda set!
Avatar 2:04pm Grok-o-matic:

Anyone listen to Doris Duke? If so, any recommendations on more stuff like hers? Really raw soul. I call it gutter soul, but not sure if that means anything.
Avatar 2:08pm Todd-o-phonic:

@Grok-o-matic: check out Linda Jones' version of "Your Precious Love".

Brenda was a trendsetter. Eventually everbody at Hitsville went to LA.

I know it's completely unrelated, but I saw Kraftwerk last night at The Ryman and I'm still trying to recover. It was so incredible. Also, Neil Young!
Avatar 2:23pm Joe McG:

@Grok: You might want to try Dave Godin's "deep soul" series of CDs called "Deep Soul Treasures": www.amazon.com...
Avatar 2:25pm Grok-o-matic:

oh nice, thanks for the link. I definitely have a huge list of old soul stuff that's fairly obscure and deep. Always, always looking for more. I'm so amazed sometimes at the sheer amount of old 60s/early 70s soul that I keep finding.

Gloria Gonzales from junior high. She used to play tetherball in a minidress.
Avatar 👻 2:58pm David Shortell:

I've never heard those Lovin' Spoonful tracks. They must be from their last album "Everthing Playing" which doesn't feature guitarist Zal Yanovsky.
For the story concerning Yanovsky's departure, read Bruce Pollock's 1984 book "When the Music Mattered: Rock In the 1960s".

  3:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx JoeB !
Avatar 6:18pm Joe B:

thanks everybody! also, David, Zal is on Six O'Clock but not Mystery. Both charted - Six O'Clock No. 18, Mystery No. 27, and both were probably higher in NYC
Avatar 10:34pm Joe B:

Chris B, sorry I missed you in the shout-outs!

The 2nd “Where Were You When I Needed You”, the one that hit #28 in 1966 with lead vocalist Willie “Bill” Fulton, is the one you played (Source: liner notes for “The Grass Roots All Time Greatest Hits,” which selected the version you played.) Bill Kelly played the 3rd version with Rob Grill's edgier, more macho vocals, August 3, 2014

Scouring YouTube, FMU last year didn't turn up the P.F. Sloan original for me.

Why was FREDDY CANNON on American Bandstand 100+ times ? ? ? Anybody know ?
