Hey Everybody!

I remember going to Irving Plaza for a triple bill many moons ago:
Joe “King” Carrasco and the Crowns
The dBs
Marshall Crenshaw
No one knew who who Crenshaw was, but he was great! I assumed it was the first time he played live in NYC. I contacted him a few years back, and he confirmed that it was his debut performance here.

Michael's out, but Mike Sin!
  Swag For Life Member 11:37am tadpoles:

Ray Columbus was a Kiwi Mike. Had big hits in New Zealand as Ray Columbus & The Invaders - "Till We Kissed" and "She's A Mod". Grew up listening to them but never saw them live.


Sorry not Australian. Funnily enough there was a NZ band back in the day called "The Pleazers" Cheers.

I think I was 12 or 13 when my big sis brought home the first Steppenwolf LP. I was listening to the Beach Boys, the Monkees, AM radio (all great stuff mind you) but this was indeed *heavy*. And a little frightening, And "Sookie Sookie" just seemed nasty though I had no idea why. Which intrigued me to say the least!
  12:02pm Ross T:

Terrific show btw!
Avatar 12:10pm Joe B:

yes, Covay

Wow, Sagittarius....one of my favorite psychedelic tunes from that period (& a great "Nuggets" track). Is that really Glen Campbell on lead vocals?
Avatar 12:42pm bigplanetnoise:

It is Glen Campbell on the verses!
  12:43pm Frank Zaatar:

Did Nat Adderly ever get a check from this song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm listener 126464:

  12:47pm yngdave666:

  12:49pm yngdave666:

Is that the same Illusions that did “Did you see her eyes”?
  12:50pm middlebun:

Fill-ins are SO ready! Get your own show, please.
Avatar 12:51pm Joe B:
