Can Your Monkey do the Dog?  performed by The Tee-Set  1966
Composed by Rufus Thomas

Dutch R&Bsters lay down their finest Spencer Davis Group imitation on this Rufus Thomas classic. From their '66 LP "Emotion", which also features the Nederbeat classic "Don't You Leave".

from Emotion (Delta), available on CD (Delta)




  29 Jul 05 ·umbrellasfollowrain: I'm really interested in tracking this down. I badly want it for a friend's birthday mix cd. Do you know of anywhere that I could download the complete song online? Say you did then oh wow, would that ever be cool.
The Day You Take One, You Have to Take the Other  performed by The Marvelettes  1967
Composed by Smokey Robinson

Classic uptempo Motown girl sound! Fits the Berry Gordy formula so perfectly that it should have been a huge hit. Features a terrific bubbling bassline and mesmerizing finger snaps!

from The Marvelettes (Tamla)




  19 Apr 01 ·scrubbles: Ooooh, I dig this song - gotta love those Smokey Robinson lyrics! "A little bad comes along with every good/You've got to take the bitter with the sweet."
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Reminds me of 'Don't Mess With Bill'. Quite an old fashioned sound for 1967...The Marvelettes didn't seem to really keep up with the times. Good though.
That's Nice  performed by Neil Christian  1966

A goofy, yet endearing, ripoff of Chuck Berry's "Memphis", which I really cannot explain the attraction of.

from the single That's Nice (Strike)
available on CD - 1962-73 (See For Miles)




  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: This was a big hit on Britain's pirate radio stations back in 1966. His next song 'Oops' was also very good.
Season of the Witch  performed by Lou Rawls  1968
Composed by Donovan Leitch

David Axelrod leads ol' Lou through a pent-up take on the Donovan classic. Starts out slow, building momentum as it draws to a fantastic close.

from the single Season of the Witch (Capitol)
available on CD - Classic Soul (Magnum Midprice)




  14 Apr 05 ·Goes Up To 11: And definitely don't miss the 1968 cover of "Season of the Witch" by Vanilla Fudge -- an absolute triumph of excessive bombast! The phrase "over the top" barely begins to capture that performance. It will leave you shaking your head in amazement at the sheer audacity and monumental bad taste, but it is so much fun!
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Lou Rawls never really cut it for me. Sounds like '60's soul for housewives. His voice sounds strained a lot of the time.
Viva Bobby Joe  performed by The Equals  1968
Composed by Eddy Grant

Who'd have guessed that Eddy "Electric Avenue" Grant had been in such an awesome psychedelic pop band? I'm not entirely sure what this song is about (Sex? Racecars? Paper towels?), but I do so love it.

from the single Viva Bobby Joe (Fontana)
available on CD - Viva Equals (MCI)
