love light... Chants

Why would I post this you ask? The session drummer for the song is a 16 year old Carl Palmer.


And who were The Chants? Uniquely, they were a Merseybeat band with all-black members. They struggled right through the sixties with no success until 1976 came along (by then they were know as 'The Real Thing'), hitting massively with 'You To Me Are Everything', which I'm pretty sure Carl Palmer didn't play on!


A couple from Paul Revere and the Raiders:


Excellent group who just couldn't cut it at all in Britain - perhaps the 'revolutionary' outfits went over our heads completely! But most of their songs were quality.

The British equivalent were this lot - producing a string of all-original singles, but meaning nothing Stateside...

The "Alabama Song" (also known as "Whisky Bar," "Moon over Alabama," or "Moon of Alabama") was originally published as a poem in Bertolt Brecht's Hauspostille (1927). It was set to music by Kurt Weill for the 1927 "Songspiel" Mahagonny and used again in Weill's and Brecht's 1930 opera Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny (Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.)

The song was recorded in 1966 by the rock group The Doors, listed as "Alabama Song (Whisky Bar).". The lead singer of The Doors, Jim Morrison, changed the second verse from:

"Show us the way to the next pretty boy" to "Show me the way to the next little girl". Although on the 1967 Live at the Matrix recording, he sings "... next little boy".

In addition, the verse from the original, "Show me the way to the next little dollar" is omitted. The melody of the verses is also changed. Keyboardist Ray Manzarek plays the marxophone on this song along with the organ and keyboard bass.

February 18th 1966 - Beach Boy Brian Wilson recorded the future classic song 'Good Vibrations', which went on to become the band's third US number-one hit. As a child, his mother told him that dogs could pick up "vibrations" from people, so that the dog would bark at "bad vibrations" Wilson turned this into the general idea for the song.

In 1966, Simon and Garfunkel made their UK singles chart debut with 'Homeward Bound.' Simon is said to have written the song at Farnworth railway station, Widnes, England, while stranded overnight waiting for a train. A plaque is displayed in the station to commemorate this, although memorabilia hunters have stolen it many times. The song describes his longing to return home, both to his then girlfriend, Kathy Chitty in Brentwood, Essex, England, and to return to the United States. The song was also a No.5 hit in the US.

Beatles ~ Eleanor Rigby

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9Itt02QOO0

I have always appreciated the beauty and sadness of this song.
On October 10th 1939, The real Eleanor Rigby died in her sleep of unknown causes at the age of 44. The 1966 Beatles' song that featured her name wasn't written about her, as Paul McCartney's first draft of the song named the character Miss Daisy Hawkins. Eleanor Rigby's tombstone was noticed in the 1980s in the graveyard of St. Peter's Parish Church in Woolton, Liverpool, a few feet from where McCartney and Lennon had met for the first time in 1957.

"Georgy Girl", written by Tom Springfield (music) and Jim Dale (lyrics), is the title song performed by The Seekers for the British film of the same name starring Lynn Redgrave and James Mason. Across late 1966 and early 1967, the song became a #1 Australian hit and a #3 British hit. In the United States, it proved to be the Seekers' highest charting single, reaching #1 on the "Cash Box Top 100"; #2 on the Billboard Hot 100; and, prompting the Seekers' British album Come the Day to be retitled Georgy Girl for its American release. It was listed at #36 on Rolling Stone magazine's "500 Greatest Pop Songs of all time" issued in 2002.

"Mother's Little Helper" is a song by the English rock band The Rolling Stones. It first appeared as the opening track to the United Kingdom version of their 1966 album Aftermath. It was released as a single in the United States and peaked at #8 on the Billboard Singles Charts in 1966. The B-side "Lady Jane" peaked at #24. The song deals with the sudden popularity of prescribed calming drugs among housewives, and the potential hazards of overdose or addiction. The drug in question is variously assumed to be meprobamate or diazepam (Valium).

"Opus 17 (Don't You Worry 'bout Me)" is a song composed by Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell and recorded by The Four Seasons in 1966 for their album Working My Way Back to You. The song was released as the official followup to the title song of the album and reached the #13 position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. This was the first hit with new full-time bassist/bass vocalist Joe Long. As was the case with another Linzer-Randell contribution to the Four Seasons catalog, "Let's Hang On!", "Opus 17" features a rhythmic vocal hook within each verse, but, unlike in most Four Seasons singles, falsetto singing is muted except in the Coda section by Frankie Valli.
