went with joey to the mendon 60s diner
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:20pm davemarando:

to bad you couldnt broadcast from there sometime
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/8/15 3:20pm Mike Sin:

re: backing vocals on "Sugar on Sunday"

Don't have the LP right in front of me, but if those were done solely by members of the Shondells, Tommy got a lot of bang for his buck here. Those mofo's could not only play, but then sing like birds...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/8/15 3:23pm Mike Sin:

Hey, and thanks, for the "electronic" dedication, as it were... Thatsa nice-a!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:23pm MattBelow:

@Mike Sin: They must've sang 'em. Or it could Tommy James overdubbing a million times.
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:24pm davemarando:

your working later also
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:25pm MattBelow:

@Pops: Maybe I can do a remote broadcast there sometime
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:26pm davemarando:

Hey Joe!

I always thought this version had a drummer who heard the song once and was like ok I got it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/8/15 3:35pm Mike Sin:

re: early version of "Space Oddity"

Drummer: "Hey man, I was told this was going to be supper-club jazz!"

  Tue. 12/8/15 3:40pm davemarando:

  Tue. 12/8/15 3:42pm davemarando:

how many hits did the lemon pipers have
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:44pm MattBelow:

@Pops: I know Green Tambourine and Rice Is Nice were the biggies. Maybe Mr. Sin or Joe know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/8/15 3:45pm Mike Sin:

re: Lemon Pipers
Was just going to post that -- Nothing compared to "Green Tambo," but I think "Rice is Nice" was the only other top-40 hit.
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:47pm davemarando:

ok thanks
Avatar Tue. 12/8/15 3:50pm Joe B:

seemed like more hits for them as I had the Checkmate LP! (1910's hits on Side 2)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:52pm MattBelow:

@Joe B: Sounds like a must have!
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:54pm davemarando:

when did it become not just the animals
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:56pm MattBelow:

@Pops: Early 1966
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:57pm davemarando:

wonder why his name had to be in front
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:57pm MattBelow:

@Pops: But then later in 1966 the original band disbanded and he got a whole new band, one of which ended up being Mr Summers from The Police
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/8/15 3:57pm Mike Sin:

@davemarando re: Animals

The band broke up for all intents and purpose after a 1966 US tour. (Chas Chandler actually went off and discovered Jimi Hendrix!) Eric B. essentially got another crew together and put his name out front.
  Tue. 12/8/15 3:58pm davemarando:

interesting i love the history to these bands
Avatar Tue. 12/8/15 3:58pm Joe B:

great show Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/8/15 3:59pm MattBelow:

Thanks for everyone tuning in!

@Mike Sin: He was maybe a little of Alan Price too y'think?
