Grass Roots  Lollipop Train (Listen: Pop‑up)   Options Where Were You When I Needed You?    1966  CD  Clearly, P.F. Sloan considered this one of his important songs, evidence in his case that "folk-rock" was essentially about how west coast studio pros used Bob Dylan - in this song it was Uncle Bob's troubador misogyny, making Sloan a spiritual father of the Eagles.
