    No forgotten, but I have not heard The Doors on radio in quite a while.

    I would say, rather, that Peter Green is one of the best! He's only 72 years old.

    Anyone remember the King Biscuit Flower Hour? I remember sailing Mobile Bay in a 21' boat, heading towards Petit Bois Island, with the radio playing the Faces, listening to the KBFH. A nice memory, looking at the stars, with the boats slipping along quietly.

    I remember it. I'm not sure but it seems like the FM station in Jackson carried it. Is that where you picked it up from?

    This number climbed high on the charts when Eydie Gormé (a New Yorker) launched it in 1963; the following is a rendering by Johnny Lion and The Jumping Jewels, a Dutch outfit modelled somewhat on the lines of 'Cliff Richards and the Shadows', a British group that faded in eminence as the Beatles, Stones etc. came on stage.

    Very few people, excepting perhaps the Dutch - a forumite on here is Dutch, goes by Beernd - know of Johnny Lion & Etc; I came across them in Karachi, Pakistan during my high-school days (63/65) when they were on an East/Far East tour, which they did repeat in short order, always to packed houses; as adolescents we had never witnessed live shows of bands as such, with their first-rate electronic amplification, special effects (vibrato), vocals etc., although we did have pretty good local bands that played in dance halls etc.

    Man, weren´t we thrilled to the core !

    How about Johnny Kidd the the Pirates from 1960. Thier sound transcends rock history and is one of the greatest.

    I was having dinner with some friends who sing in a great local choir and suggested a Mamas & Papas cover band. Apparently someone from the opera already has one. I'd love to hear it!

    Great song. I was just twelve years old when I first heard it and it blew me away.
    Nice dancers too, but that video is not contemporary with the song, and it's not JK and the Pirates on stage. Probably circa 1965/66 something like that. Sadly JK died in a car crash in 1966, so we lost another great artist at an early age.

    Actually the video may be early clips of Jay and the Americans. The video editor didn’t know the difference.

    kidd had a great rock voice. The guitar and drum breaks are revolutionary rock.

    The people who booed when Dylan went electric were really dumb. Liberals. Rock saved folk better than the folkies could ever have hoped to. And the folkies were missing what you can get when you blend in science fiction, country, Latin, classical, whatever you like. From the garage to the halls of academe and back.

    Break on Through by The Doors was based on bossa nova.

    Cliff Richards achieved fame in 1959 with a chart topper 'Living Doll' and thereafter teamed up with a 4-some band known as 'The Drifters'; they changed their name in short order to 'Cliff Richard and The Shadows', because despite the band´s musical talent, they were but the shadows of 'Britain´s Elvis Presley' (( : superb, visionary marketing for the day)

    The following is a live-recording made in the UK for German TV of 'Move It', with Cliff and his band improvising on the original number, both as regards to vocals as well as on the backing instrumentals, quite unusual for them at the time, as they kept by the book (didn´t we all ? )



    By the time of the above recording (1967) they had altered their hair-cuts, from clean-cut exception being made for Cliff´s Elvis-type 'overhead cream-roll', to the one introduced and coined by the Beatles, adopted by the Rolling Stones etc..
