  1. I've got a couple of versions of this (Dick Dale? The Beach Boys?)

    They put on a great show - I think you posted 'Whole Lot of Shakin' a couple of months ago, which I really liked too.

    On our way out now, so I'll check out more posts tomorrow. (Looking forward to Sammi Smith's 'Help Me Make It Through the Night', which I haven't heard yet.)

    By the way, in case I didn't mention it before, I think your new side-bar blurb is very well done.


    1. Thanks, Marie. Bobby Fuller and his teenage band must have something to see/hear live. And heresy tho' it may be, I think Bobby's version of "Miserlou" kills Dick Dale's dead! The live Fuller version of "Whole Lotta Shakin'" is still up but the link might be dead. . . .
