1967 ..the summer of love in San Francisco..I was in Oakland on the way back to South Carolina after my  tour in Viet Nam... I stayed over a few days and went down to Haight/Ashbury area to check it out. Later went out to North Beach to check out Carol Doda. Smiley

This song always reminds me of this time in my life... and what I saw ...

Music is so evocative, no doubt.  This song instantly reminds of this phase of my life (class of '67, we just had our 50th reunion Sat.) and who I was.  "Brown-Eyed Girl" - Van Morrison

My favourite song from 1967 is by The Contours, with Dennis Edwards on lead:

Incense  and Peppermints  drove  my OCD  crazy.   Had  to   read  its  incomprehensible  lyrics   in one  of those  Teen  Throb  rags.

As I drove  down  Interstate  15  into  San Bernardino--1st heard  Light My Fire--all 7 minutes.  What a greeting to LA! Grin Grin Grin Grin

Always loved that one, and so cool with a clip.
Speaking of cool clips and 1967 songs, - this other classic clip from 1967 is interesting because it happened at a weird time for The Contours, just after new lead singer, Joe Stubbs, had, unexpectedly, left the group, and Dennis Edwards had just joined.  It was before they added a new 5th member to round out the group.  So, Jerry Green had to lip synch to Joe's lead singing, and Dennis Edwards had to be "hidden" behind Council Gay and Sylvester Potts, because he wasn't a good enough dancer, and Motown choreographer, Cholly Atkins, hadn't yet had enough time to work with him.  Actually, it looked like Dennis did pretty well, and really didn't need to be hidden.  I think that TV show was Toronto's CKLW's "Swingin' Time" teen dance show, who's affiliated Soul radio station was broadcast from Windsor into Detroit, and always had a lot of Motown and Detroit Soul acts appearing.

I've seen this one, with all it's machinations, but that didn't stop me from looking again.  I get a kick out of it.

Here's the Contours "First I Look At The Purse" with a clip of the fabulous Nicholas Brothers seeming to dance to it.

The Nicholas  Brothers  were  in today's  sports lingo  "sick."  [Means  outrageously great for non-sports fans]
