I just recently added this superb top 40 pop gem(it peaked at #32 and should have been a much bigger hit) to my rotation, and it reminded me of the below related performance of it. Do you remember watching MTV in the mid 80's? They had this occasional feature called "Closet Classics" that mainly drew from the Beat Club archives(regular airings included performances from Blue Cheer, Vanilla Fudge, Cream, Tommy James And The Shondells, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Spooky Tooth, The Who, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, etc.). I always thought this was one of the better ones, mainly because The Hollies performed this live. The only other act I remember seeing on "Closet Classics" that performed live was The Easybeats with "Friday On My Mind."
Anyways, enjoy this clip. This is how it should have always been done...a nice, simple setup...no Pro Tools...no tuned down, distorted guitars...no depressing lyrics...happy, dancing teens...I could go on and on!
Speaking of live performances, I was also checking out the rare newsreel footage of The Byrds and The Grass Roots from the Newport Festival in '69. Simply amazing stuff! If I was given a chance to step into a time machine, I would just want to attend one of those festivals and stay there all day. 3 to 5 dollar tickets...are you kidding me? Who wouldn't want to?
