MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - DOLENZ, JONES, BOYCE AND HART - I REMEMBER THE FEELING - 1975

I thought I would post something to acknowledge the 1 year anniversary of the passing of Davy Jones; instead of some promo film with a rainbow background that anyone who watched the second season of The Monkees' TV show knows quite well, I decided to showcase this rarity.

Micky and Davy teamed up with songwriters Tommy Boyce And Bobby Hart(the #1 smash "Last Train To Clarksville," its less successful rehash "Teardrop City" and of course their own hits "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite" and "Alice Long") and did well-attended tours of the U.S. and Japan during 1975-76. They also released a self-titled album on Capitol in '76 that had a fine batch of well-written pop and rock tunes, but it got mercilessly outsold by a recycled Monkees greatest hits album that came out on Arista. The album was prefaced by this 1975 single; why it didn't become a hit(or at the very least a top 75 entry) is beyond me.

Coming up on The Retro Attic beginning in early March will be "Monkee Monday," which will be a basic short block of Monkees and solo tunes. Every Monday, each block will be different. Listen for the promo/sweeper in the next few days.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - CLIMAX BLUES BAND - I LOVE YOU

This week, I thought I'd feature one of the songs that will be on the upcoming American Bottom 45 show for this month. Who says that these guys couldn't get it right? As far as top 40 success was concerned, they got it right twice by hitting the top 3("Couldn't Get It Right") and the top 15(this one). I felt they deserved a 3rd appearance in the top 40 with "Gotta Have More Love," but sometimes timing isn't everything.

Some critics slammed this song because it sounded "too influenced" by Badfinger, but I know I didn't care. I thought that Badfinger was a great band!

Anyways, enjoy this clip and I'll see you on Sunday for the countdown show!

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - PRELUDE - AFTER THE GOLDRUSH

This song was on the very first K-Tel album I ever heard, and it was complete unlike so many other hits that made it onto those budget compilations! This English folk trio took this Neil Young composition to #22 in the fall of '74; I have had this in the rotation in the past, but I am currently playing their other U.S. charter called "For A Dancer."

The below clip was from a live performance in the early 80's. I think it remains quite faithful to the hit version.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - KNICKERBOCKERS - Lies - 1965 - #20

Some program directors thought that this New Jersey band's first hit was a new Beatles single; it's pretty easy to hear why(the "such a smart girl" accent is a dead giveaway). Their follow-up single, 1966's One Track Mind, is an overlooked(and in my opinion, better) garage rock gem that just missed the top 40.

Anyways, enjoy this vintage performance clip of a classic that has been remade by Styx, Linda Ronstadt, and...dare I say it...Justine Bateman And The Mystery!
