I never saw / heard this and I was 15 then.

Sounds a little like Jim Morrison/ Doors.

How far we have come with choreography since, re - backup dancers.

“Where the Action Is”

What ever became of Paul Revere and the Raiders?

Wow I had that record but I forgot about this song. It’s been decades since I’ve heard it. Thanks for the memories but now I feel really old :-)

He was a contemporary of the Doors from the L.A. scene. I don’t know how much they crossed paths (even the Turtles have their Doors connection).

Sean Bonniwell passed away a few years ago but he did do some revival concerts on the garage rock scene.

He also became born again and wrote a book about his life.

I remember the song, but don’t recall seeing the band.

The lead reminds me a bit of Lorenzo St. DuBois!

I think the kids in the background are doing The Jerk and The Monkey. The singer does not have an easy voice to listen to. To perform a rambling, stomping sort of song as this one goes best if the singer has a strong voice with good range and projection. He sang as if he was holding back. Whereas with other balladeer shouters like Jim Morrison, the volume and variation of power made you listen. If this had been slowed down to about half the quickness, it would have been a better listen.

[Dick Clark’s “Where The Action Is”]... Thanks Ben...

I remember Dick Clark's little digs at a song he thought peculiar, like when he introduced the 'Trashmen's song 'Surfin Bird'. .....Eveeeeery Body knows about the bird..........Bird -bird - bird - bird....

I remember the Music Machine. In August and September, 1966, they had a prominent position on Boss Radio 93 KHJ’s playlist and were frequently on local television.

An earlier incarnation of the Rivingtons:

Roll On--The Lamplighters (an answer to The Wallflower by Etta James & the Peaches; in turn, an answer to Work With Me, Annie by the Midnighters)

My brother and I noticed that when they were on TV at the height of their popularity.

Incidentally, the pendant worn by the lead singer looks like a Jerusalem cross--a Crusader symbol.

Ah, The Turtles.

Went to HS with them. The band was known as the "Crossfires" in those days. Mark Volman and Howard Kaplan (the front guys) were fat even back then. Chuck Portman was the drummer, I think. Portman was a helluva swimmer as I remember. All nice Jewish boys.

IIRC, Mark and Howard morphed into "Flo and Eddie" some time later, still fat.

We Gentiles went to Viet Nam.

"What ever became of Paul Revere and the Raiders?

They were probably stranded by the Great Airplane Strike of 1966--as was I.

I liked to listen to Flo and Eddie on FM radio back in the Ford/Carter era.

Jimmi Hendrix made the song 'Hey Joe' famous...here are some people who did it before him:

The Leaves

Love

The Soulbenders

Cher

The Standells (American), the Yardbirds (British), and I believe The Doors (American) also had a version of it!

[ The Leaves- Hey Joe ]

...Thanks,..... I thought Lightnin Hopkins : 'Penetentiary Blues", was the base for 'Hey Joe" but Wiki says it wasn't made until the 60s by Billy Roberts...... you never know do you?

Hey Joe, rock and roll (fast version) by the Surfaris (yes the Wipe Out guys) from 1966 (on Decca).

“Mark and Howard morphed into “Flo and Eddie” some time later, still fat”

and toured with Frank Zappa on “Just Another Band From LA”—best concert I ever been to.
