1960's music
 
The 60's produced some of the greatest musical groups of all times . One of the greatest of that decade was a group that originated in New Jersey .They had 4 huge hits and several others as well.
They are still recording today but unfortunately 3 of the original members passed away.

I have decided to have a current photo of the group as my latest avatar in tribute to a guy I knew who was one of the founding members .

If you are or were into 60's music you should know the group.

Frankie Vallie and the 4 Seasons?
Even if I get the question wrong, I'm still a big fan of 60's music.
they just don't make 'em like that anymore...:(

So very true ,Donna . They don't make them like that anymore .

On the last Saturday in June every year there is an outdoor Doo Wop /50's-60's concert outdoors with big name groups in our area .We try to get there when health allows us .Its always a great evening.

This group is not The Four Seasons but in my opinion a lot better .


ToddDH April 13th, 2011 09:48 AM

I want to say The Four Lads but I think they were more of a 50's group. Anyway, the avatar is too small for me to make out the faces (that's my excuse anyway).

Not the Four Lads ,good guess ,Todd.

Did you see (can't for the life of me remember the name of it - Oh What a Night?). I must be getting old and losing my memory. DH took me to see it for my birthday last year, it was amazing! [I'm talking about the musical based on the four seasons]

Queen of Oakville April 13th, 2011 10:23 AM

It came to me just after I hit post- JERSEY BOYS.

venice April 13th, 2011 10:34 AM

Henry..saw them in Baton Rouge at an oldies show..you are right..they are :D:Dsoooooooooooooooooo good:D:D:D..You do know know they are on the Malt Shop Memories Cruise in October on the Carnival Inspiration out of Tampa, with (among others), Little Anthony and the Imperials, Dianne Reeves (former lead singer of the Shirlelles), Chubby Checker, Lou Christies, The Beach Boys etc......your wife "pm" me to ask me, to ;)suggest;) to you that if you booked the Malt Shop Memories Cruise for her Mother's Day surprise present, you might have more memories then just the music while on the cruiseroflrofl

Queen..great show about the 4 Seasons..if you ever catch reruns of The Sopranos, Frankie Valli had a recurring cameo appearance for about 6 shows, which is fitting since they had alleged ;)connections;)that might have helped their career during the 50's-60's

Queen of Oakville April 13th, 2011 10:45 AM

Venice, would you believe I didn't watch the Sopranos? I caught the odd episode here or there, but didnt' want to get "hooked" mid-run. I keep waitnig to catch it form the beginning on bravo or A&E or something.

Saw Vinny Pastore this week on Shark Tank.

venice April 13th, 2011 10:50 AM

Queen..I catch it every weekday on A&E at 2 pm (after reruns of The Closer at 1 pm on TNT)...it fun to watch it evolve from the 1st season..I much prefer the first 3 seasons then the last 2 seasons

Paul B April 13th, 2011 11:13 AM

The Four Bottoms? Sorry, I got things wrong, that's a current group.:eek::eek::eek:

Anthony Gourdine and I grew up in the same area along with another guy who had a little bit of a career by the name of Richard P.Havens .
I try and get to at least one concert every year of both of them.

I saw the show on Broadway with the original cast ,it was fantastic .

venice April 14th, 2011 05:02 AM

I've met Richie Havens..at Woodstock he was asked by the promoter to stretch out his stage time while Canned Heat was making it's way to the stage, so that's how his now famous song 'Freedom" version came about..

ToddDH April 14th, 2011 09:28 AM

I loved so much of the 60's music (never went for the British Invasion, though) including Pop and Country.

Although one album I coveted which interestingly enough, I never owned, was a Live recording of the late Levi Stubb and The Four Tops recorded at the Upper Deck of the Rooster Tail in Detroit. Wonder if the place is even still there and if so, what it's like today.

In the early 50's my father had a friend who was the Maitre'D at a hotel in the Catskills .A young singer from Astoria,NY was appearing there one week and he recorded a song at the hotel .Somehow my fathers friend was able to get the demo record and gave it to my father to hold for him until he came back to Brooklyn after the summer .For whatever reason he never asked for it and I am now in possession of Tony Bennett's demo of Rags To Riches.

venice April 14th, 2011 10:45 AM

Henry..feel free to put in your will that I receive the demo;)..Two years ago the official jazz festival poster of Louis Prima (celebrating his 100th birthday) was painted by Tony Bennett..I purchased one of the 250 limited edition glycees and Mr. Bennett was nice enough to sign it for me at JazzFest..I custom framed it..my grandson will receive this cherished piece in his inheritance

Todd..I don't think it's there anymore but I'll ask my friend who lives in Detroit to check..I'll check at the local record store that has old albums to see if I can find you a copy..I once sang an impromptu concert with the Four Tops in the jetway on a flight from Oakland to Chicago at midnight...they asked me to go on the road with themroflroflroflbut I had to say no because my son was small..do you know when their lead singer Levi Stubbs died, to honor them, they have never replaced him (so thus the 3 Tops)

I am also in possession of a program from the Sunday November 17,1929 jazz concert featuring Jazzlip Richardson and Edith Wilson .My father went to the concert and had the program souveneir put into plastic many years later .

ToddDH April 14th, 2011 05:43 PM

Speaking of programs, I have (from my late Aunt) an entire program (it's like a brochure) from the Cotton Club. You think the girls in Vegas are scantily clad? Think again and this was in the mid thirties!

Todd

venice April 14th, 2011 09:37 PM

Todd..my Mom danced in the chorus line at the Cotton Club in the late 30's for a couple of months when Cab Calloway's band was the house band...I have a picture of her from that era and now understand why my Dad took a shining to her8-)8-)..I am currently reading a book about Cab Calloway and find it fascinating..if you can, make a copy of the program and send it to me and when I go see her this summer, I'll give it to her..

Lakers Fan April 14th, 2011 11:17 PM

My father saw Cab Calloway perform in probably one of his earliest live show appearances . I used to have a program but I can't recall what happened to it.
