From 1966, please enjoy The Youngbloods and the absolutely perfect mashup of Brill Building pop and folk-rock that is "All Over the World (La-La)."
As in "it's the same all over the world when you lose your girl."
God, that's gorgeous. And who amongst us can't relate to the song's sentiment?
These guys have gotten a bad rap over the years, for a couple of reasons; the short version is that they're unfairly pegged as hippie one-hit wonders ("Get Together," which is actually a superb record that should have been a hit two years earlier than it actually was) and because the version of the band that did most of the touring in the hippie days did not include the dapper singer/songwriter of the above, Jerry Corbitt [the guy on the right in the photo]. Who was the Lennon to Jesse Colin Young's McCartney.
In any case, I can tell you from personal experience that the incarnation of the group pictured above was one of the best live rock acts ever (I would pay serious money for a high quality in-concert tape of them from back in the day, but alas, none seem to exist).
Also, too, their first two albums are among the most beautiful artifacts of their era.
They were snazzy dressers as well. Hell, I'd wear that suit Corbitt has on in a heartbeat today if I could find it.
