The Sound of a Golden Age (An Occasional Series)

This song had been totally under my radar until yesterday -- which astounds me -- but my god, this is great.

Ladies and germs, from 1965, please enjoy the obviously transplendently wonderful The Searchers and...

...their cover of P.F. Sloan's "Take Me for What I'm Worth."

Or as the friend who just hipped me to it remarked, what life would be about if Phil Spector had produced Bob Dylan.

I mean...wow.

A fine fine recording. I'm surprised you were never aware of it since you are a Searchers fan.

Actually, "if Phil Spector had produced Bob Dylan" sounds like a disaster of epic proportions. Too bad it never happened.

Outstanding! I'd never heard it either. Thanks for posting it!
