That was a single in its day, and I wore out my 45 copy of it in the expectation that it would appear on the next Byrds album in stereo. Alas, that was when they kicked Crosby out of the band, and when the album -- The Notorious Byrds Brothers -- did finally come out, they omitted the single (and replaced Crosby in the album cover photo with a horse). I should add that the version heard in the video was first releaed on a 1987 comp of Byrds rarirties and remixes (Never Before), and Crosby insisted on replacing Mike Clarke's original drum part with the work of the guy in his then touring band.
But now to business. To wit...
Have a great weekend, everybody!
No. Brian Jones bangs are not a good look. And three straight-up sport coats (O.K., one looks suede.) & a mod-boy pastel sport coat w/ buttons are two too many sport coats.
Worst what? Publicity photos, costumes?
Any of the hair bands with their spandex and makeup. Not a good look by any means.
David's insistence at wearing that grungy poncho in almost every publicity photo of the time is a turnoff. Did he sleep in it?
I prefer the version of "Lady Friend" included in the box set. The drums are less obtrusive.
I love the Rascals, but those idiotic outfits they wore when they were Young were pretty cringe-inducing.
Jefferson Airplane for both best and worst dressed.
Grace could be stunning or dressed as Hitler or in blackface.
And who can forget Jorma’s swastika that led to some really bad feelings within the band and with the audiences.
A little more.
Paul always looked dignified.
And years later Jorma found out he was part Jewish.
More Captain Al
Agreed on Rascals. I was a huge fan but those knickers and collars were just wrong
I always assumed they were ordered into them by some record company exec
One could make a case for the Beatles as baby butchers...
The well-known Stones shot of the five walking together in a park from late '66, with Brian in the big white hat, is instructive. Brian looks wild but great. Keith looks like he's trying to look as good as Brian and failing.
I've always been partial to rockers, like McGuinn here, who wear neckties.
no. I'll take Who's Next over most. they almost always ask me what was being said @ the time of the shoot. Very few from the golden age had much say over what was done with shots so all seem forced & commerce driven. Punk era ended that.
Band outfits...let's not forget about Paul Revere and the Raiders. ;-)
Paul Revere's Continental Army drag makes perfect sense as an answer to the British Invasion.
"And the absolute worst look for a rock band ever is..."
Paul Revere and the Raiders would have looked pretty silly doing the high step dance in regular clothes!
Best look: The Specials
Worst look: ABBA
Good: Residents, Ramones.
Bad: Kiss, hair bands.
C in California
At least they used the front of the horse. Great temptation notwithstanding
