    Is there a more classic use of tremolo? Anywhere?

    tommy james and the shondells are an all time american classic band that goes largely unnoticed by many who weren't there in the 60s'.

    I’ve always liked that one.


    The Neville brothers could probably sing it without using any effects.

    They were a real big part of the "60s Soundtrack" and deserve more credit than they get. I remember that they received consistent airplay on both AM and the new AOR radio format on FM. This one was as popular as Crimson and Clover:

    I, uh, surrendered my "innocence" (you know what I mean?) to the extended version, around 1969. (?) That song will (obviously) hold great significance for me.....;)

    Thank you. I was going to post that but-as I just found out-my antique IPhone won't work on YouTube as of yesterday.

    That would have been too predictable.

    Good stuff. I read somewhere that they ran the vocals through a guitar pedal

    Edit: cd notes say it was guitar amp tremolo, not a pedal

    of course they do.

    the problem is, most people don't buy like that anymore.

    Hi.

    Best observation I've come across for quite a while.

    Here's something I also came across a while back, just by chasing links on YouTube. Not the same kind of music, and not as good. But, still raw and untamed rock and roll. I ended up following the band link and buying the album for a pittance. Link doesn't work now I see.

    What a hook the finale was. It was fun to sing along with the tremelo:

    Cri-i-i-i-i-mson and cl-o-o-o-o-vah
    O-o-o-o-ver and o-o-o-o-vah
