I loved that record when I was a kid!
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'.
One of my favorite songs ever, extended version of course.
I’ve always liked that one.
The Neville brothers could probably sing it without using any effects.
Back to mono!
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.....
Huh! My first thought was "Greg Kihn Band".
Yeah this thread aint right without "The Breakup Song"
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.
I would guess only for the "more experienced" among us.
Good for you, and the extended version!
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
Which begs the question...
of course they do.
the problem is, most people don't buy like that anymore.
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
