yep! another tune that wouch have been perfect on "Better than the Beatles" or such..... quite strange sound for '64, ain't it?
I guess he's the same guy that recorded a "Bop a Lena" cover on Allstar?
Hi Michael and Mello.Good questions. I am going to try to dig up some info about the group. Stay tuned. I appreciate your comments
Mellow / MichaelJust an update to your questions. I was fortunate to make contact and to talk to Jim Friis today. He was extremely gracious and nice to answer some of my questions. We talked for a brief time about his rockabilly 45's with the Valiants and also the Jacemen 45. He informed me that the story that I reference that said that he was the vocals on the Jacemen's record was incorrect. He was NOT the singer for the Jacemen. In MTM's book TeenBeatMayhem , it show's that the record was released in November 1967. I removed the story from the site that I referenced to avoid any confusion. Mellow / Michael again I appreciate your comments and for bringing this to my attention.
.... funny the author's name (Beatle)! btw, I've just ordered TeenbeatMayhem....
Hi MichaelThe TeenbeatMayhem book was well done. I have enjoyed hours of reading/learning from MTM's years of research since it's arrival. Like many others when I leaf thru the pages I am amazed with the sure volume of information that is in the book. I think It will take me some time to digest it all. Thanks for your comments
