The Minute Men (Argo)

In my opinion, The British Invasion , Surf and the U.S. Garage sound  of the 1960's were the best years of rock and roll. It was outstanding music.There were so many good bands. I think the Beatles were the greatest Rock and Roll group of all time. The Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was watched by millions. So many groups tried to imitate them.With that said in 1964 The Minute Men released a catchy surf sounding song "Please Keep The Beatles In England" lamenting that the Beatles had stole his girlfriend. Lyrics go like this "Before the Beatles starting fooling around I had the cutest little girl in town. She liked the way I combed my hair before but she don't like it anymore". The flip side "My Love Is Gone" is a good DooWop /Surf teen ballad.


  1. .. a real BEAUTY, incredible that this ditty has non appeared yet on Fab4-novelty samplers such as Not The Beatles, I hate The Beatles, Better than the Beatles ecc.... excellent find, Johnny, and a perfect start off for my 3rd (private) Artyfacts-compilation!

    ciao from Milano!

  2. Yea, it is little surprising that it was not considered worthy enough to included in of any those compilations that you mentioned. I love the beat of the song.
