Double Spin from 1967

Hi to all. I decided to highlight two lesser known bands from 1967. The Canadian Legends who were actually from Louisiana released a couple of 45's. The record featured today was groups first release in April 1967. "Just One Girl " has a catchy sound similar to The Outsiders "Time Won't Let Me". The Huntingtons from Hoquiam, Washington release there one and only 45 in May 1967. Both songs on the 45 are good. "You Better Mend Your Ways" has a garage sound . The group changes it up on flip side with the ballad "I Told The World".  All comments and information to help better remember these groups are welcomed.

  3. Thank you for your comments. The flip side on the Canadian Legends is The Monkees "I'm A Believer" but with different lyrics. Sort of a novelty feel to it,I think it about the Alabama Crimson Tide. I chose not to post it.

  6. Frank, I was unaware of that. Thank you for the info. I think the Canadian Legends did a very good version of the song.
