Happy 27th Birthday, OBC!

Thanks to all the boppers who check out this corner of the interwebs. Even though I want your lovin’, check out this great hit “Don’t Need Your Lovin’” by Chocolate Watch Band from 1967.

Don’t give your heart to no one else but Barbara Mason and her one-hit wonder “I’m Ready”, filmed live in 1966! While Mason teamed up with Curtis in the 70s to record a few tracks, the above video is truly her finest moment!

It may be Boxing Day, but OBC! is not going to try to sell you anything cheap. Get rich with the Chambers Brothers and “Time Has Come Today”. This bad boy is extended and admitted was filmed in 1970. Generally, posting anything post-1969 is cardinal sin in these parts, but this performance is too rare to pass up!

Proto-punk was kicking a new beat in 1966 and ? and the Mysterians were at the forefront with “96 Tears”. Another notch for history? These boys were one of first Latino rock bands to break it big!

Get lost in the blue-eyed soul of the Vagrants, with their one-hit wonder “Oh Those Eyes”. Long Island never sounded so good!
