The votes are in.
Last week, with a swinging €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you for your favourite underrated gem from the 1960s.
You answered in your very groovy hundreds.
At the risk of repeating myself, it was yet another trove of forgotten masterpieces, perhaps our best.I hope soon to compile your entries of the past seven weeks into a decade-by-decade playlist.
But first, there could be only one 1960s winner…
Do I Love You (Indeed I Do) by Frank Wilson
Originally released in America in 1965, only 250 or so copies of the single were made, but the song went on to have huge success across the atlantic years later on the Northern Soul scene. It is one of the most valuable vinyl records ever as only two are known to be still in existence.
And I forgot to mention, it’s an absolute TUUUUUUUNE!
Strange Mysterious Sound by The Spike Drivers
My choice, not for the voucher, more for you to enjoy, you might like it. It’s properly obscure.
Bad To Me by Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas
Janet, dreams of big guns writes:
Not underrated in my gaff, my Dad sings this at my Mother whenever she’s got the hump, he seduced her back to NI by sending recordings of his crooning to Scotland back in the day, It sometimes still does the job.
Nick says: Thank you, all!
