Rare finds II

Thanks for mentioning Neal. I used to love this song... No More Lies.

Thanks for the link. I'd actually never heard any Schon/Hammer before, despite being a big fan of Neal Schon. He does a good job singing. I'll have to check out more of their work.

I tripped over this incredible personal flashback!

Ain't That Just Like Me -- George & Teddy and the Condors

George and Teddy were popular peformers on the early to mid 60s nightclub scene in San Francisco’s North Beach. My brother owned, and I fondly remember, the album George & Teddy and the Condors: In Person From Ciro's Le Disc * (Reprise RS-6135).

And around the same time, Bobby Freeman revitalized his career with the the hit

C'mon and Swim **

Bobby Freeman played at the infamous Condor Club.

The Godmother of Topless Dancing***Carol Doda ‘swam’ twelve times nightly to Freeman’s accompaniment.

* [smaller]George & Teddy (Teddy & George ??) had recorded a different Live album [/smaller] At The Condor [smaller] previously. Ciro’s Le Disc was a popular club in Los Angeles, where The Byrds really first started taking off.[/smaller]

** [smaller]from Wikipedia: "[/smaller]C'mon And Swim [smaller] was written and produced by twenty-year-old Sylvester Stewart, later known as Sly Stone."[/smaller]

That's easy.

The first track 1982-A from this their first album is a good place to start and a perfect introduction to The Son's tight sound.

And Get High , of course, both for the happy memories and because it is a great groove.
