    All Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller’s work. How about Stand By Me, Jail House Rock and so many others. For Young Blood we have to also recognize the late Doc Pomus. He was such a great lyricist too.

    The very first real concert I went to was "The Edgar Winter Group" when they were on their "Frankenstein" tour. They put on a great show and came out for SEVEN encores!

    Here is a song from an early eighties band from Bangor, Wales. They only put out one album, "Contact You", but it was a good one...

    By then Derringer was a veteran who previously was in the McCoys, who had a few hits in the 1960s.

    They were kinda obsolete by the time of this LP:

    Yep, "Hang On Sloopy" was probably the biggest hit for them, .... about 1965. I saw Rick Derringer at a club I used to play at here in Milwaukee called The Palms. It was about 1976-77 when he was on tour for his "Derriner" album. He and his band were phenomenal! One group of guys I used to jam with would cover "Beyond The Universe". I don't believe I could muster up those chops any more, ..... though my 16 year old son probably could. He had pretty much mastered the drums for "Hot For Teacher" at age 9 as well as plenty of others. Another group I was in covered "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo".

    Every Breath I Take --Gene Pitney (1961)-- This song was written by the husband and wife team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King and produced by Phil Spector, featuring his wall of sound.

    I saw Gene Pitney live in concert in 1964. He was also a great songwriter. I recall he wrote He's a Rebel which was made famous by Phil Spector, Darlene Love and the Crystals.
