Baby Boomer Fun: Gary Lewis and the Playboys 1965-66


Last week we visited with my favorite UK pop band, Herman's Hermits. This week, my favorite US pop band of the era, Gary Lewis and the Playboys. These guys compiled an impressive run of hits for a brief period of time, and they remain part of the soundtrack of our lives. I must point out the following:

From Wikipedia:
In 1965 Gary Lewis was Cash Box magazine's "Male Vocalist of the Year," winning against nominees Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra and was the only artist during the 1960s to have his first seven single releases reach Billboard magazine's Top 10.
Bio at The Playboys Website: Includes booking info and current gigs.
The Playboys MySpace Page: Has few tunes to hear and current info.
The Late Carl Radle's Website: Bass player who cast his shadow over two decades of rock and roll, worked with Derek and the Dominoes, Joe Cocker, Leon Russell, Delaney and Bonnie, Bob Dylan, and many more.

Video Clip: "Sure Gonna Miss Her", which topped out at #9 during 1966. I was 13.

PLEASE NOTE: Videos do disappear from the web from time to time. Lots more Gary Lewis and the Playboys performances can be found here.

ENJOY! 2mins 13secs
