The Invaders - On the Right Track (1967)

1965, Charlottesville, VA, United States
The Invaders were a sextet from Charlottesville, VA consisting of Steve Drumheller (drums, vocals), Aivars Osvalds (organ), Bobby Pollock (saxophone, vocals), Steve Pollock (guitar, vocals), Gilbert Roberts (bass), and Harold Roberts (trumpet, drums, harmonica). They played the college and high school dance circuit around Virginia and North Carolina, specializing in rousing covers of then-current r&b standards ("Stubborn Kind of Fellow" etc.), essentially doing the kind of repertory that Bill Deal & the Rhondells, working from the same neck of the woods, took onto the charts.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
