V.A. - Guys Go Pop! Vol. 1 1965

A new (2016 year) release from Teensville records puts the spotlight on a glorious year for music: 1965. Guys Go Pop! 1965 aims to showcase obscurities from male singers trying to score a hit in the year where anything seemed possible to top the Billboard charts. This collection features rarities from the likes of prior hit-makers The Duprees and Jerry Naylor (of The Crickets), future stars Cory Wells (pre-Three Dog Night) and Kenny Rankin, as well as total unknowns such as Robbie & The Revelations. 26 tracks in total, each displaying a dynamic and exciting sound. They all could have been hits! Featuring a 16 page full colour booklet with annotation and information for each track and rare label scans and artist pics.

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...
