The Young Lions - We Better Get Along

Well, it's mid week here on the lovely east coast & i hope you all enjoyed my 1st mix.....???

I was hoping and planning on having DJ Prestige & DJ Jack the Ripper do my little radio show tomorrow on WLFR and get some plugs in for the Asbury park 45 sessions this Friday but from what I am being told from the other DJ's at the station turntable 2 is still not working so it would be a waste to have them come out since they were planning on spinning "VINYL".... ah, the best laid plans of mice & men...

anyway, I wanted to get something up today to help you all get over the "hump" so here goes:


I been sitting on this one for a while, waiting for the right time to drop it.
Today seems as good as any...

I see this described as "Northern Soul" on the interwebs but this also has a "Garage" type feel, not a punker mind you but elements of that sound.... I could not dig up much on "The Young Lions, and i don't think this is the same band as "Richard & the Young Lions"??? but found out that this is from 1965 according to a "Loma" records discography. If anyone has any info on this great cut please feel free to drop it!!!

Definitely nothing to do with
Richard and The Young Lions - they were an East Coast group, the group
on Loma were from L.A.

I don't know who was in the group but it's possible that Denny Rockwell who wrote 'We Better Get
Along" was a member. Rockwell
had a few singles on Tower in 1966.

I haven't heard them but they look like they might be interesting
judging by the titles - like "Booze
and Garlic Bread" and "No Mon - No Fun - Your Son"
