Got any obscure (but good) rock and roll bands of yesteryear that you would like to feature on this thread?

Here is one, called "Crazy Elephant" from 1969. I have loved this song for decades, and I'm sharing it with you. Turn up your sound really loud and enjoy. You can even dance and shake your booty if you like, I did!

Jivin Gene and the Jokers played at my brothers high school prom. They were a cajun band from Port Arthur, Texas, and contemporaries of the Big Bopper

I couldn't fine a video of them playing my favorite of their songs, "Cherry Pie," but it was later picked up by Skip& Flip:

I love the comtemporaries from the 60's when my band was playing.

There was the James Gang (formerly The Webbs), Sole Survivors (Ticket
for an Airplane) and one of my very faves, The Swinging Medallions who
played the classic Double Shot of my Baby's Love

Why would you have wanted to?

Well for a child who lived out in the middle of nowhere and had nothing to listen to except hymns and classical music, he sounded interesting.

I was a very dull child.

I am pleased that I never heard of any of these people or bands other than the Big Bopper and Mitch Miller. I could have lived happily without Miller but liked the Big Bopper on Chantilly Lace.

Than you, Ann. It's the first time I have seen what the Big Bopper looked like. Also enjoyed remembering the difference in the way young people dressed back then and today.
During the early days of rock music (nothing like today's) I got to hear all the bands and singers mentioned by Lane because I was working at a radio and TV repair shop and writing sports and a column for a weekly paper. Some of the early rock that I didn't really care for at the time sounds beautiful now when compared to the modern stuff. I did enjoy the doo-wop that was popular back then. Today it seems to me that both pop and country music have hit rock bottom.
