These cool and colorful Detroit rockers, who once had Led Zeppelin open for them at Detroit’s Grande Ballroom, reached the top ten with their cover version and earned a gold record in 1970.  Their psychedelic tinged performance is stunning in its power and drive. Tell your children to do what they have done.

Rising stars of the British Rock Invasion scene, this band whose name starts at the beginning of the alphabet, enter the charts at number 16 with their debut single on this day in 1964. It’ll be number one in two weeks time. Their record label sends boxes of Animal crackers to American DJ’s as a promotional gimmick.
