1960s: Mod and Soul

Some oldies for this week's belated picks. As much as I would have loved to have posted live performances (some are really boss!), the sound quality is generally lacking, so I'm going with the better audio quality video stills:

The Sonics - Have Love, Will Travel

Probably one of my more favourite songs from this genre:
13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me

Love that fuzzy guitar sound:
The Electric Prunes - I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

And now, from the ladies. Such a great voice:
Brenda Holloway - Every Little Bit Hurts

2 Live Crew sampled this song extensively on one of their songs:
Barbara Acklin:
