5 comments on “Shanes – Chris Craft No. 9

  1. Thanks for the post, as I’ve never had a chance to hear the Shanes before. Last time I looked, which was admittedly a few months ago, I don’t think there were even any videos on YouTube.

    You must get hold of some Tages SOON. Their Studio album from 1967 is a psych-pop masterpiece (better in my view than many comparable releases by contemporary British bands, including Odeyssey and Oracle), while the album they made after they changed their name to Blond – The Lilac Years (1969) – I rate as one of the top ten albums of the ’60s. Both albums are absolutely first rate.

  2. I just came across a promo 45 of this single at an estate sale. It’s a Capitol promo with a light green label. Until your site, I could find no info on the band. I have yet to play it, but will check it out now.

  3. It’s weird. I just got this on a great download of 1966 songs, and as soon as I saw the title I started singing the song like it was second nature, but I have no idea where I know it from. Didn’t have the 45, didn’t know it was the Shanes. Probably had it on a mystery radio tape somewhere.
    Another great song in the download was “Sunny Girl” by the Hep Stars (with Benny Anderson) released in the US on Dunhill 4040, (only took me 20 years to find that one) John Sebastian had been a guest on Murray the K’s radio show and raved about them and the single from when the Spoonful were in Europe.
    And a song called “Balla Balla” I sort of knew but don’t know who did it.
