  1. Killer track, I was introduced to this tune by a British cover of it by The Affex which amps it up considerably (must’ve been those purple pills) before I’d heard the equally cool original here. Nice to read more about them!

    • Hi Bill
      I was the lead singer of the Affex and i have been searching for a copy of our version with no luck. Can you reccomend how to track it down as you say you have heard it.
      It is so long ago i dont even remember what label it was on all i remember is that it was a double A release and the other track was I Never Knew Love was Like This.
      I hope you can help
      Kind regards
      Dave Ryan

  2. I saw THE POOR at THE FAMILY DOG on S. Evans in Denver, and I always remembered this song, and how good they were. Thanks for digging this up.

  3. I was sitting around with Barry Friedman in his home on Fountain Avenue with two friends, one of whom was a singer/songwriter; the other was my former girlfriend who was now this singer’s girlfriend. We were all compatible. Randy Meisner walked in and said, “Who’s got the narcotics?” We were introduced, and Barry put on a new LP by the Charles River Valley Boys…playing “I’ve Just Seen a Face,” the Beatles tune, bluegrass style. This was in 1968. He played the opening over and over, as Meisner and he tried to get it down. Barry was also playing The Kaleidoscope’s “Please” from their first album. David Lindley was visiting too–along with a girl dressed as a cheerleader and a perfect double of W.C. Fields, who waddled around the living room muttering and drinking tea. Certainly an eclectic mix. When we left with Barry to visit a friend in the Hollywood Hills, I drove by Wallach’s Music City on Sunset and bought The Poor’s single, “She Got The Time,” and a week later, The Kaleidoscope’s LP. Still have them. Barry and my former girl’s new boyfriend began a deal with the friend in the Hills for the importation of some exotic herbs. A magic time and place….
