  • Paul Revere RIP

    Died on Saturday aged 76. So many great tunes, soundtrack to some good memories for me.
    This one stopped me in my tracks first time I heard it.

    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

    Must admit I was never actually all that sure exactly what it was that Paul Revere contributed to the group that bore his name...I know he was nominally the piano player, but then I've heard Van Dyke Parks talk about working on the sessions...

    Well anyway...manufactured pop, proto-Monkees, spin-off project from 'Where The Action Is', whatever....doesn't really matter...I own three of their albums so they must have been doing something right. And it's all decent quality fare too...if Terry Melcher had produced 'Tighter' with the Byrds instead, it would be lauded by the 'Mojo' set as a jangle-psych classic now I reckon...

    So cheerio old fella...we can at least say with some certainty that you sang on this one...

    you can hear colours when they rhyme...

        RIP....

        I'm big fan of them, always loved their take on 'Louie Louie'.

          reminds me of some next level Curt Boettcher shit like this -

            SO MANY genius tracks it's hard to know where to begin.

            These three have perhaps been my most played over the years . . .



            To infinity - and beyond!

              Jumping back in, probably my favourite PR&TR 45

                Great band and proof positive that you should pay attention to what's in the grooves rather than what clothes a band's wearing. The first five Columbia LPs can be purchased without a second thought .... you won't be sorry!!

                I think Melcher may have used a session player on early tracks like he did with The Byrds. They were in no way manufactured having been going since 1958, with the name change to PR&TR in 1960. I think the uniforms were the record company's idea for something visual when the got the gig at Where The Action Is in 1965.

                So many great tracks to choose from - here's one of my faves:

                "Here comes the Fun Cooker!!"

                  Having just purchased a Paul Revere lp today it seems right to contribute to this thread and reminds me I must revisit the records I already have by the group.

                  RIP Paul Revere
