A moment to say thanks. Boss Logan provided several home-made mix tapes of his own. They contain some real gems and some never heard before stuff by yours truly. Shawn has been contributing for a while and I am deeply indebted. And thank you TomK for your past contributions, some of which I may be unknowingly using. Thanks to Mike Markesich for putting out the definitive and the only one of it's kind reference book on 60s garage. The book is a must for all you 60s garage devotees. Info can be gotten at http://www.pricelessinfopress.com/. It's worth the price. Last and not least, thanks for those of you who take the time to leave a comment.

7. "When I Woke Up This Morning" - Bop Chords - Holiday, 1957 - Harlem, N.Y.’s Bop Chords recorded only three single releases during an all-too-brief career at the dawn of the rock and roll era. To this day, there are no known photographs of the group. Yet R&B vocal group harmony fans fondly recall the sounds of The Bop Chords, their doo-wopping regional best-seller “Castle in The Sky” and the days when a group of untrained youngsters could go from a street corner to a recording studio to Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater in a matter of weeks.
