Doin' it again

The Feelies had great taste in music. The songs they covered make a solid mix CD. And here it is:

"Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me & My Monkey" was the Feelies second single. The song was a new wave song when the Beatles recorded it in 1968 so it was perfect for The Feelies.

After the first LP wasn't a hit, Stiff Records dropped the band and The Feelies went into a long layoff. Several Feelies started playing with a band called The Trypes who released a 4 song EP in 1984. George Harrison's "Love You To" is the second Beatles song to get covered.

The Feelies became a working band again, playing occasional shows and in 1986 they made an LP and an EP for Coyote Records. No cover songs on THE GOOD EARTH but the EP had Neil Young's "Sedan Delivery" and yet another Beatles cover, this time it was "She Said, She Said".

Also in 1986, The Feelies appeared in Something Wild, playing the band at the prom. The soundtrack did not include the band unfortunately. In addition to some originals, they played "I'm A Believer" & "Fame".

Stay tuned!

Um, me again.... (Just re 'She Said' and the 'Something Wild' tracks...). Must be a shiny stone or something I could offer as compensation for your trouble?
