The second installment of my attempt to locate video clips of the songs appearing on the Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968 box set (You can find part 1 here).
Not everything on the Nuggets box set can be found on YouTube, but what is available is a real treat.
Starting off with one of my favorites from Nuggets, below, The Music Machine doing their great “Talk, Talk” number on Where the Action Is:
The Turtles perform Warren Zevon’s “Outside Chance” on The Lloyd Thaxton Show, 1965
“This is my Happening and it freaks me out!” The Strawberry Alarm Clock do “Incense and Peppermints” during the (brilliantly edited, utterly genius) party scene from Russ Meyer’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls:
The Outsiders: “Time Won’t Let Me”
There’s sadly no music video or performance clip of Kim Fowley’s 1965 LSD novelty record, “The Trip” but I just had to include the song that Julian Cope’s Head Heritage blog called “flaming dogshit on the doorstep of your mind.” Forever.”:
Sky Saxon and The Seeds do “Can’t Seem to Make You Mine” on American Bandstand:
The Beau Brummels mime along to “Laugh Laugh” on Shindig!
The Five Americans performing “I See the Light” on Shivaree:
The Merry-Go-Round (featuring Emitt Rhodes) on The Hollywood Palace... with Don Knotts!
“Steppin’ Out” by Paul Revere & The Raiders on Canadian television’s Swingin’ Time:
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band do “Diddy Wah Diddy” on Dick Clark’s Where The Action Is:
Syndicate of Sound’s “Little Girl” promo clip:
Blues Magoos, “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet”
The fictional Max Frost & The Troopers’ “Shape of Things to Come” from the film Wild in the Streets.
