On the 'tube

The Tremeloes “Silence Is Golden”

1

Excellent song plus Gretsch in action

2

Nice of the cameraman to do closeups on the guitars.

I think the Tremeloes were the first official endorser of Marshall amps, 1963.

I liked "Here Comes My Baby" better. Happy sounding song about an unhappy subject. Great vocals, very tight band. One of the first bands I saw that sounded better live than on record.

Saw them on their first US tour. They had a Bird combo organ that I've never been able to find anything out n the interwebs. Used the first 4X12 amps I'd ever seen, but Fender Showman amps for PA---early '60s. Gear back then was "interesting".

Bet you have some great playlists, Polecat!

6

Being a vocal harmony style band I liked them the first time I heard them. Their music still works today IMO.

8

Off topic .. I know .. but the Mavericks did a good cover of Here Comes My Baby.

Always great to see anything from those days that's not lip-synched.
