John Goddard, MVFF’s grand master of all things music, veejays from his personal collection as he takes us back half a century (gulp!) to the West Coast, where the seeds of revolution were being sown, both in music and on the groovy turntable of life. In the Northwest, no one agrees who recorded "Louie Louie" first: The Kingsmen or Paul Revere and The Raiders—but you can guess who played it longest. In San Francisco, The Beau Brummels said "Laugh, Laugh;" Bobby Freeman enticed us to "C’mon and Swim;" both were produced by Sylvester Stewart, aka Sly Stone. In LA, Darlene Love and The Blossoms were just, well, 20 feet from Phil Spector (recording "He’s A Rebel" as The Crystals), while Mamas, Papas, and Brothers who were Righteous joined Sonny and Cher in upping the ante musicallyand sartorially. From the mellifluous to the marvelous, from the funky to the frenetic, the left coast was shakin’ and shimmying: C’mon everybody!
