Merry Go Round at the Hollywood Palace

Emitt Rhodes and his criminally overlooked group, the Merry-Go-Round, on the Hollywood Palace.

Signed to A&M Records by Herb Alpert, they barely dented the Billboard charts, but should have been massive.

Rev-Ola re-released their eponymous debut album on CD in 2005, along with Emitt's 1970 solo effort, The American Dream and bonus tracks in 2005, under the title [i]Listen, Listen: The Definitive Collection[/i] (CR REV 110). It's a brilliant listen.

Nice find, a real walk in the past.

Loved the intro by Don Knotts, the Beatles garb, the whole experience

Glad you liked it, TCB Ted.

The bass player's military coat is a beaut.
