Billy Nicholls — “Girl from New York”, Nick Garrie — “Can I Stay With You”, The Tokens — “She Lets Her Hair Down (Early in the Morning)”: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — August 23, 2021

64) Billy Nicholls, “Girl from New York”

Another selection from one of the two greatest “lost” albums of the 1960’s.

65) Nick Garrie, “Can I Stay With You”

Another selection from the other towering lost classic of the 1960’s — Nick Garrie’s The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas.

66) The Tokens, “She Lets Her Hair Down (Early in the Morning)”

Before the era of bands “selling out” and letting their songs be used in commercials, a dreamy Clairol folk-rock jingle was expanded into a proper song oft recorded by artists including the Tokens (yes, of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” fame). Their single reached #61 in December of ‘69.
