Lazer says “Keep It On The Up Side”

Keeping things on the up side means putting on your head phones and listening to a couple of sounds that take you far away from today’s problems, issues, and divisiveness. In the mid 1960’s a group of guys from Atlanta got together and started making music that became known as Carolina Beach music. I didn’t know that was what it was called when I listened to it then but I loved it. The first one I guess is somewhat devoted to politicians in general called What Kind Of Fool. The second, if you are old enough to remember, will bring back some great memories and take you back and make you feel Young, Foolish, and Happy. If you aren’t that old you don’t know what you missed. Oh yes, the group was, and forty years later is known as The Tams

      I do Barbara. I have actually met the Wolfman a couple of times. He and a musician friend of mine were big buddies back in the day. Good times then.

        We couldn’t wait for the weekend, so we could listen to these guys while crusing around the town in our hot rods! Had a lot of fun back in the day.

    Wow. I have not heard these records in years. My mother had these and used to boogie to these songs and others while cleaning the kitchen. Good memories.

    It’s a little different with word press.Just copy the entire URL and paste it into your post.You don’t need to mess with the link/video stuff on the dashboard or the embed code anymore. Copy ‘n paste is all.

    Great stuff man, I’d mixed them up with the Tymes (so much in love).

    If it is like the other places I go, you just go grab the embed code on the bottom of the video and paste it into the body of your writing. I could be wrong though, that has happened once or twice before.

    Here is some of my beach music for the summer.
