Just mentioning to a friend.. that I saw the Swinging Blue Jeans in Cambridge many, many years ago in support to Gene Pitney. The group had begun in 1957 as a skiffle group called the Bluegenes. They were a sextet which included a banjo, a washboard and an oil drum bass player, the amazingly named Spud Ward. They became a four-piece in the 60’s , part of the Merseybeat and were best known for the “Hippy Hippy Shake”, “Good Golly Miss Molly”, and “You’re No Good” all released in 1964.
So many memories!!!
