Friday Nuggets - "Time Won't Let Me" The Outsiders

This week's Nugget comes to us from the great rock'n'roll city of Cleveland and the great rock'n'roll year of 1965.

The Outsiders had a fuller, more pop sound than much of the garage rock of the time, with excellent vocal harmonies, and added strings and horns. But underneath was a terrific garage rock beat and a super tight foundation.  They had great hair too (check out the bass player in video below!).

Here they are singing over the recorded version on a 1966 TV show:

This song has always been a favorite of mine.
