Don & The Goodtimes - So Good (1967) 2006 Rev-Ola (with bonus tracks) Flac
Don & the Goodtimes were a Pacific Northwest group formed in 1965 by Don Gallucci (keyboards) and Bobby Holden
(drums), veterans of the band scene in Portland and the surrounding
area. They cut records for Scepter Records' Wand label and for the
Jerden label, and had some local success with the latter. The group
didn't find a national audience, however, until Dick Clark
chose them as the house band on his 1967 ABC afternoon program Where
the Action Is.
They made the move to Los Angeles and a contract with
Epic Records followed that year, along with a single and an album. Their
debut single, "I Could Be So Good to You," only got to number 56
nationally, although it did better in several key markets, ascending to
number 15 in Los Angeles and reaching the Top 40 in New York, indicating
that its impact was far greater on the two coasts than in the middle of
the country. The group lasted for another year, issuing three more
singles that didn't do nearly as well. Holden and bassist-singer Ron "Buzz" Overman quit in 1968, and Gallucci and the other members, Jeff Hawks (lead vocals) and Joey Newman (guitar), organized a new group called Touch, with Bruce Hauser (bass, vocals) and John Bordonaro (drums, vocals), a psychedelic band that got one self-titled LP out in 1969 before breaking up.
Nice pop band from the mid to late sixties that looking for fame in L.A. Give them a try if you don't know them.
