Jackie On ‘Hollywood A-Go-Go’

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Given that the Lesley Gore track was the most popular of the songs I posted yesterday, I went looking for it at YouTube. I didn’t find any Lesley Gore that didn’t have problems with brightness or with sound, so I looked elsewhere on the list from yesterday.

Here’s Jackie DeShannon, lip-synching “When You Walk In The Room,” most likely during her appearance on the television show Hollywood A-Go-Go in early 1965. Assuming this is that show, the other performers on the program that day were Johnny Crawford, Pat and Lolly Vegas (later of Redbone), the Platters, the Sinners, the Challengers and Donnie Brooks.

(I do love the Byrds-ish introduction to this recording.)
