THE VIBRATIONS - GONNA GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU


With a long and varied career (beginning in the doo wop years as The Jay Hawks who hit with "Stranded In The Jungle" and also a detour as the Marathons and the hit "Peanut Butter"), the Vibrations were a consistently exciting group with always excellent group vocals and songs that, more often than not, were uptempo pounders.

While the Vibrations recorded for two of the Chicago soul label biggies, they were in fact a Los Angeles group. This record features a great Motown style baritone sax solo and superb lyrics.

from 1966...

The Rolling Stones had them as a supporting act at the San Jose Civic Auditorium, early December 1965...exactly 45 years ago.

While it doesn't hurt a lot of records these lyrics don't actually make sense. Isn't he singing "can't get along without you"?

The lyric appears to be, "I bet you can't get along with you now". Either it's a good record with a nonsensical lyric (plenty of those around) or I need my ears syringed.
