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.
