Outrageous Fortunes

Wow, I mean, wow. I just discovered this fabgearbossswingin' clip of the Fortunes, one of the most underrated hitmaking British acts of the Sixties, doing their biggest smash, "You've Got Your Troubles," live in 1966:

Love how David Carr's organ fills in for the missing horn section. And note how perfect the vocals are, back in the days when bands were surrounded by Vox Super Beatle guitar amps and no vocal monitors. Today, bands have expensive vocal monitors and they still can't sing as perfectly on-key as these Birmingham boys.
