Now Playing At Jaynes: Major Lance
Dig 60’s Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions? Well check out protege Major Lance from Curtis’ Curtom label. This clip is live with no lip sync. The band is somewhere back in the shadows with a particularly mean sounding bari sax player prominent in the mix. Can’t explain the beret’d terrier. This song, “Monkey Time” became a northern soul dance favorite during the mod revival of the 80’s. San Diego was one of the core hubs of this revival with bands like the Crawdaddys, The Event and the Tell Tale Hearts.
