19. THE PALACE GUARD - ALL NIGHT LONG

THE PALACE GUARD - 'All Night Long'/'Playgirl' (Orange Empire Records OE-331) Aug 1965

Now for my favourite musical genre (ie) folk rock/12 string janglers and none better than this gem by The Palace Guard who mixed merseybeat with folk rock to rather great effect on 'All Night Long' and achieved a deserved local hit in Los Angeles but remained unknown beyond southern California.

They were a big attraction in L.A, becoming the house band at the Hullabaloo Club in Hollywood despite wearing ridiculous Buckingham Palace style guard uniforms.

  2. The uniforms may look ridiculous, but that wall of Vox amplifiers makes up for any goofiness!
