DON AND THE GOODTIMES - I COULD BE SO GOOD TO YOU


DON AND THE GOODTIMES - 'I Could Be So Good To You'/'And It's So Good' (Epic 5-10145) April 1967

This combo were originally from Portland but relocated to Los Angeles in October 1966 and quickly established themselves as a hot new teen act on the Sunset Strip. They were often on TV during this time frame appearing on shows including Lloyd Thaxton, Joey Bishop, Woody Woodbury, Hollywood A Go Go and becoming a houseband on Where The Action Is.


'I Could Be So Good To You' sees the group trading in their tuff North West punk sound for a commercial sunshine pop approach. The Beach Boys/Association influence is in evidence on this classy hit 45.

Members Don Galluci, Jeff Hawkes and Joey Newman formed Touch when Don and the Goodtimes faded from the scene.

  2. Thanks. It's also notable that Don Galucci went on to produce for Elektra Records, one of his noted productions being Fun House by the Stooges.
