Hello world!

We’ve been making some (beautiful) noise over at our Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/LAFPmusic- and thought that it’s about time that we add to that with a presence here.

One advantage here being, of course, that posts and comments don’t ‘roll down’ as they do on fb – you can always find what we’ve (and our Friends *** INCLUDING YOU) have had to say about the events and Artists that we discussed, and the old Music Posters (circa 1960s) that we’ve displayed.  Each of those discussion have been (or soon will be) ‘archived’ here on this 1960s LAFP Old Music Posters Project website, for your easy reference and a real trip back to the best past ever.

More than that, we’re taking the time on this site to expand on all the material that we transfer from our Facebook Page… adding even more interesting tidbits and additional LA Free Press Archive Items!  And whether you commented there or not… you’ve the chance to add to the discussion here!  Hope to see you soon…. will, we’re sure, add to the fun of it all icon smile Hello world!

Please don’t forget… here, like there, you are always welcome to request that we hunt down LA Free Press pieces from long ago – mentions of Artists and events that you may have an interest in – or even remember! – from long ago (our hey day being 1964 thru 1971).

EACH day, in fact, you can VOTE FOR 1960s ARTISTS that you would like to see featured…

VOTE HERE:  http://www.lafpmusic.com/whos-next-you-tell-us-vote-now-thru-midnight-sunday

Simon and Garfunkel Tom and Jerry solidified their act in 1957 and achieved a minor hit with the song 'Hey, Little Schoolgirl'.  Not bad for an act from Queens in the fifties.   Changing their names to Simon and Garfunkel they released their first hit of importance, 1964's 'Sounds of Silence'.  They went on to have a huge string of enduring hit records and albums which defined the folk rock genre and have pretty much won every musical award there is.  Read More
