"For Goodness Sake," the flip side of his 1968 single "Soul Sister Annie," is one of the most fuzzed-out wild garage-soul songs ever. I swear it's got a go-go beat, making me wonder if it inspired the whole genre. It's a definite hidden gem with its own cult following, and I wish he's release it on CD and try to get it a wider audience.

I saw Tommy Vann and the Admirals many times at Club Venus. The Admirals and another group called the Second Coming were my favorites. They really were good times!
