What a great show from these legendary performers. Thanks, PBS, for bringing renewed attention to all these groups, especially one of the great girl groups of the 50s and 60s, the Shirelles. One of their best, “Dedicated to the One I Love,” originated with the great 50s R&B group, the “5” Royales and its guitarist Lowman Pauling.
I recently posted on my Rockaeology blog at http://tinyurl.com/64t75gl the story of how Pauling’s pioneering use of feedback and echo influenced guitarists like Eric Clapton.
