The Boys Next Door - I Could See Me Dancing With You & There Is No Greater Sin - Cameo (1965)

"You boast about how you'll wreck her when you're through." For 1965, this was an unusually direct commentary condemning the sexual conquests of young men. Ah, The Boys Next Door from Indianapolis, Indiana. Sundazed reissued and beautifully remastered their catalogue in 1999, but this completely flew over my radar and the CD, like the vinyl, is long out of print. It's well worth hunting down. It seems that the group toyed with a variety of sounds and images in their mid-60s career. I Could See Me Dancing With You is a distant bt gutsy cousin of Dance Dance Dance by the Beach Boys. There Is No Greater Sin sounds more like a great lost Turtles song with chiming guitar sound throughout. Amazingly, both songs appeared on the same 45, making this one of the great unheard double sided pop singles of the 1960s.
