Throughout the early to the mid sixties, the nucleus of Paul Revere & The
Raiders consisted of the Northwest rockers Paul Revere, Mark Lindsay, Drake
Levin, Mike Smith and Phil Volk. As the band moved to the Los Angeles area, they
soon connected with the legendary producer Terry Melcher and went on to record a
stellar number of garage band rock classics in a very short time.
With their first successful singles like Louie, Louie, Just Like Me and Steppin’
Out, all hitting the airwaves at the same time, Dick Clark recognized their
talent and soon had the band host the classic daytime rock and roll show Where
The Action Is, which made them more successful concert performers and album
Over the next few years, a huge number of hit singles, top charting albums,
concert tours and international television appearances developed Paul Revere &
The Raiders into a very influential band along the lines of contemporaries like
The Byrds and The Rolling Stones. To this day folks like David Bowie, Joan Jett,
Sammy Hagar, The Sex Pistols, The Flamin’ Groovies and The Monkees have all gone
on to record Paul Revere & The Raiders songs. Columbia Records knew the
importance of this entity then and soon honored their favorite sons with their
own best of album aptly titled Paul Revere & The Raiders Greatest Hits.
The eleven song platinum plus album consisted of their biggest chart pop singles
like the aforementioned Steppin’ Out and Just Like Me, plus later sixties
smashes like Hungry, Good Thing and The Legend Of Paul Revere. The historic
collection also offered some of their finest psychedelic tracks like Kicks, Ups
and Downs and The Great Airplane Strike.
