Harvey Scales And The 7 Sounds "get Down"

Posted

With Little Richard's "Get Down With It" so popular these days, what about this one, Harvey Scales and the 7 Sounds "Get Down"?

Played out loud I bet it is awesome!

this song charted nationally.

on gemm there are multiple mint copies for ~$30 and I'd guess the only reason they aren't $5 is due to Harvey's popularity over the last few years, people probably bought up the $5 copies and sellers put up other copies for more. Harvey is a super cool guy, fun to hang out with too.

I've seen two different flyers from the late 60s with pics of harvey showing you how to do the get down, I'll see if I have a scan somewhere.

All-time favorite dance-floor destroyer, though it's now too fast for me to dance to at my advanced age. Agree with Bob that Harvey is a great guy to hang out with.

I don't understand. Are you asking me to type something into the gemm.com search for you and then highlight the prices and answers, take a screenshot, and post it here? Or maybe you are writing this just before you go to gemm.com and type in "harvey scales" in the search bar and hit "search" and then you're going to thank me after you see all the results? Probably the second.

Not a problem Bobba. I should have been clearer with my reply. You are right, there are plenty of good copies for sale. When I got mine a few years ago I was on a tight budget and trying to get one of the cheaper copies, which is what took the time. Got one eventually though for just a few pounds.

Best regards, Dave.

No problem, misunderstandings are too easy on the internet. Thanks a lot for your more adult response than mine

We used to do a dance just like that back in 66, but we did it to Alvin Cash's "Philly Freeze"

He wasn't in any version of the group that recorded, by the time the Esquires did their hit "get on up", he had left long ago. I think he just mentions that song to identify who the esquires are.
