Vintage Video: Paul Revere & The Raiders (1967)

Paul Revere And Raiders

Dick Smothers introduced Paul Revere & The Raiders as a “group of youngsters” for their performance (click here) of “Ups And Downs” on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1967, about two years before the controversial CBS program was cancelled due to its anti-establishment content. “Ups and Downs” was in the middle of the band’s string of eight straight Billboard Top 25 hits between 1965 and 1968. That was the peak of their popularity, although they would chart several more singles and continue releasing albums well into the 70s. Paul Revere & The Raiders appear in several playlists in Dr. Rock’s Playlist Vault.
