1973 Kenny Young Last Stage for Silverworld

1973 Last Stage for Silverworld
Kenny Young
Louie Shelton - Guitar

On the heels of David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, songwriter Kenny Young reprises the 1964 Drifters hit he co-wrote with Artie Resnick on this 1973 science fiction-styled album released by Warner Bros. It's an ambitious and effective project that comes with elaborate packaging and some help from Albert Hammond, Andy Kim, and the Drifters' Gerald Garrett. The remake of "Under the Boardwalk" opens up with what sounds like a transistor radio playing the familiar song.
