The Birdwatchers


The Birdwatchers were a garage rock band from South Florida in the 60's. Originally called The Apollos, they changed their moniker after releasing the singles "Rockin' Horses", and "Walk By Myself" in 1964. It was the addition of vocalist Sammy Hall that solidified them. Blue Things-styled folk rock like 'It's A Long Way Home' and 'It Doesn't Matter' foreshadow the sound that would become their signature. The Birdwatchers hit their watermark with 'I'm Gonna Love You Anyway Read more on Last.fm
The Birdwatchers were a garage rock band from South Florida in the 60's. Originally called The Apollos, they changed their moniker after releasing the singles "Rockin' Horses", and "Walk By Myself" in 1964. It was the addition of vocalist Sammy Hall that solidified them. Blue Things-styled folk rock like 'It's A Long Way Home' and 'It Doesn't Matter' foreshadow the sound that would become their signature.

The Birdwatchers hit their watermark with 'I'm Gonna Love You Anyway,' a great folk-garage tune that should have found a home on one of the Pebbles or Highs In The Mid '60s volumes (the single actually bubbled under the Billboard charts, reaching #125 on September 3, 1966), 'A Little Bit Of Lovin'' and the single 'I'm Gonna Do It To You/I Have No Worried Mind,' which fans of early Ides Of March will love." They also did "Turn Around Girl" and "Way Up On Mars", both gems of the psych-garage 60's. Hall left to become a born-again Christian and the others continued on in a soft rock format much in the style of the Beach Boys. A retrospective by North Shore Soundworks called 'The Birdwatchers' was released in 2004. Read more on Last.fm.
