Anybody else like this guy back in the 60's ? I love Lightning Strikes, Rhapsody in the Rain, I'm Gonna Make You Mine and Two Faces Have I. Saw him at the "Big Bam Shows" from WBAM in Montgomery, AL a couple of times and at the high school gymnasium in Thomasville, AL once. Some insecure guys were put off by his falsetto voice but I loved it. He was pretty charasmatic.

I remember my sisters playing his 45's. My dad was country music only. Dad heard his singing, and told my sis he had been neutered. I liked him myself.

He and Del Shannon were two of my favorites in the early to mid 60's.

Used to love Lou Christie back in the early 60's (and Leslie Gore, Gene Pitney, Del Shannon, all of Motown, Shangri-La's and all those great girl groups, etc, etc) - Two Faces Have I was probably one of my faves by him. He still does a lot of touring with Rock'n'Roll Reunions types of shows (as does Leslie Gore).

Hey Bird:

Did Lou sing background vocals for Jethro Tull in Thomasville ?

Stopped in Thomaston yesterday on the way back from T-Town.

He played at our junior college when he was in the prime of his career.
It was a big deal at the time.

Both had wild falsettos. Shannon's at the end of "Keep Searchin" gets really high. Plus Brian Wilson, Frankie Valley, Jay Black ( Jay and the Americans), Roy Orbison. It seems falsetto was a requirement in the early 60s, a vastly underrated music period IMO.
