The controversial TV show The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour provided a perfect setting for Paul Revere & the Raiders in early 1967. Both the Raiders and the Smothers Brothers, (Tom & Dick) were at their zenith. Looking completely sleek, lean and mean in their cool and sexy streamlined white tights and hip-length white velvet jackets, tailored to the max, the Raider's showmanship and musical tightness on this version of their hit "Ups and Downs," is unsurpassed by any rock band of their day. Little wonder they were the most visible band of the 60's. Over 750 television airings. "This is America's number #1 show band" according to legendary keyboardist, Paul Shaffer, of the Late Night Letterman show. Band members included: Paul Revere,(keyboard) Mark Lindsay, (vocals) Jim "Harpo" Valley, (Guitar) Mike "Smitty" Smith (Drums) and Phil "Fang" Volk, (Bass Guitar & vocals). Other guests that night were Barbara Eden & Carl Reiner.
