Doo and The Diddits Moody Thursday Night Garage

I love love love moody garage singles. I don't remember where or when I picked this up but it's great. The lyrics are really sappy (I don't even know your name...but I love you all the same") but the harmonies and guitar sucks me in each time.

I love this moody stuff! And no, your attempts at documenting your record collection are NOT feeble.

Thanks for the comments. I should probably revise that part. I actually would like to do a few more music blogs to hit the punk/indie obscurities in my collection but with graduate school starting I had better not bite off more than I can chew.

This is a great one - thanks!
Is this the flip to "I'm A Man" (as comped on Essential Pebbles 2)?

Please concentrate on the '60s/'70s part of your collection :)

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I have the other side listed in my database as "I'm Not A Man". I'll have to double check if I typed it correctly. I have a few pebbles comps but don't think I have that one. Keep a listening...I have more stuff like this

Hello,
My name is Denny Mitchell . I played bass on The Doo And The Diddits 45 record. I have old promo-photos etc. of the band . Also a few flyers and Atlanta Journal Constitution News Paper Clippings that I will be glad to attach and send anywhere you wish. You absolutely do have a typo on the name of the 2 side . It is I'm Not A Man instead of I'm A Man. This band was from Forest Park and Riverdale Ga.Doo Hickman lead guitar,Jimmy Avery Rhythm guitar, Denny Mitchell Bass and Gary Stone on drums.The tunes were recorded at The Le'Fever Sound studios in Atlanta, Ga. sometime in 1965. Jimmy is deceased .The rest of us still are involved with music but not with each other. We stay in touch. -Dennis M. Mitchell - denmark1625@att.net

Dennis, thanks for the information. If you email the clippings to me I will do my best to upload them to this posting. That would be WAY COOL!

Dennis, I was Alicia Gazaway, and Doo and the Diddits sang at my 16 birthday in September of 1965 at East Point Recreation Harris Street Park. Then at a couple of Sock Hops at College Park High school. I dated Doo a couple of times. Always wondered how you guys were.
