Coverinfo

1965-10-00 - RECEPTION HALL, MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ

One show, with The Castiles the sole act on the bill. The 27 song titles of this show plus two titles that are illegible have been culled from a surviving inventory/setlist document
that was originally in the possession of a member of The Castiles. This list is believed to have emanated from a wedding reception the band performed in the autumn of 1965. With the exception of "Sidewalk" (co-written by Bruce) all of the songs are covers of other artist’s material, with the most recently released song at the time being Sonny & Cher’s "I Got You Babe" (July 1965). The setlist includes numerous 1964-1965 'British Invasion" hits by the Stones, Yardbirds, Kinks, Zombies and Beatles - a clear indication of the kind of music the band was playing at teen gigs. The high proportion of 1950s ballad material in this particular show (sung by George Theiss, not Bruce) is likely the result of it being a wedding, with manager Tex Vinyard making sure his boys also catered to the older relatives in attendance. These include the G-Clefs’ "I Understand", Acker Bilk’s "Stranger On The Shore", Don & Juan’s "What’s Your Name" and Anton Karas’ "The Third Man Theme". There is no circulating audio of any of this performance . Frank Marziotti has recalled the bride's choice of song was the jazz standard "Moonglow". 
 
 
 
 
 

Songinfo

'Good Times, Bad Times' is a song taken from the second American studio album by The Rolling Stones, 12 X 5, released in 1964 following the success of their American debut The Rolling Stones (England's Newest Hit Makers), released concurrently with their UK debut The Rolling Stones. 12 X 5 is an expanded version of the EP Five by Five, which had followed their debut album in the UK. The album, like its predecessor, largely features R&B covers. However, it also contains three compositions by the developing Mick Jagger/Keith Richards songwriting team, as well as two group compositions under the pseudonym "Nanker Phelge".

Lyrics

There've been good times
There've been bad times
I have my share of hard times, too
But I lost my faith in the world
Honey, when I lost you
Remember the good times we've had together
Don't you want them back again
Though these hard times are bugging me now
Honey, now it's a sin
There's gotta be trust in this world
Or it won't get very far
Well, trust in someone
Or there's gonna be war
