The Tangents - Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go?

There is something I love about this version of Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go? It's so very aggressive, so very straightforward, so very Los Angeles. And for good reason, The Tangents hailed from the city of angels and played the clubs on and off of The Strip often. Terry Topolski, Bob Shelton, Warren Brodie and Jim Janesick recorded their version of Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go? for the Hollywood based Impression label in the Spring of 1966, about the same time The Leaves put out their third version. I see that Dino Valenti was still getting writing credit despite him not really writing the song.

Impression Records put out some kick ass stuff like The Sloths and The Dirty Shames.

Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
