You Were On My Mind

Who played the chiming guitar in this? I've watched it over and over, and I can't tell. The best I can say it's one of the two guys in the back. I suppose that the video really uses a dubbed in track, in which case I will never know. The last few seconds of this are just great.

And, please tell Beverly that I remain devoted to her. It's just that Belinda takes up most of my time these days.

Wow, haven't heard that song in ages....I think I was 10 years old at the time. Are you referring to the girl in the group, Beverly Bivens? I know they made a lot of money off this song, which was originally recorded by Ian & Sylvia. Just around this time, I was getting some vague stirrings while watching "I Dream of Jeannie"...there was something about Barbara Eden that was making me feel a little uneasy ;D

Ah crap, Skip, don't encourage him. You'll set off his Venus of Willendorf obsession again.

Back left on the Rickenbacker though it was dubbed for sure.  This was damn scary.

Honestly Al, I would never suspect you of exhibiting such prurient interest in paleolithic Hallmark ornaments. On the other side of the story, I found the following that might confirm moof's observation. This from the We Five official website...also see attachment....

Bob Jones joined the pre WE FIVE Ridgerunners shortly after meeting Mike and Jerry at the University of San Francisco in 1963. His electric 6 and 12 string guitar work is one of the signature sounds of the "You Were On My Mind" and "Make Someone Happy" albums. In addition, Bob recorded five albums with Michael Bloomfield on which he played drums, guitar and sang. They also toured the United States and Canada for ten years including playing the Newport Jazz Festival.

Chimes guitar player... that's the sound of the Ricky guitar...  Rickenbacker...  Like the one Roger M played in the Byrds (and still does).

Remember this group quite well, A&M Records and their manager was Frank Werber of the Trident music group...
