The Kingsmen later that year took "Louie Louie" all the way to top of the "Cash Box" national chart.

SUCH a familiar sound the second the beat starts!!! Reaching ALL around the globe!!!
Yay for the Kingsmen!!
And Thanks Mr. Stump and Mr. Addams for all your EXCELLENT reading material!!
Very interesting....ALWAYS enjoy the connections with KISN personalities too!

Love this blog. Keep doing what your doing and stay clear of political junk. Your mission is solid but nothing is going to change. The pics from the good old days are where its at for your blog.

Great story. The one take did produce a false vocal start after the guitar break. Not really noticeable on AM radio.

Great Louie Louie memories.

I went to school with Bob Lindahl's daughter and dated her a couple of times.

Who sang the original Louie Louie? Jack Ely of course. Then Lynn Easton co-opted the band and threw Jack Ely to the curb. The Kingsmen may have recorded the song first but the Raiders version was waaaaaay better.

BOBBY BORIS PICKETT SURE RESEMBLES KISN OWNER DON BURDON IN THIS PICTURE! EVEN THE SUIT!

Yes, the Raiders version was better, especially the saxophone. Drake Levin was a really good guitarist for the time, and you could actually hear Mark Lindsay sing the lyrics.

I think the Raiders version of Louie Louie was recorded before Drake Levin joined the band. If memory serves, Steve West was playing lead guitar for the group at the time.

At the time the Raiders recorded Louie Louie, the band included
Revere, Lindsay, Smith, guitarist Drake Levin and bassist Mike "Doc" Holliday, who was replaced in early 1965 by Phil Volk.

Don't know abou the ad shown here/above for "The Chase" club on the Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy., but "The Chase" nightclub owned by Ken Chase with KISN was, at least originally, on McLoughlin Blvd in Milwaukie and that's where The Kingsmen played almost every Friday and Saturday night for quite a while in the early 60's.

The Chase on Beaverton Hillsdale Highway was in the 70's....By the skating rink.

Roger Hart has sure worked hard over the years to keep the Rock 'N Roll scene alive and remembered in the City of Roses! Thanks Roger....we are looking forward to hearing your DJ talents soon on the return of KISN!

Actually The Chase on Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy in the 70's and the Valley Ice Arena had a bitter dislike for eachother. I recognize Ken and his wife in the photo (that was taken several years before The Chase in Beaverton opened) as being the owners of The Chase at the Valley Plaza. As a kid in high school I was working in the rink at the time. Prior to The Chase occupying the space over the rink, it was a restaurant called Asparro's West. It was owned by a guy named Johnny Asparro and he also had one on Grand on the east side.

Wanted to bring this to the top of the Stump again since another 'anniversary' has just past us by!! ......Thanks agin to Ken Chase for putting Portland on the map!!

'again'.... (disLIKE) misspelling words!
