Norman Blake Salutes The Paragons And "Abba"

Hello all-

Imagine my surprise as I'm reading the new issue of Mojo Magazine 60s, as Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub is listing his favorite songs of the 1960s. The first song listed? "Abba", by the Paragons. A song, and a band that we featured in our NC 1960s Rock & Roll book. Wow! Thank you, Norman. And how is it that I still haven't seen the Fannies live yet? I must remedy that, immediately.
And yes, the video of the Paragons playing "Abba" on The Village Sqaure TV show in 1967 is awesome. Let's play it now!
