19/4/14 – The Silkie – You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away – Beat Club – German TV – 1965

Video Of The Day

The Silkie with SealThis is a great clip of The Silkie performing the John Lennon produced, You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away on Beat Club for German TV in 1965. Although the band had split up in 1966, this song was a minor hit reaching No. 26 in the UK in September 1965 and an impressive No.10 on the US charts. For some unknown reason the band were unable to get work visas for the US and although they were booked to play on American Bandstand and Ed Sullivan, their tour was cancelled. If they had made it  to America they may have possibly become a household name like their contemporaries Peter, Paul and Mary and The Seekers. Now what is that on the gentleman on the right’s shoulder?
