Extraordinary slice of 1960s psychedelia

Never heard of the band, the song, or anything quite like it – so this represents a terrific discovery.

Modern Folk Quartet (MFQ) got started in Honolulu in 1962. The single, Night Time Girl, dates from 1966. As you will see, there’s quite a bit of background information included in the youtube video. Additionally there’s a brief wikipedia entry: I enjoyed reading that on re-forming in 2003, they toured Japan, and remain popular there, meaning that their official website is mostly in Japanese.
