Paul Revere & The Raiders released their 5th LP “Midnight Ride” on May 9 (some sources say May 6), 1966. The album featured the U.S. top five single “Kicks.” and their version of “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”, a song The Monkees would have a hit with a year later.
All of the member of the band had songwriting credits on this record, but that led to some changes in the bands music style which led to arguments over which group members were to get their songs included on the band’s albums. This led to lead guitarist Drake Levin quitting the group following the albums release.
Happy 52nd Birthday to “Midnight Ride”!! To this day, kicks just keep getting harder to find!
