The New York Club Scene
Alan Betrock, Phonograph Record, May 1974
THE NEW York club scene had its heyday during the mid-sixties. On Long Island, the Action House ruled over the suburban scene featuring house bands like the Vagrants, Rascals, and Vanilla Fudge, as well as a slew of second-line backup groups like the Hassles and Rich Kids. The rest of the Island was dotted with numerous clubs of repute like the Oak Beach Inn, Sammantha's, and Zero's, where dozens of up-and-coming groups paid their dues.
