Vejtables - I Still Love You (DEStereo)

Posted by Samantha
"The Vejtables" were a mid-1960s rock group from Millbrae, California. They recorded for the Autumn label and found limited success with such songs as "I Still Love You" and a cover version of Tom Paxton's "The Last Thing on My Mind". One interesting facet of the group is that lead singer Jan Errico also played drums for the group's recordings, making her one of the relatively few female drummers at the time. "The Vejtables" began their career playing bars and nightclubs along the El Camino Real on the San Francisco peninsula, even though they were still in high school at the time. Jan Errico actually changed her last name to Ashton because she thought it sounded British. She later left the group because their sound was evolving into a harder psychedelic sound, joining another San Francisco group, the Mojo Men, for which she sang a very audible harmony vocal on their biggest selling single, the Stephen Stills-composed "Sit Down I Think I Love You" (http://youtu.be/mPjyiIwslbg) from 1967. The Mojo Men eventually shortened their name to Mojo, and released an album and several singles on the GRT label before disbanding.
