His song "I Knew You When" performed by Billy Joe Royal has always been a favorite of mine. RIP

I grew up in the South, where "beach music" was a mostly local phenomenon in cool places such as Ocean Drive, South Carolina. One of the great beach music (or any music) bands was The Tams. Back in 1962, they had a hit with Joe South's "Untie Me."

Sounds just as good today as it did when I was a Beach Bum swilling beer in The Pad in O.D.
