Tommy James and the Shondells are an American rock band with several hits in the late 1960s including (My Baby Does the) Hanky Panky, Mony Mony, and Crystal Blue Persuasion. Of one of their 1968 hits, Frank Zappa said,

[I]n the past I had said a bunch of bad things about Tommy James and the Shondels, you know. But, when I heard 'Crimson And Clover,' I said, 'Well . . . they really got something going for 'em.' That really turned out to be a winner.[1]
