Always thought it was The Safaris. Never saw it in print before, but it makes sense.

The Safaris were the group who sang Image of a Girl in 1960. Also Land of 1000 Dances was originally done by Chris Kenner. It was a hit for Cannibal and the Head Hunters in 1966. Lastly Wipe Out was originally a hit for The Surfaris in 1963, and re-released in 1966.

Yes Wipe Out hit in 1963, but that doesn't change that it was a hit, again in 1966. Also, the Chris Kenner original was in 1963-so it isn't a factor in this quiz about 1966, whereas the Pickett cover was the biggest hit of the three versions, and it hit in 1966. Thank you for helping keep me on track, I do want these quizzes to be as accurate as possible.
