The song Under the Boardwalk was written by Arthur Resnick and Kenny Young. It was originally recorded the The Drifters, led by Johnny Moore, on the morning of May 21, 1964. The group's previous lead singer, Rudy Lewis ("Up On The Roof", "On Broadway") had passed away the evening before in his hotel room. This song was The Drifters’ last US Top 10 pop hit, although the group remained a popular attraction. It has since been recorded and performed by many artists, including John Mellencamp, The Jackson 5, Bruce Willis and [see clues].
From Highway 40/61, Take Winghaven Blvd. going east.
Pass Technology Drive and the shopping centers around there.
Turn right at the stoplight onto Phoenix Parkway.
Continue through the first traffic circle and pass the shopping area.
There will be large office building at the corner of Phoenix Parkway and Boardwalk Springs Place.
Turn left onto Boardwalk Springs Place and park in the far (east) end of the office building parking lot.
Cross the street to the end of the boardwalk to begin your quest.
(It’s really the waterfowl who are having some fun here.)
Continue along the edge of the swamp.
Pass two octagons.
Just before the boardwalk ends at a gazebo, the will be a set of stairs to your right.
Stand on left side of the top step and take a guess at where the box is.
It is blocked by something that also recorded Under the Boardwalk in September of 1964,
on an album called 12x5.
P.S. – Green or brown would be good for this stamp.
Please be very careful to reseal all bags and make sure they are tucked completely in the container before you rehide it just as you found it. Thanks!
