Ah, yes, those were the daze. Another artifact of the "Swingin' 60s" who spent time in the news, usually for being busted. I remember how it was considered a truism that LSD inspired Sgt. Pepper, Satanic Majesties, Mister Tambourine Man and many other pieces of music, helping usher in the age of psychedelia and psychedelic art and music. One of the more memorable tunes noting Leary

Her Broken English album was a revelation for me. Hadn't thought of her up until then beyond her cover of As Tears Go By, but Broken English was/is something else. I turned a number of people onto the album. A number of them flipped out when they first heard Why'd Ya Do It. It's rawness, combined with the energy of the song, was/is wild. I have almost everything she's recorded

For many of us here in the States he was part of the "English Invasion". I think "Gimme Some Lovin'" was one of his first, if not biggest hit here. Outside of this song and "I'm A Man" I don't remember any other songs by him that were big hits in the U-S. RIP, sir.

Wow. I love Hendrix, but, man, how he's been used to turn a buck. I guess if you're a completest you'd have or want all of these. I wonder if the same fate waits for the Stones, Beatles, Who and others, though, as long as band members remain alive, I doubt they'd allow the bastardization of their music and legacy.

Here's a utoob link to the album for those who might want to check it out. Regarding the recording of the album, I believe it was in Los Angeles. Re Bloomfield, I don't think he was totally stretched out on smack at the time the album was recorded. There's also an album called "The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper" which has some very good songs on it.

I wonder how many of us children of the 1960s have this packed away in our vinyl collection. This is still a great listen.

The Midnight Special was pretty cool at times. I had a friend call me one night it was on to say turn on the Midnight Special right now, there's this act called Alice Cooper that's on and you gotta check it out. Alice Cooper back then was different, to say the least. There was also a show called Friday's which introduced Michael Richards to many of us. He played some weird characte

Looking at the Cocker clip I can only wonder - where did he get that shirt and who thought it was hip, who processed his hair and is what the 1960s wrought - flouncy dresses on people dancing around a stage while someone lip syncs a song? Wait, don't answer that, we all know.

Should be "as they played gnat notes (thank you for this term Mister Zappa) that went nowhere". Mea culpa, folks.

OMG! Others remember Topo Gigo. I loved it when Topo appeared on Sullivan's show. In talking with others who grew up watching Sullivan's show, we've all wondered what happened to Topo once Sullivan's show ended. Used to love watching a Canadian comedy duo named Wayne and Shuster. Every Sunday night Sullivan's show was an American institution along with Bonanza featuring t

Ummm...the guitar freak in me says meh. Boring, from the patented rock star grimaces/faces as they played to the gnat notes (thank you you this term, Mister Zappa) that went nowhere. Of course, that's my opinion, others may differ.

So, I'm reading in the local rag about Peter Frampton's upcoming memoir. There's a statement from the story that goes: "There are countless anecdotes involving Frampton's famous friends, from David Bowie to the Beatles, with Rolling Stones bassist Billy Wyman playing the teen guitar hero's musical wingman of sorts and members of the Who dangling the teen by his ankle

Wow. This thread could generate another: Who was/is the best Bond? I love Connery in the first three movies, but then.... I think Daniel Craig, especially in Casino Royale and Skyfall, is the best and they are the best Bond flicks up until now. In Skyfall, I dug use of The Animals "Boom Boom" when the bad guy came for Bond. As for the other movie songs, yes, we all know "Goldfi

"I think the biggest difference in the 60s is that all we (the teens) had was our radios and, with some exceptions in the big cities, we all listened to the same music growing up." Yep, the age of the pocket size transistor radio. The Walkman of its day.

Don't know if I would buy and listen to a collection of music from Bond movies. Some songs were good, the rest, background. Of course, he says, with tongue in cheek, one must never forget such gems as this one from Dr. No. Catchy little ditty. Dr. No is, actually, one of the better early Bond movies, before they became popcorn entertainment. Someone posted all of the Bond books a few months

Nils wife, Amy, is on Instagram, and is fearless in her comments on various things. She also posts some nice photos regarding their living in Arizona and the locale. It's interesting that Nils is on Twitter as Amy has stated, more than once, Nils will not have an Instagram account. So, why Twitter?

No intention to start a political fight here. Just passing on something I read that made me think of what was on the radio back then and remembering all the different sounds we were exposed to.

Interesting read, IMHO, especially for those of us who were there, meaning back in the day. It's funny to hear the singer for the Spokesmen emulate the gravelly sound of Barry McGuire's voice. For me, I never heard of the Spokesmen or this song before this article. The article also brought back memories of how diversified pop radio was back in the 1960s regarding what went out over the

Ahhh...classic Rolling Stones. The colorization gets by but I'll still take the black and white original. Seeing Brian in both of the above clips, I remember how he was, at one point, the focus of the band in terms of coolness and looks for fans. I was also reminded of how much more guys seemed to dig the Stones back in that time as opposed to the Beatles.

Shirley Eaton was the one painted by Odd Job. Nolan was in the opening credits and publicity posters. Re the theme, here's Petty: I'm also partial to the Blue Stingrays version: Both of these occupy permanent space on my Walkman.

Recently passed. The opening credits sequence for Goldfinger is still one of the coolest Bond movie openings. I must confess, I have probably watched Goldfinger close to 75 times or more over the years. Still my fave Connery as Bond flick. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers do a great version of the theme song.

Oh, man, what a hoot. GS done as a jam band groove and a riff on Cirque du Soleil playing with fire in the process. Maybe Mick can pick up some ideas from this for the next Stones tour.

It was tragic that he was murdered at a relatively young age. His murder brought sadness to a large number of people. Just like Altamont, it was a symbol that many things in what we once believed had changed. He created some wonderful music with the Beatles and on his own. I will always be grateful for that. On the other hand, over time since his murder, he has been canonized, made a saint. I won
