Good morning, Mr Bob and gathered Brainiacs.

This song made me long for the Help album when i was 8 years old.
Sat. 1/14/17 9:04am SmokinJ:
Tuff'to beat... Mornin'!
Sat. 1/14/17 9:07am melinda:
Great Hollies harmony
Sat. 1/14/17 9:08am Reggie:
Good Morning From San Dog(San Diego) California. This West Orange is missing Jersey...."but Savior Faire(WFMU) is Everywhere!"
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 9:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
The UK version (tempting to say - the 'real' one) of 'Help!' - shows what a strong & important album it is - deserving even of some of 'Rubber Soul''s glory.
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 9:18am Guido from Cologne:
The UK versions are the real ones.
(Though I love the Capitol Reverb on "I Feel Fine" - since the Capitol-re-mix is the virst version i heard).
Sat. 1/14/17 9:31am Stuart Rose:
Yikes. Slept late and missed almighty st all of this fine opening set.
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 9:36am Listener Robert:
All this time I just assumed Hentoff was a NYer.
Sat. 1/14/17 9:45am dano59:
Me too Stuart. Woke up the ipod to Bob's dulcet tones ...

My routine now is to listen to Jerry Hickey on WOR before Bob's show, if I'm up early enough. Today I was & caught Hickey from the beginning. I learned from him today that Hickey is the most common surname in Ireland. Yeah, I know it's basically an infomercial, but I trust him to play it straight, and the subject matter interests me as a biochemist.
Sat. 1/14/17 9:57am Nanker de Tucson:
I always considered the U.K. version of The Rolling Stones "Aftermath" as the "real" version. Not sure how / why Decca/London made the N America version such a poor step-brother version.
Sat. 1/14/17 9:58am tadpoles:
Love Family. Thanks Bob for recognizing a vastly under-rated gem of a band!
Sat. 1/14/17 10:06am tuner fish:
great show, bob!
Sat. 1/14/17 10:08am tadpoles:
Me too Bob. "Music in a Doll's House" their first is also brilliant - also considering it came out in 1967 the year of our lord Sgt. Pepper!
Sat. 1/14/17 10:24am Stuart Rose:
Tadpole- "Year of our Lord Sgt. Pepper"
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:26am melinda:
alas, no jambalaya
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:27am amylea:
My most favorite Pentangle song!!! Thank you!!
Sat. 1/14/17 10:39am josh norton:
Gil Evans cut was Sunken Treasure, rather than Bilbao Song.
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:44am melinda:
I like hearing 60s bands I'm not familiar with, like the Ivy League.
Sat. 1/14/17 10:45am SmokinJ:
You're wise melinda ;-)
Sat. 1/14/17 10:45am Bob Brainen:
Thanks for correction on Evans!
Sat. 1/14/17 10:47am Mikey from NC:
Bob - that Pentangle track was out-frickin-standing! Never knew what I've been missing with these guys. Just checked Amazon - used cds of that Lp go for a minimum of $47!
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Watched IvyLeague sing it on YT, some '64 NME awards concert or something - slightly funny-looking three guys different heights - but they brought those vocals Live.
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:50am melinda:
@SmokinJ: bob's show has been great for that.

Just drove down the NY State Thruway listening since Driva Man. Damn fine show. Thanks for making the Hudson Valley suck a whole lot less.
♥ Sat. 1/14/17 10:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Oh - that's right! The IV's sang backup on 'I Can't Explain' : en.wikipedia.org...

Bob, check out the last 5 minutes of Alexander Courage's music for 'Day of the Outlaw' on youtube. Exceptional!
