Sat. 6/2/18 9:08am Jeff:
Loved that Monkees’ track since I was given that album as a birthday gift in 1967. More of the Monkees was chock full of hits, but Sometime in the Morning touched my 13 year old soul deeply.
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 9:13am duke:
Always loved this Bros. Johnson track
Sat. 6/2/18 9:13am Rich in Bay Ridge:

So, does anyone know if Sal Valentino from the Beau Brummels (born Salvatore Spampinato in SF) is related to Joey Spampinato?
Sat. 6/2/18 9:57am Greg from ZONE 5:
Morning, Bob! You’re soundtracking my jaunt up to Sussex County.

Beatles '65 ("Sale") is a fine LP, in mono!
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:30am melinda:
I have fond memories of listening to this PPM on the 8-track player in my grandmother's car.
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:30am TDK60:
Dig the PBBB & PPM too!
Sat. 6/2/18 10:41am Listener Bop Monroe:
The Dave Clark Five totally steal the 'John' harmonica sound for 'Catch Us If You Can' a few months later in 1965. I can see how this would have turned him off, especially as he's now enamored with Dylan by that time.
Sat. 6/2/18 10:42am Listener Bop Monroe:
wow, was enjoying that!
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:43am TDK60:
I feel Lennon was better than Bob D. on harp. Taj Mahal likes John L.'s harp playin...
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:48am TDK60:
Not to put Bob D. down, like his music too; also, "Loser"'s harp might be influenced by Bob's!
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:49am WilliamfromDumont:
Definitely Butter on PPM with The Paupers.
♥ Sat. 6/2/18 10:53am TDK60:
"Another Side of Bob Dylan" -possible LP with closest influence on Fab 4 in '64, maybe?
Sat. 6/2/18 10:54am hudu:
Beverley track is hot. Sounds so fresh, hard to believe it's from '67.
