Greetings!

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.
Hey Doc!

Always loved this Bros. Johnson track

So, does anyone know if Sal Valentino from the Beau Brummels (born Salvatore Spampinato in SF) is related to Joey Spampinato?

Hello Bob. That Moby Grape song is a fine one.

Beatles '65 ("Sale") is a fine LP, in mono!

I have fond memories of listening to this PPM on the 8-track player in my grandmother's car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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!
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/2/18 10:49am WilliamfromDumont:

Definitely Butter on PPM with The Paupers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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.
