Good morning, Mr Bob and gathered Brainiacs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03am Guido from Cologne:

Good Morning!
This song made me long for the Help album when i was 8 years old.
Avatar 9:04am SmokinJ:

Tuff'to beat... Mornin'!
  9:07am melinda:

Great Hollies harmony
  9:08am Reggie:

Good Morning From San Dog(San Diego) California. This West Orange is missing Jersey...."but Savior Faire(WFMU) is Everywhere!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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).
  9:31am Stuart Rose:

Yikes. Slept late and missed almighty st all of this fine opening set.
  9:36am Listener Robert:

All this time I just assumed Hentoff was a NYer.
  9:45am dano59:

Me too Stuart. Woke up the ipod to Bob's dulcet tones ...
Avatar 9:55am SmokinJ:

Killer Brummels!
  9:55am Listener Robert:

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.
Avatar 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.
  Swag For Life Member 9:58am tadpoles:

Love Family. Thanks Bob for recognizing a vastly under-rated gem of a band!
Avatar 10:06am tuner fish:

great show, bob!
  Swag For Life Member 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!
  10:24am Stuart Rose:

Tadpole- "Year of our Lord Sgt. Pepper"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26am melinda:

alas, no jambalaya
  10:27am amylea:

My most favorite Pentangle song!!! Thank you!!
  10:39am josh norton:

Gil Evans cut was Sunken Treasure, rather than Bilbao Song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44am melinda:

I like hearing 60s bands I'm not familiar with, like the Ivy League.
Avatar 10:45am SmokinJ:

You're wise melinda ;-)
Avatar 10:45am Bob Brainen:

Thanks for correction on Evans!
  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!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am melinda:

@SmokinJ: bob's show has been great for that.
Avatar 10:50am SmokinJ:

Dig it..
  10:55am Chandler Lewis:

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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh - that's right! The IV's sang backup on 'I Can't Explain' : en.wikipedia.org...
  3:44pm DFW dedicated:

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