I want to buy some of those European and South American 45's with the picture sleeves. I have always liked her look and her two radio songs. But it was not untill today that I fully realised what a big international star she was...everywhere but the United States. Kinda like Kylie Minogue is.

"Cara Mia"-Jay And The Americans..."I'll be your love 'till the end-of-tiiiiiiiime"
"5 O'clock World"-The Vogues..."In my 5 o'clock word when the whistle blows, no one own a piece of my time"
"The Rain, the Park & Other Things"-The Cowsills..."I love the flower girl, oh I don't know just why, she simply caught my eye"
"The Pata Pata Song"-Miriam Mekeba...can't speak the language
"Green Tamborine"-Lemon Pipers..."Drop your silver in my tamborine, help a poor man fill his pretty dream"

1) Piece Of My Heart {Janis Joplin}
2)Fire {The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown}
3 Kick Out The Jams {MC Five}
4 Born On The Bayou {CCR}
5 East Side Story {Bob Seger}
These are some of my favorites from them 60's, I was sent to Vietnam in '68 and the music of those yrs has very special meaning to me, I was laying on top of a bunker listening to AFVN radio when I first heard Janis Joplin singing Piece of My Heart, the 1st time I heard it I thought the singer was a young guy with a very high and raspy vioce, I didn't find out it was a girl until I got home. The Bob Seger song I listed may have been a regional hit from my area (Detroit) but it was the 2nd song that I heard that had a FAT FUZZ TONE effect (the other being Satisfaction) and as a budding musician (I was 17 in 1967) The Fuzz was the 1st Stomp Box I bought with my own money. Check out the Arthur Brown song Fire on Youtube and tell me where you think Alice Cooper got his idea for his make-up..... also check out Bob Segers' east Side Story, it has that distict 60's Rock Groove and was the song that broke Bob (musically). As a Singer I also liked The Hollies (Bus Stop, Carrie Ann) The Turtles (Elenor, Happy Together) and Beau Brummels (Just A Little, Laugh Laugh). The 2 lead singers from The Turtles (Flo and Eddie) joined Frank Zappa and The Mothers in the late 60's as Floresent Leach & Eddie. I also must not forget to mention the Great Texas Blu-Eyed-Soul- Brother and most entertaining Showman of the era..... the incomparable Roy Head. Someone mentioned Talk Talk... now that was one HEAVY tune... I mean HEAVY, again... it had that Thick Fat Fuzz lick as the Hook.

I Mentioned "Talk Talk". And yes it IS still heavy. It could probably be released today and everybody would think it was a modern tune.

1) Fire {The Crazy World of Athur Brown)
2) Kick Out The Jams {MC Five}
3) Piece Of My Heart {do I have to tell you}
4) White Rabbit { Jefferson Airplane}
5) In-A-Gada-Da-Vida {Iron Butterfly}
I have so many favorites that I got all wound up trying to write them down... I changed my mind so many times I got tired of backspacing and re-typing so I settled on these... I must post this now or I'll start changing it again... Someone listed Talk Talk in their favorites and I started thinking about it and added it to mine at one point but this is it.......... I STOP NOW.

Mathew V. August: Great list! It's as if you have raided my cd collection. I am a huge Buffalo Springfield fan. Like a lot of people I own their greatest hits collection. Do you own their box set? I was considering purchasing it someday soon. I think Rhino put it out years ago. I have The Rascles 2 disc greatest hits which is excellent. I am from Long Island originally and have have been a big fan since the age of 5 or 6. I got to see Gary Brooker live with Ringo Starr back in the mid 90's and he blew me away. I got into Procol Harem kind of late in my life, late teens early 20's. Thanks to movies like The Big Chill I have discovered a lot of great 60's music like that. I own that tune on a Brittish Invasion cd compilation called Britz Blitz manufactured by Silver Eagle Records back in the late 80's. A great collection, recorded mostly in mono. Not a lot of remastering back then, a great collection just the same, worth getting if it's in print still.

Mathew V. August: Great list of tunes there! I have been a fan of these bands in my childhood or early teens. Martha and The vandellas is my favorite girl group from Motown. I love all Brittish invasion tunes. Freddie and The Dreamers and Herman's Hermits were two of my favs from that time. I think I have liked the Tremolos since the age of 5, although I only know that song, the same with We Five's You Were On My Mind. Lulu To Sir With Love is one of my all time favorite tunes. I hear that she is still performing today, and still has a great voice today, and performs in England as well.

Mathew V. August: I still prefer Paul Simon's version of the 59th Street Bridge Song better than Harper Bizarre's version, which was a bigger hit I think. Have Simon and garfunkel ever recorded the song live? I never knew that Red Rubber Ball was written by Simon it's one of my favorite tunes. The Cyrcle always reminded me of the band who recorded Western Union by The 5 Americans I think.

Mathew V. August: Cool 60's psychadelia! I think Wear Your Love Like Heaven is one of Donovan's best and prettiest tunes. I think it is underrated. Along with Catch The Wind which I think was more popular along with Jennifer Juniper. I love See Emily Play. It was my favorite Syd barrett Floyd tune. I still love Status Quo. They are so underrated here in the US. I have the Count 5 tune on a Nuggets collection from Rhino records, I love that label. I like Blue Cheer but never have heard Out Of Focus,maybe I will check that tune out somewhere on line if possible.
