I just got my copy of the T.A.M.I. Show (on sale last week on line at Best Buy's web site for $12.00 plus tax). It is awesome! It is even better than I thought it would be. It is one of those releases that lives up to its hype.

I've heard nothing but positive reviews for this one ... LONG out of print (and long overdue) ... hopefully when some of these companies see that there are folks out here who will buy this stuff, they'll begin to open more of their vaults and give us more memories to share! (kk)
re: BARRY McGUIRE:
Any mention of Barry McGuire is a great excuse to feature his long-neglected 1966 mini-hit "Cloudy Summer Afternoon (Raindrops)" -- nice combination of horns, piano, Barry -- perfect mood music for any rainy afternoon.
Plus, I had meant to mention it's also one of the few (only?) songs to "promote" newspaper reading -- and print journalists everywhere can use that support in these tough times!
WTG, Don ... now we can plug TWO of our Forgotten Hits Readers ... Barry McGuire AND Bob Greene, whose new book "Late Edition: A Love Story" talks in great detail about the demise of the daily newspaper!!! Good song, by the way ... I hadn't heard this one before! (kk)

re: THE BEACH BOYS:
I have seen the Beach Boys 26 times. Saw them last year in Dayton,Ohio. The show and the music were excellent. Mike may have lost a little, but he never had a great voice ... neither did Jagger. It's the music. When I hear all those old car songs it takes me back to a good time in my life. I thought Mile sounded pretty darn good last year, and I will see him this year in Indiana. Keep going Mike, lets have some FUN,FUN,FUN.
