January 13th

The top premiers on this week's chart include "The Beat Goes On" by Sonny and Cher, the Motown classic "It Takes Two" by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston and the garage band classic "The Little Black Egg" by The Nightcrawlers.  

Also new on the chart this week are a couple of middle-of-the-road / soft rock gems … "Tiny Bubbles" by the late, great Don Ho (#97) and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" by The Casinos, one of my favorite songs of the whole year.  

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr go to the Bag Of Nails club in London this evening where they see Jimi Hendrix perform for the first time.  (McCartney would be blown away six months later when he saw Hendrix again, this time performing the title track from The Beatles' brand new album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" just four days after its British release.)  

Otis Redding ("Try A Little Tenderness") and Dino, Desi and Billy make appearances on "Where The Action Is".
