The Lovin' Spoonful are guests on The Ed Sullivan Show tonight.  They perform their latest hit "Nashville Cats" as well as "Darlin' Be Home Soon", which will be their follow-up single in February.  

Johnny Mathis is also on hand … and he performs a medley of his hits that includes "It's Not For Me To Say", "The Twelfth Of Never", "Wild Is The Wind", "Chances Are" and "Wonderful Wonderful".  (All of these songs charted for Mathis ten years early in 1957.)  

The Monkees perform at The Cow Palace in San Francisco, California.  This concert was also filmed and recorded for possible future airing.
