February 13th

The Supremes appear (along with host Jimmy Durante and guest Jimmy Dean) on an NBC presentation of  "The Ice Follies".  They perform "Stop! In The Name Of Love" and "You Can't Hurry Love".  

Tonight's episode of The Monkees finds The Pre-Fab Four working at the circus.  TV Guide reports "This episode marks a return to the Big Top for Monkee Micky Dolenz, once TV's 'Circus Boy.'"  The Monkees perform "She" and "Sometime In The Morning", two tracks from their brand new (and now #1) album.  

The Beatles begin work on George Harrison's "Only A Northern Song", which was intended to be his contribution to the new "Sgt. Pepper" album.  However these tapes are later shelved (in favor of the far more fitting "Within You Without You"), only to be resurrected nearly two years later for use in the "Yellow Submarine" soundtrack.
