May 21st

Back at Expo '67, The Ed Sullivan Show brings us Petula Clark, who performs "Don't Sleep In The Subway", "This Is My Song", and a medley featuring "I Know A Place", "Je Me Sens Bien", "My Love" and "Downtown".  The Seekers are also on hand and sing their big hit "Georgy Girl".  

Sonny and Cher are among the guests on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour this week.  

"Don't Look Back", a documentary covering Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England, strikes box office gold for a week.  (The film also features appearances by Joan Baez and Donovan).  The film is one of the first documentaries to spotlight a popular music artist, a fairly common practice today but a ground-breaking concept for 1967.  (This ain't no "A Hard Day's Night" or lightweight Elvis musical fare!)
