August 9th

A couple of 1967 classics premier on the chart this week … "Reflections" by the now newly re-named Diana Ross and the Supremes debuts at #50 (a touch of Psychedelic Motown???  Gotta keep with the trends, I guess!), "You Know What I Mean" by The Turtles (I love it, Howard Kaylan hates it!) debuts at #62, "Things I Should Have Said" premiers at #76 for The Grass Roots and one of the biggest hits of the decade, "The Letter" by The Box Tops bows at #82.  

Performing at The Sunberry Jazz and Blues Festival in England, Jerry Lee Lewis works the audience into such a frenzy that he is asked to leave the stage in the middle of his performance.  (Are we sure this was 1967 and not 1957?!?!?)

The Monkees perform at Memorial Auditorium in Dallas, TX.  Earlier that afternoon they took over radio station KVIL for their own special show.
