    • Thanks… next up 1970-and since I’m starting it on January 1st- will only have to do two songs a day– and going to make it better.. I hope 1970’s music is at least a match for 1969s.

    • That will make it easier. I think until the mid-seventies it does a good job with a little more soul.
      The mid-sixties though is in a league by itself.

  1. I really like the first one. Betty Everett sounds like Aretha here! I like the Grand Trunk one also. It’s been so long since hearing them and had forgotten how good they sound.
