March 16th

The Monkees record versions of "Shades Of Gray" and "You Just May Be The One" for their up-coming "Headquarters" album.  They also play around with the "Peter Gunn" theme, adlibbing and improvising during the ensuing jam session.  Some of this will show up 40+ years later on the "Headquarters Sessions" CD box under the title "Peter Gunn's Gun".

Here's some of that back-and-forth action I mentioned earlier between "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James and the Shondells and The Turtles' latest hit, "Happy Together".

Last week "Happy Together" knocked "I Think We're Alone Now" out of the #1 spot on the WCFL Sound 10 Survey.

Next week you'll see that they've flip-flopped again!

(Interesting, too, to see Peter and Gordon pictured on this week's chart ... they split up a few weeks ago!!!)
