The Rolling Stones - The 1964 creativity peak

Maybe some of you think that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were not prominent songwriters prior to "The Last Time".

But digging deeper into this issue reveals a situation that is quite the opposite to what is generally considered to be true.

Marc Bolan from the Danish magazine Vi Unge #7, July 1977.

Recently back in good shape, on several levels, with the album "Dandy In The Underworld". What a pity it was the last.

The Walker Brothers "My Ship Is Coming In" / "You're All Around Me" [Philips, BF 320 205], 1965. Swedish sleeve with a Norwegian record.

"Printing" error also on this second Swedish Walker Brothers single. Strange scratch marks on John's hair. All the copies I've seen have these and on both sides of the wrap around sleeve (with the same image).

is #nowplaying "Tambourine Man" from Gene Clark's album "Firebyrd" [Takoma, TAK 7112], 1984.

Today we celebrate Bob Dylan's 80th birthday, but it's a day of mixed feelings because it's also 30 years since Gene Clark left us far to early and young.

I (again) take the opportunity to remind you of Hans Olofsson's comprehensive article on Gene Clark - "The Byrd And The Best". Below you will find a link to the "introduction", this was later followed by six long parts on PopDiggers' site.

It is recommended that you take plenty of time to read each part, including listening to the almost two hundred song links to Gene Clark's compositions and cover versions.
