The T.A.M.I. Show

Our gay sister, the lovely Lesley Gore, singing at the T.A.M.I. Show -
when it was still respectable for a girl to sing rock and roll,
while dressed - and acting - like a lady.

My truckbuddy Tim over in sunny rainy Spain is working on another essay, which he's sent me a draft of - and something in it made me go look up some old sixties rock performances on YouTube. And to my amazement, I found that somebody has uploaded the complete film of the legendary T.A.M.I. Show from 1964 - lots of great music and classic performances there, thought the rest of you fellas might want to revisit your memories with this.

Performers include:
  • The Beach Boys
  • Chuck Berry
  • James Brown
  • Marvin Gaye
  • Gerry & the Pacemakers
  • Lesley Gore
  • Jan and Dean
  • Smokey Robinson and The Miracles
  • The Rolling Stones
  • The Supremes

Oh my, that was a good time to be young.  Who's your fave?
