I’ll never forget sitting on my grandmothers living room floor with so much energy as a seven-year old could muster waiting upon the arrival on our black and white TV sets that particular Sunday night on Feb. 9, 1964. It’s when America went wild over four mop topped English lads and we have never looked back.
In reality this was my favorite song out of all the hits from “The Shirelles” and there were a lot of them. And nobody could have repeated their exact rendition as good.
But when the summer of love in 67′ exploded and the tide turned once again with the arrival of the hippie generation, there was one group that put their own arrangement to this song in 1969 and it seem to come out with the same perfection as the original for its day.
Written: Music by Richard Rodgers and Lyrics by Lorenz Hart.

Nina Simone (whose 1958 debut album was named after the song was admired by Janis.

BY THE TIME WE GOT TO WOODSTOCK, WE WERE HALF A MILLION STRONG~!
It took place Aug. 15-18. It was the Concert of ALL Concerts. And it only seemed like yesterday. There was no Violence nor Chaos at the venue in the 4 days. The only disruption there was, was trying to get there. For the conditions that took place with lack of water, food, & personal necessities. Woodstock remained Peaceful throughout the four days without incident. In this Blog, I will take you through the concert with pictures, stories, & THE MUSIC.
It was billed as “Three Days of Peace and Music”. And they lied. It was ” Four Days of Peace and Music “.

First Version and video of Woodstock is my favorite. And is playing
