So how many of you are Motown and Old Time Rock N Roll Lovers? Share your Memories on all the Motown Sounds you remember and all the concerts you can remember. As for me, the list is way to long to remember all of the Great Bands from then that I saw. But, I must say I was born late in the 50's so I missed a good majority of the legends of the sounds of Old Time Soul and Rock n Roll. My list starts with Little Richard, Temptations, Ojay's, Four Tops, Al Green, Turtles, Bobby Sherman, Monkees, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Neil Sadaka, Tiny Tim, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Tom Jones, ,James Brown, Spinners, Paul Anka, Bobby Daren and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and last but not least The Beach Boys. From the time I was 14, I knew this was the Era I should have been born. Attending The Ohio State Fair and seeing all these wonderful bands in concert every summer for free. It was the greatest most fond memories I can remember. I have this Great Love for music, and cherish every bit of it. This is what makes me happy the most. Good Music to dance to, sing too, and keep me smiling.

Me too I love this era, and was lucky enough to be born so that I could enjoy all the grat songs of the 50's and 60's. The music of the 60's I think was the greatest, they was songs that you could understand the words too, unlike the ones today, and the artist, remember how cute some was, as a teen you fell in love with a new one every week. I loved Creedance and the Beach Boys, Frankie Valli and of course Bobby Daren. I didn't care much for Tiny Tim, I made some dvd's of the 60's songs and my daught had me make a dvd for her daughters so that they could see what she listened to as a teen. Sone like Purples people eater, along came jones, they laughed and could not believe anyone would listen to such a thing but my yourngest granddaughter like MY Ding A Ling, she payed it over and over. This is an era that so many missed and will never know unless they can get the music on DVD's and really listen to an era in music that was the greatest.

I love 60's music, I remember all thoseartists you mentioned, it is great music plus I really love the music that came out of Melbourne in the 60's, infact I am still hearing it often as the band I help often gets requests to sing 60's music. ..60's music will never die...
