    A guy produced this 1.5 hour show in 1965. Reportedly this is the first time it's been shown since, it was on PBS a couple nights back. I recorded it and watched it last night.
    All black and white film.... it's pretty amazing. Like a historical archive really. It's mostly Motown and R&B but amazing to see so many stars when they were very young.
    I enjoyed it immensely.
    Martha and the Vandellas: "Nowhere to Run"
    Dionne Warwick: "Walk on By"
    Herman’s Hermits: "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter"
    Marvin Gaye: "Pride and Joy"
    Cannibal & the Headhunters: "Land of 1000 Dances"
    Patti LaBelle and The Bluebelles: "You'll Never Walk Alone"
    Little Anthony & The Imperials: "I’m Alright"
    The Ronettes: "Be My Baby"
    Chuck Jackson: "I Don't Want to Cry!"
    Mary Wells: "My Guy"
    Johnny Rivers: "The Seventh Son"
    The Temptations: "The Way You Do the Things You Do"
    Gary Lewis & the Playboys: "Count Me In"
    The Drifters: "Up on the Roof"
    The Supremes: "Stop! In the Name of Love"
    The Righteous Brothers: "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'"
    The Four Tops: "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)"
    The Miracles: "Ooo Baby Baby"
    Ray Charles: "What'd I Say"

    seems similar to the TAMI show, another amazing document of time and place.
