Nearly fifty years ago, on October 29, 1964, the T.A.M.I. show was wrapping up its second and final day at the Santa Monica (CA) Auditorium. T.A.M.I. was a showcase for a number of future Hall of Fame acts, including The Beach Boys, James Brown, The Supremes, Chuck Berry and Smokey Robinson. Fortunately, it's all on film and "is considered one of the seminal events in the pioneering of music films." If you've never seen the show, you owe it to yourself to spend a couple of hours to see the great live performances by rock and R & B royalty. We're featuring a song by one of the electrifying acts -- The Rolling Stones (even Brian Jones gets caught up in the moment). Here's "It's All Over Now." (Love the hypnotic rhythm and bass guitar lines.) Enjoy your weekend.
