Super Hits of the Sixties

Last edited Wed May 8, 2013, 12:10 AM - Edit history (2)

Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames!



Fame has collaborated with some of the most successful performers in the world of popular music. He has been a core member of Van Morrison's band, as well as his musical producer. Fame also played keyboards and sang harmony vocals on such tracks as "In the Days before Rock 'n' Roll" from the album Enlightenment, while still recording and touring as an artist in his own right. Fame played organ on all of the Van Morrison albums between 1989 and 1997, and starred at Terry Dillon's 60th-birthday party on 10 May 2008. Morrison refers to Fame in the line "I don't run into Mr. Clive" in his song "Don't Go to Nightclubs Anymore" featured on the 2008 Keep It Simple album. Fame appeared as a special guest on Morrison's television concert show presented by BBC Four series on 25 April and 27 April 2008.

Fame was also founding member of friend Bill Wyman's early band Rhythm Kings, touring with the band. He has also worked with Count Basie, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Joan Armatrading and The Verve.

14. Ricky

was the spiritual descendent of Rudy Vallee. His Uber-Talented parent, Ozzie and Harriet, passed him down the talent of music and taught him the art of understatement.

5. The Toys

It is by Christian Petzold, not Bach. It was included in the 1725 notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. The book included compositions by both Bach and other composers of the time.

8. Dance to the Music/Music Lover Sly and the Family Stone

This is not the Woodstock performance, but another great live performance of the song. Such showmanship.

They didn't last long, but their contribution was brilliant and influential.

13. Franki Valli - Can't Take My Eyes Off You

I watched a man in the produce store start singing to himself when this song came on, and you could see it reminded him of someone very special. Touching.
