“In 1963, Merseybeat took the pop music world by storm. By mid-1965, that storm had calmed down. The charts were occupied by tougher sounds, with more beat, and more rhythm and blues. The Rolling Stones scored with ‘Satisfaction’, The Animals with ‘We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place’ and The Who unleashed ‘Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere’. Why, some groups would even try a little experiment – think The Beatles and The Byrds.
By the end of 1965, the high days of several typical Merseybeat groups were over, such as The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Merseys, The Merseybeats, Wayne Fontana, Brian Poole…
Groups with more punch had more success or succeeded in continuing it – The Hollies, Manfred Mann (still jazz-inspired) – even the lightweight ones like Herman’s Hermits. In Holland, Q65 was on a level with The Pretty Things “(EB)

“Mike Vickers is a man who wears a coat of many colors: original Manfred Mann guitarist, A&R man for EMI, arranger and producer extraordinaire, composer and the beat goes on. He left Manfred Mann in 1966 and by 1967 he had released his debut LP.  Long before the likes of The Mike Flowers Pops (remember their 15 minutes in the 90’s?) Mike’s album was, and still is, a kitsch classic.  Utilizing a selection of interpretation’s of “easy” versions of then contemporary standards alongside a smattering of his own compositions, “I Wish I Were A Group Again” is slice of 1967 documenting when hip met camp.  What is interesting about it is that Vickers was a 25-“year old former member of a pop group, not an old school composer or arranger capitalizing on the “young sound” like Enoch Light or Tony Hatch”.

RADIO 68 PLAYS THE ENTIRE CD, incl. the three warming-up tunes (Start Me Up, When the Whip Comes Down, All Down The Line) and the three encores (Rock Me Baby, JJ Flash, I Can’t Turn You Loose.

The Rolling Stones kicked off their 2015 tour of the US with a one-off, truly unique gig at the Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, where they played ‘Sticky Fingers’ in its entirety. Not only was it the first time they played an entire LP live, it was also the occasion to hear many songs they hardly do live on stage, such as ‘You Gott Move’.  (EB)
‘Sticky Fingers Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015’ mag als een absolute top live plaat worden beschouwd. De band staat als een huis, speelt strak en vol energie. Hoewel de meeste nummers de afgelopen 20 jaar meer dan eens live te horen zijn geweest, vormen You Gotta Move en I Got The Blues een uitzondering. Een live versie van You Gotta Move vinden we nog op het live album ‘Love You Live’ met opnames uit de periode 1975 – 1977 uit onder andere de El Mocambo in Toronto. Ook wel de heilige graal onder Stones fans genoemd kijkend naar de setlist. De plaat zelf verscheen in 1978. I Got The Blues is zelfs maar acht keer live gespeeld sinds het bestaan van het nummer”.


 Radio 68 is happy to present  a new show: MY GENERATION LONGPLAYTIME. The concept of LONGPLAYTIME is simple: we will play full albums, album sides or selected album tracks.  We stress overlooked, forgotten, ignored, misjudged, rare, non-commercial and media-banned music and artists, throwing in a hit album for good measure. All from or related to the sixties –  of course! Thanks, Ed   **
OVER LANGPSPEELTIJD We presenteren we met plezier een nieuwe show: LANGSPEELTIJD. De idee achter LANGSPEELTIJD is eenvoudig: we draaien volledige albums, LP-kanten of een keuze uit een langspeelplaat. We hebben vooral  oog voor muziek en artiesten die vallen onder de categorieën “vergeten,  vreemd, geweerd, over het hoofd gezien, verkeerd begrepen, gecensureerd, zeldzaam “.  Met nu een dan een dikke hit ertussen. Geniet van de langSPEELTIJD. Bedankt, Ed
