    Nice show, but it's a bit odd that in a show dedicated to the year 1961 not a single song played was released in 1961. Among the 1961 songs that could have been played are "Please Mr. Postman" by The Marvelettes, "Bristol Stomp" by The Dovells, "Runaway" by Del Shannon, "Weekend" by Eddie Cochran, and "Ain't That Just Like Me" by The Coasters.

    We got "Killing Floor" from Howlin' Wolf in this show, but it was released in 1965. Instead it would have made more sense to play "I Ain't Superstitious", which Howlin' Wolf released in 1961. Bo Diddley had an album in 1961, too, so he could have been in the show.

    But if you're going to have a 1961 show, surely one of the songs that has to be included is "Louie Louie" by The Wailers. Not only was it not played, it wasn't even mentioned. At least "My Bonnie" by Tony Sheridan and The Beatles was talked about, although it would have been nice to hear the song played in the show.

    So I liked the show, even though the songs played did not really fit the show's theme.

      Hello David,

      As you know it's a repeat of show 93 (Amsterdam/1961)... But it was also in another show (one that I missed)... Could you let me know which one it was ?

      • DavidWhite


        If you had to guess what the show number was for the original 1961 show, what would you say?

        (Insert "Jeopardy" thinking music here....)

        Yes, it was (of course) show #61! The Coolest Song in the World This Week from that show was "Almost Summer" by The Apers. They, like Q65, are a Dutch band (which explains both why Q65 was played right after the CSITWTW and also Steven's comment at the end of the set about playing more Dutch sounding music.

        If you are not familiar with "Almost Summer" you can hear it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQb7V2MzoWM It's also on Volume 5 of the CSITW albums, still available from Wicked Cool Records.

          PS - Shows #61 and #93, like this show, also featured no songs that were released in 1961. So that's three airings of the 1961 show without any 1961 music. Weird, huh?

  • Madeleine Hague

    Renegade Nation Cardholder #10 here….just want to say, how fabulous it was to hear WILKO JOHNSON and ROGER DALTRY on Sunday night. Totally interrupted my Scrabble game, but worth it.

  • mygeneration

    I wish more of the set lists were '50s-'60s.

  • jcjohnson63

  • Baron Moritani

  • Ron Lynch

    5 cool ones,Killing Floor (Howlin’ Wolf),Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor (Yardbirds), I’m A Hog For You Baby (Strypes, Dollhouse (Bruce Springsteen) & Dollhouse (Bruce Springsteen). Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

  • Chris Dougherty

    Another nice show although I could used some music from 1961 as well. The Dogs look like a good band for the future.
