I wasn’t even a teenager when this concert aired, beamed to movie theaters around the US in June 1965. Dean Martin’s hit the previous August finally bumped the Beatles out of the number one slot on the TOP 40. Everyone around me was rock and roll, the Beatles and listening to the “English Invasion” at the time.
Something about this music called me, even as child. The first album I ever purchased was Dean Martins “Everybody Loves Somebody” album and I wore it out. While my sisters and friends listened to the Doors, the Turtles and the ongoing 60’s rock, I was a Rat Pack fan. My parents didn’t listen to the music either. This concert is worth putting on while you are doing anything else. They had fun performing on stage. They didn’t just ‘play’ it either.
