60s Museum Event--the Playlist

I was lucky enough to serve as a DJ tonight at the 60s Museum Benefit at Chicago's Kinetic Playground club. The night featured sets by the New Invaders (with a guest appearance by Jimy Sohns, lead singer of Chicago's 60s punks The Shadows of Knight) and by the headliner, Country Joe McDonald (with three of the original four Fish backing him)!

Before the New Invaders, I played the following:

Arthur Alexander--You Better Move On
Beach Boys--I Get Around
Impressions--It's All Right
New Colony Six--At the River's Edge
Rolling Stones--Get Off My Cloud
Bob Dylan--Outlaw Blues
Aretha Franklin--I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)
Jefferson Airplane--She Has Funny Cars
Kinks--Tired of Waiting
Beatles--Paperback Writer
J.J. Jackson--But it's Alright
Herbie Hancock--Bring Down the Birds
Seeds--Pushin' Too Hard
Byrds--Artificial Energy
Mar-Keys--Last Night
Ray Charles--Mess Around
Little Annie--Lean Lanky Daddy
Nazz--Open My Eyes
Lovin' Spoonful--Summer in the City
Beach Boys--Good Vibrations
Nina Simone--I Put a Spell on You
Michael & the Messengers--(Just Like) Romeo & Juliet
Crosby, Stills, & Nash--Marrakesh Express

Following the New Invaders/Jimy Sohns set, I played:

Bob Dylan--She Belongs to Me
Shadows of Knight--Oh Yeah
Albert King--Crosscut Saw
Foundations--Baby, Now That I've Found You
Cryan Shames--Mr. Unreliable
Edwin Starr--Agent Double-O-Soul
Supremes--Love is Like an Itching in My Heart
Little Esther Phillips--Mojo Hannah
Yardbirds--I'm Not Talking
Doors--Touch Me
Bar-Kays--Soul Finger
Ides of March--You Wouldn't Listen
Kinks--A Well Respected Man
Byrds--Tribal Gathering

And, after Country Joe's long, but fun, set:

Otis Redding & Carla Thomas--Tramp
Etta James--Tell Mama
Jefferson Airplane--3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds
Strangeloves--Night Time

I'm tired, but It was a good time. If you're interested in learning more about the 60s museum, and events such as this one, go to

Incidentally, realoldies played Kenny Rogers' "Ruby", from 1969, the other day.

Well, as far as my wide-ranging tastes that night, it's easy to play a variety of songs when nobody bothers to give you a format...

Well, yeah, but I was more commenting on the variety itself. There are plenty of songs here I've never even heard OF, let alone heard.

Like, who are these "Supremes" you mention?

I attended the events at the New Kinetic Playground On September 24, 2005 & saw New Invaders, Country Joe & the Fish & also liked your DJ performance & selection of 1960's songs you played that night. I was a DJ in college at Monmouth from 1977 thru 1980 & had a recent reunion in June 2005 for people who were dj's from 1960 through 2005. Had a great time & shared memories & anecdotes from people of different generations who worked with all different kinds of equipment.
