    Many excellent songs appearing on that week's list. Cream's Sunshine of Your Love is very close to being a perfect song. Vanilla Fudge's cover of You Keep Me Hangin' On takes a Motown classic to a new level, and the videos of them performing it are loads of fun. Jumping Jack Flash, Born to be Wild, Hello I Love You, lots more great material. A good week!

    Speaking of 1968, I bought the s/t Blood, Sweat and Tears CD a few weeks ago. Man, what a great record!
