Next Episode of Pop Go the Sixties is
Colourful nuggets of pop mined from the BBC's archive.
Pop moments from the BBC's sixties archive. Recorded in 1968 for Top of the Pops, Julie Driscoll sings to the smoking hot accompaniment of keyboard wizard Brian Auger's Trinity on their hit version of Bob Dylan's This Wheel's On Fire.
Britain's inoffensive pop conquerors of America, who anticipated the sound that the Monkees would later call their own, perform Something Is Happening on theWednesday Show in 1968. Peter Noone leads the band on the song that made number six in the Swiss charts.
From her own series recorded in 1967, Dusty Springfield performs the Bobby Hebb classic, Sunny, which had been a hit in the UK for Cher and Georgie Fame.
A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procul Harum was one of the Sixties' most popular and most played songs. It's performed here by the group who first recorded it, on Top of the Pops in 1967.
From a rehearsal for a Top of the Pops performance, Sandie gives an accidentally aloof ice-queen rendering of Long Live Love so the cameras can practice their positions. An otherworldly performance of her number 1 hit from 1965.
From a 1964 edition of Crackerjack, pop folk duo Peter Asher and Gordon Waller sing A World Without Love written by Paul McCartney - who was going out with Peter's sister at the time.
A 1966 performance from the singing star of The Frost Report. Going to the Zoo calls for audience participation and the audience wind themselves up into a near-monochrome frenzy as they sway slightly in their seats and softly join in.
A youthful Status Quo, complete with ruffled shirts and sideburns, sing their first hit single, Pictures of Matchstick Men, on a 1968 episode of Top of the Pops.
Back to 1968 and a song taken from Cilla Black's very own show, Cilla and her dancers perform a cover version of the Stevie Wonder classic Uptight.
In a real Brucie bonus from 1968, we see Bruce tickle the ivories in his own inimitable way on the Harry Seacombe show. He performs the 1965 pop instrumental A Walk In The Black Forest.
Performing the opening track to their album Let It Bleed, The Rolling Stones are pure sixties psychedelia singing Gimme Shelter on Pop Goes the Sixties from 1969.
Taking their name from a Bo Didley song, The Pretty Things groove out during a performance of Midnight To Six Man from their album Get The Picture? on A Whole Scene Going in 1966.
