A 50-Year Memory: Video for August

(Sorry for the delay. See yesterday's post for my "excuse.")
August 1966.
I turned 18-years old, but in those ancient days I was still not old enough to vote.
August 1966.
My last month at home before heading off to college.
August 1966.
Probably for me one of those pivot points between what was and what would one day be.
August 1966:
"Wild Thing" by the Troggs topped the charts for the first week of August, but then the Lovin' Spoonful took over with Summer in the City.

(One of the few John Sebastian songs where his voice doesn't sound like it's smiling all the way through.)
