I didn't keep track of how many songs I'd used on previous mixes for the summer of '69, but it was likely a good number (I had to dig deep into the charts to come up with this mix). Track 15 was used on a prior, mid-60s mix, having charted twice (earlier in the Fall of '66, when it reached #22). Track 18 was also used on my Backin' Through the Years (of 1969-67). Track 20 was from the cult daytime TV series "Dark Shadows". After posting this compilation, I noticed that track 22 was also used as the 1st track of my 2nd Volume of '69 tunes.

fresh inclusions for an era where certain songs have been played to death (okay, I could probably do without Honky Tonk Woman - not because it isn't good, but due to Classic Radio overkill). Otherwise, sterling!
