On 29 October 1964, an unprecedented group of American and British rock, pop, soul, and Motown legends came together at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium for a concert known as the T.A.M.I. Show. The evening was captured on film and is arguably the best rock-concert movie ever made, packed start to finish with nearly two hours of absolutely essential performances by Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye, the Supremes (look for Teri Garr as one of the dancers during "Where Did Our Love Go?"), Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Leslie Gore, Jan and Dean, a breathtakingly phenomenal performance by James Brown and the Flames, followed by the Rolling Stones rising to the occasion after Brown's legendary performance (Keith Richards has said that performing after Brown was perhaps the biggest mistake the band ever made).
This playlist brings you the set list for the evening's show.
