The Beatles with Billy Preston released a single of Get Back / Don't Let Me Down

 

This single had quite a run back in 1969....

Moody Blues, Never Comes the Day

A flop as a single, but the album, On the Threshold of a Dream, has been a companion of mine for lo these many years. Justin Hayward has always been a favorite singer of mine.

The Youngbloods, Get Together (technically, a re-release - a fresh start that worked)

Such a classic summer of '69 song.

week of Aug 23, probably unfamiliar to many - Orpheus, Can't Find the Time

This band was from near my school at the time. But I did not have radio available (electronics banned for my age cohort), so only heard it at a dance we had one Saturday night (and we had only one in the Fall Term, and one in the Spring :(). It took me a while to actually find the song on vinyl - I might still have the album in storage. Classic late-60s sound.
