Thank you, Jim, for both of these. I remember so well ("like it was yesterday") seeing John Denver in local clubs around Los Angeles, way before he was "John Denver". I did get to see Linda with the Stone Poneys at the Troubadour performing this wonderful song. Those were the days.

On my radio today is James Jamerson (January 29, 1936 - August 2, 1983), the primary bassist for Motown Records' session band the Funk Brothers, who would have been 78 today. He played on most of the Motown hits in the 1960s and early 1970s and he is now regarded as one of the most influential bass players in modern music history. He performed on 30 number-one hits, more than any person or group in music history, and on more than 70 number-one R&B hits, also the most ever. He went uncredited until the release of Marvin Gaye's landmark LP "What's Going On" in 1971.
