Outside The Top 40 three records make a jump of 20 places or more … "Light My Fire" by The Doors climbs from #73 to #51, "Shake Rattle And Roll" by Arthur Conley moves from #79 to #57 and "I Take It Back" by Sandy Posey jumps from #84 to #60.

In preparation for the worldwide live broadcast of "Our World", The Beatles begin recording "All You Need Is Love", completing 33 takes this evening.  

Meanwhile, here in The States, The Monkees begin recording "Daydream Believer" … it will later become their second #1 Record this year to feature the word "Believer" in the title.  

The movie "To Sir With Love" starring Sidney Poitier and Lulu premiers in New York City.  Lulu will top the charts later this year with the film's theme song (originally the intended B-Side of her "The Boat That I Row" single!)  

The Doors performed at The Scene, a popular New York City nightclub.  In the audience that night was Jimi Hendrix.
