T.A.M.I. SHOW BLU

Spy Vibe's vintage book contest ends on Dec 16th- don't miss it! New release: The fabulous T.A.M.I. Show and The Big TNT Show just came to Blu-ray courtesy of Shout Factory. It's time to get the party started in your secret lair! From the press release: "The energy and excitement of some of music’s greatest grooves! The unmistakable sounds of a generation explode onto the screen with two of the greatest concert films of the rock n’ roll revolution: The T.A.M.I. Show and The Big T.N.T. Show. Filmed just eight months after The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, 1964’s The T.A.M.I. Show introduced rock ’n’ soul youth culture to America as never before. Its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show built on its predecessor’s legacy as a showcase for the hottest hit-makers in music. Collectively, the two films are an incredible time capsule of American popular culture in the 1960s, and representative of the gold standard for concert films. This Collector’s Edition is a double-barreled blast of the sights and the sounds of music’s greatest eras, and features performances by future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Rolling Stones, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson And The Miracles, Bo Diddley, The Supremes, Ike and Tina Turner, The Ronettes, The Byrds, Ray Charles, and many other American and British Invasion hitmakers in their prime!" More info at Amazon. Sting can finally replace his VHS tape- same one he's had for years (Police in-joke). Enjoy!

SPY VIBE CONTEST

It's been a while since we've had a proper give-away contest here and I've picked up a couple of 50-year-old treasures to share with two lucky readers. First the rules: All you you have to do is send an email to me at spyvibe[at]gmail.com with either "Avengers" or "Secret Agent" in the title (depending on which prize you want). And in the body of the e-mail, please describe some of your favorite 1960s spies and why you think they are good examples of 1960s culture. Also include your mailing address. I will choose 2 winners at random on December 16th. Notification will be by e-mail and prizes will be shipped to you at no cost. All emails will be deleted after the contest. Spy Vibe maintains the right to print/quote your spy descriptions to share with readers. Want to share your ideas but don't need a prize? That's OK! I'd love to hear from you. Now, let's get on to the prizes! Prize One: The Avengers: The Laugh Was on Lazarus by John Garforth, US paperback edition, 1967. Prize Two: Secret Agent/Danger Man: Departure Deferred by W. Howard Baker, US paperback edition, 1966. As you can see below, both books sport wonderful photo sills and designs featuring actors Patrick McGoohan, Diana Rigg, and Patrick Macnee. Cool reads and fun artifacts from the great Spy Boom. Good Luck!
