“TCB,” Diana Ross & the Supremes with the Temptations / Total weeks at No. 1: 1 This soundtrack to a 1968 TV special only held No. 1 for one week before the White Album bounced back for three more weeks. It looks to be out of print now, but the show is on YouTube and is a groovy time capsule. The Motown stars perform on gigantic glass table-like stage in flashy costumes, Ross does a three-wigged dance solo titled “Afro-Vogue,” and now I remembered why I always wanted to dance like a Temptation.

No doubt some of the good feeling at Wednesday’s opening night performance derived from the start of the long holiday weekend. But there was no mistaking the effervescence coming from the stage of the War Memorial Opera House. It radiated across the footlights like the heat of a long day in Spain, where Rossini’s comic masterpiece is set. Some nights at the opera, everything just clicks. Sweetly sung and deliciously funny, Wednesday’s performance, the first of five, came together splendidly, with a well-calibrated cast, a zesty orchestral performance under conductor Giuseppe Finzi, and a cheerful staging by Emilio Sagi, first introduced at the War Memorial in 2013 and directed in this revival by Roy Rallo.

Both, though, were thrilled that Paramount TV brought the Selena Gomez-produced “13 Reasons Why” to downtown Vallejo this week. Around 50 extras were hired for Tuesday’s first day of filming the 13-episode Netflix series documenting the true story of teenage girl who commits suicide, but before doing it she records her suicide note on cassette tapes, and then sends the tapes to 13 people who she deemed responsible for her death. The cameras started rolling late-morning inside made-for-the-movie Monet’s Cafe, the one-time City Lights restaurant on the 400 block of Virginia St. Across the street in front of the Times-Herald building, Barlow and Burckin waited patiently, hoping for the call.
