Yep, it's official today, Chris and I going to London again this May. (boy, that tax return money sure can be spent fast when you are dealing with the airlines!) I'm looking forward to the endless sea of this:



because they just don't make beans like that here. Oh, and the bonus, Melissa aka makeupagogo will be there at the same time Chris and I will be, so *maybe* we'll get to meet-up on a different continent from the one we naturally habitat. Same goes for mojo_navigator. I must see first hand if you are as cranky-yet-lovable as you are on the internet.
So anyhow, to get in the mood, here's a couple fav Brit songs from the 1960s. The title appropriate Birds' "Leaving Here" was a Dozier-Holland-Holland Motown song that was originally a hit for Eddie Holland. The Action's "I'll Keep Holding On" was another Motown hit originally done by The Marvelettes, which I have to say, is one of my favorite Motown songs.

Quick run down:"Goo Goo Muck" is a Cramps staple, this original version is pretty rare, I reckon. "It's Monster Surfin' Time"? Just look at the picture HERE. 'Nuff said. Lastly, "Scream!" from 1959 has been covered by the 5.6.7.8.'s. Both versions send my cat running out of the room. 'Nuff said.

I recently saw this 45 by The Rhythm Machine go for $162 on Ebay. Now that's dedication since one can easily get this song on the fab Funky 16 Corners compilation. Now this song is about kicking smack. I've never had a smack addiction, but for me, internet auctions are smack and Ebay is the pusherman. This addiction has not made me broke yet, but if I ever start buying $162 45's, that would be a serious problem that I would need to k-k-k-kick.

I don't know if any fellow bloggers/jouurnalers have posted this one yet, for I can't keep up with all the songs everybody posts. It's madness! I've never been on Soulseek (don't really know how it works), but I think I'm content with all the cool free stuff I've been downloading from other people's blogs. The last thing I need is to get hooked on Soulseek, lawdy! Anyhow, Stone. This is her cover of The Beatles' "You Won't See Me", but it's called "La Jour La Nuit" which means "the day the night." Horns, groovy bass, wild (but buried) guitar, I'm sold and this tune is mod-o-refic!

El Tarro De Mostaza made an album for Capitol Records in 1970. According to the booklet I have, it says the orig. album "is in the top 5 for Mexican rarities." Now, who heck determines things like that, I don't know. But I do know that this song can help you get your Mexican freak-out on. Oh, and I would LOVE IT if just one time I could walk into a Mexican owned/operated restaurant in the U.S. and hear some Mexican rock music, preferably from the 1960's/early 70's. Am I the only one that finds that very cheaply produced mariachi music with the drum machine beats dreadful? I'm not hating on all mariachi music, just this certain type I keep hearing. I know they're probably trying to create an authentic atmosphere, but man, that stuff blows. Though, it's not as dreadful as what the actual food does to my insides, ay caramba! Yet, I can't resist...

The first thing I think of every time I hear this Patricia Carli song is David Lynch. Or to be more specific, Twin Peaks. Or to be even MORE specific, the scene where Ben Horne has a flashback of him and his brother Jerry as kids in their bunk beds, watching their babysitter dance to a dreamy 50's style song. I could be way off, and the two songs (the music of course, not the vocals) could sound nothing alike, but to confirm this would require me to whip out the Twins Peaks vhs tapes and search for that episode. Of course, it would be heck a of a lot easier to find if season two of Twin Peaks was on DVD, thus I would own it, thus it would make finding that episode super duper easy. But I digress...(Dear God, Are you there? It's me, Margaret. Please f*cking release season two of Twin Peaks on DVD already!!!!! Forget about the training bra question, just focus on this Twin Peaks issue. Thank You, Margaret Simon.)

This first groovy track is from Morricone's 1972 score to Revolver, starring Oliver Reed. It's not even 2 minutes long, but it's one of my favorite things that I've ever heard by the Maestro. It would be an awesome break beat, if it hasn't been done yet...

Here's a track from Cannabis, the 1970 gangster movie that starred Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. Now, I've yet to see Cannabis, but just judging by the stills I've seen from it, it looks HOT! Could anybody confirm this theory if mine? Does a version with English subtitles exist? Is it even worth seeing?

Can a harp really groove??? With Dorthy Ashby on the strings and Richard Evans producing, you bet it can! Richard Evans was the mind behind the Soulful Strings LPs, which I love. He'd take a song like "Paint it Black" and would record an instrumental easy listening version, but way more groovy than easy listening lps typically are. "Soul Vibrations" was written by Evans. Ashby is on harp, and the other artists are "unknown."

I'm excited this week because the CD I mentioned HERE is finally in my hands. It had been on back order since the day it came out in October. So to celebrate, here's another Harris song, the Allen Toussaint song "Mean Man" that he wrote and produced. "Mean Man" is also covered on the latest Detroit Cobra's album Baby, but I really don't recommend that, especially after I just saw them on this last tour. As dwfriend would say, "You got to see the shit end of the Cobras." Shit end indeed. When it comes to listening to Betty Harris songs, just stick with Betty Harris.

Italian rocker Adriano Celentano has been performing/making music since 1957. If you're a film buff, then you may have seen him acting as well. He played the "rock singer" in La Dolce Vita. You remember the singer, right? He *almost* foiled Marcello's plans of whisking Anita Ekberg away from the party. Also, if you've seen Godard's Contempt, then you may remember this Celentano song from the dance scene that was in the movie that was being shot within the movie. Does that make sense? Anyhow, I know for fact that there's a French version by Rocky Volcano and if anybody has that, please share it with me. Mucho Gracias!

Larry recently posted Marlena Shaw's studio version of "Woman of the Ghetto" from 1969, so I thought it would be an excellent time to post the more emotional, more funky live version from 1973. This live version is 9'51 minutes long, so this may not be for everyone. (And by "not everyone", I mean you dial-uppers who are stuck in the year 1998, who are also soon to be on display with dinosaur fossils:) Click on Larry at the top to read more thoughtful and researched notes on Marlena, because all you get here is UN-researched and thoughtLESS ramblings.

Gloria Jones: Girlfriend of Marc Bolan, mother of his child, sang and played on T.Rex albums, driver of the car that killed him. But let's back-up. In the mid-60's she was recording Motown-like Northern soul. What we have here is "Tainted Love" (yeah, it was a punchy soul song before a crappy 80's dance song) Now here's where it gets weird. There's one thing about her that I just can't confirm. Is she the same Gloria Jones that was an original member of The Blossoms? Which would then make her a part of the confusing Blossoms-Crystals-Darlene Love-Phil Spector spider web? I'm going to go with yes, unless somebody can confirm otherwise. Gloria Jones, you're an enigma...

but here's my flea market finds from last week:

I had a lot of awesome finds. That Isley Brothers LP from 1969 on T Neck is freakin' awesome. This was their first album after leaving the career control freaks at Motown. I've listened to side 2 about 20 times already. Also, I had been looking for that Betty Davis LP for a while now. She was married to Miles Davis for year, then she started making her own sexually-themed funk-rock albums ("Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him") Supposedly, she was "too wild" for Miles. Man, she's hot, but be careful, she might draw blood.


phyllisgabor also bought that 20 Original Winners comp with the bikers cover this week. What are the odds?!? I bought it especially for The Coasters' "Poison Ivy" because I love the Stones version. Oh, and that girl groups lp is the soundtrack that goes to this, which I owned until about a month ago. The tape got stuck in my VCR and and the tape AND my VCR ended up in the garbage because of this jam. MGM, please out that out on DVD! It has Shangri-La's footage for christ's sake. Speaking of the Shangs, I also got one of their Red Bird 45s, "Long Live Our Love" w/ "Sophisticated Boom Boom" and a Sandy Posey 45 "Single Girl." All these are from the same record dealer, Paul. Paul is a really nice guy, has an awesome selection, and ALWAYS gives me killer deals (let's just say that the "Modesty Blaise" soundtrack alone is probably worth more than what I paid for the whole lot.)

Nicolai's track starts with trembling violins, a screeching trumpet, random piano chords, then a rock drum beat kicks in. Spooky AND groovy!

Under-rated score by the Maestro. This track is a scary mess of noise, but the rest of the score is groovy with wordless vocals, my favorite kind of Morricone! Oh, and the plot of this movie is killer. "A woman is found dead with her belly torn apart. The victim's husband hires a detective to investigate. Meanwhile, other women are murdered in the same way:A sting to immobilize them before ripping their belly apart. The solution will be found in a beauty salon, which was attended by all the victims."
C'mon, how f-ing glamorous is that? A sinister beauty salon that murders it's clients by ripping their torsos wide open? Somebody PLEASE release a legit DVD of this...

Aw-ww, grasshopper love. Hot, wet, grasshopper action.



Last Sunday I saw Sharon Jones with the lovely lanky14. Despite the band's bus breaking down on the way to Cleveland and them being SUPER late, they still put on an awesome show. C'mon, Chris was so grouchy after waiting around for so long, but the Dap Tones even managed to put Chris in an awesome mood which ended with him proclaiming "I will go see them EVERY time they come around!" Now that's talent because Chris rarely likes seeing any bands! Now, I wish I could say the same for the Detroit Cobras...


I think I lost a little respect for them. Well, let me re-phrase that, I lost a little respect for Rachel Nagy. I don't know, blame it on seeing Sharon Jones only six days before, but I think Rachel Nagy was a limp fish with almost no charisma, who (fact) stood in the same spot with her drink and cig the whole time. The band was decent, but they just kind of plowed through the songs. Mind you, the same EXACT cover songs that are on the albums, nothing extra. No surprises. Boo-ooo! Oh, and they were really late starting too, but not because of a bus, van, or tricycle malfunction. After the opening band was done, it took them over an HOUR to start. WTF? Some people were really pissed and were flipping off the stage! Boozed-up Clevelanders don't have the best patience, but I can't blame 'em this time...

So, which of you local night owls/lounge lizards/drunk as skunks are coming to Cedars this Friday?

Irma Thomas had four kids and two ex-husbands by the time she was 20 years old. She then went on to record some of the best damn soul of the 1960s. Apparently, she was working as a waitress in a club and would occasionally sit in with the band leader, which led her to getting a record deal. Also, Darlene Love and the Blossoms supposedly backed Irma on some of her tracks. Maybe that's Darlene hand-clapping on "Break-A-Way"? Oh man, and the way "Wish Someone Would Care" opens?

Now, what we have here are my fav tracks from a CD compilation my friend made me of Elvis fuck-ups and rants. (Note: These are 5-6 minutes long each)
The first one is E. going off about what he calls "rumors" of him being on drugs, but he's clearly fucked-up on something while he's laying these "rumors" to rest. It's kills me the way he says "strung out!".

Both songs are from the 1965 Colpix LP. All Music Guide calls their Colpix sound "generic", but I beg to differ. I mean, yeah, of course the Spector stuff sounds superior, but "generic"???
