To all the girls i've loved before


Julio and Willie. Together again, for the very first time.

Think you got what it takes to make it through the whole song? It's only three and a half minutes. Three and a half of the longest minutes you'll ever live... Give it a shot.

File this one under the What the hell were they thinking category.

Enjoy?

The Crusher!



The jury is still out, but this could possibly be the greatest record ever made... In the history of recorded sound.

It's just one man's opinion- but i think i might be right about this.
You be the judge.
Enjoy!

Stronger than dirt


When i found this one i was hoping that it was going to be the original version of the Mummies song of the same name. It's not, but it's still a righteous old jam anyway.

Enjoy!

Dark Side


One of the best b sides ever, because even though it's a slow jam it's got more balls than the flip if you ask me. The other side being their version of 'Gloria.' This has always been one of my favorite Shadows Of Knight tunes. Dig when the Ahhhh Ahhhh backing vocals come in- rock and roll perfection right there...

Enjoy!

What's made Milwaukee famous (has made a loser out of me)



Let's take a trip up way up north to beer city, shall we?

"Milwaukee" an Indian name. In fact , it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

'The Killer' kills it on this one. Enjoy!

Put the bone in



The scene: Any recording studio USA. The 1970s. Random band members sitting around idly. Talking, smoking cigarettes, listening to a playback of their latest recording. Terry Jacks enters, almost breathless with excitement. Conversation stops. All eyes and ears focus on him. Barely able to contain himself, he's so eager to share his most recent composition with his band mates:

"Fellas, Fellas, dig this idea for a new song- Its the story of a woman standing in line at the butcher shop placing her order, and telling the dude about how her dog was just hit by a car."

"Right on, man. What's it called?"

"It's called 'Put the bone in.' Get it?"

"What?! You aint no Dylan, that's for sure man-"

"She goes out into the street, with her fist shaking in the air and yells it at the whole world: 'Put the bone in!!' See- The dog, he used to dig gnawing on the pork bone, but now he's dead, and the woman- well, she's just not quite over it yet. A pet dying is kind of a big deal thing, ya know..."

"I'm hip to that."

"...So she's asking the butcher to put the bone in with all her other stuff just like she used to do when the dog was still alive... Great concept for a song though, doncha think?!! Check it out- It goes something like this:"

Fly the flag


I posted The Beatle Shuffle for Flag Day, and this one on Paul McCartney's birthday. Oh sure, I've really been on the ball these past few months...
Fuck it. After a day or two it's all just out there. In the end, who's really gonna care, right?

Enjoy!

Beatle Shuffle



The Beatle SHuffle- By the John Lemon trio..? I just had to know.
I bought this record a few months back and was disappointed that it had nothing to do with the Beatles in any way shape or form. Its just a groovy saxophone instrumental. The kind of thing you'd hear as background music for the party scene in any crappy teen movie in the 60's.

Enjoy!

You can't fight city hall blues



Yer gonna lose. You can't fight the city hall blues.

It's the flip side of a tune i posted a few weeks ago, the classic "The Eggplant that ate Chicago."

S-W-I-M !



Come on all you swimmers, i'll show you the way. It's the number one dance in the U.S.A.

Here's what young Sylvester Stewart was up to before he became Sly Stone, he was writing and producing jams like this one. This is the follow up to a record called "C'mon and swim" (They were really trying to get their point across with this whole swim business- Personally, my follow up record would have been called "go jump in a lake" but that's just me.) Anyway, i posted that one like a year ago. If you want, you can hear it HERE.

SWIM!!!

The Pool Shark



I watched this flick called "Deadhead Miles" last night. Early 70s truck driver movie starring Alan Arkin and the guy who played Bentley on The Jeffersons. Worth checking out if you dig gritty old road movies with no real point.

This song is not actually in it, but Dave Dudley did sing the rest of the soundtrack, and when i saw his name i was like- Hey, i got a record by that guy...
That's all i got. Whatever.
This is a good one anyway.

Enjoy!

boogaloo down broadway



I may not know much, but one thing i can tell you is that a 45 with the word 'Boogaloo' in the title is usually a safe bet. I've known this song for a long time but only found my own copy recently.

As the great JJ Evans would say: Dy-No-Mite!

Enjoy!
