HjGRNJ Show #8 ...It's a Bird....it's a Plane...it's a flying 78rpm!July 28, 2018 Dangerous R&R Show
Hello! This is the last show of July and it's been a scorcher over here on the east coast of the USA....but thanks to air conditioning we managed not to wilt. SET 1: Starting us off is the Jefferson Airplane with a Marty Balin penned song: "3/5th of a mile in 10 seconds". A live cut off of BLESS IT'S POINTED LITTLE HEAD. The Smoke has us flying with a slightly different delivery system LSD with "My friend Jack"...killer stuff from 1966. Big Joe Turner lets everyone know he doesn't need that hallucinogenic sh*t...all he needs is his "Boogie woogie country girl" played from the original source...78rpm...you betcha! Keeping with slabs of wax we switch gears and throw a 45rpm on the table with a great Beatles cover by Boxer..."Hey bulldog". SET 2: Gram Parsons keeps the 45rpm vibe going with his early band The International Submarine Band and what I consider their finest moment: "Sum Up Broke". I have no idea what they mean by that but it's a great single. Teleporting Gram 3 years into the future The Flying Buritto Brothers with "Christine's Tune". Interverntion Records remixed and released THE GUILDED PALACE OF SIN this year and it's a winner! Christine is Christine Fahr who can be seen on the cover of the LP and she's also the ghoulish looking babe on the cover of HOT RATS looking out from behind a gravestone. The Onion Radio News checks in just before south African musician and activist John Kongos rips with "He's gonna step on you again". And back to the USA with Erin McKeown and a nice ditty called "Cinematic" offa her 4th LP GRAND. SET 3: Schoolboy Cleve and his drinkin' buddies Lightnin' Slim and Polka Dot Slim mash it up with a very hard to find and great 45rpm "She's Gone" from 1954. Hop back on a plane to Canada where The Ugly Ducklings reside and "Just in case you wonder"...great stuff north of the border from 1966. The Kinks with Dave Davies handling the vocals with "Love me till the sun shines". One of my all time favs! The Byrds can't do anything wrong as far as I'm concerned …."It won't be wrong" from 1965. SET 4: Romeo Nelson with a 78 recorded in the late 20's and "Head Rag Hop"...Jesus God! I love this record! The Belltones lettin' everyone know about a "Swingin' little chickie" before Jackie Lee Cochran with one of the all time great grinders "Georgia Lee Brown" and we finish up with The Royal Teens' "Sham Rock"...That's it for this month...I'll be back next week as long as the creek don't rise and the good lord's willin'...…..
