HGRNJ Show 13 Who Was That Moocher?September 22, 2018 Dangerous R&R Show
Another show signed, sealed and delivered..... Set 1 OPENING SALVO *Starting off with a band from Boulder Colorado The Astronauts- "Tomorrow's gonna be another day" a 45 rpm on RCA 1965. These guys looked more like surfers than some California bands. *Johnny Ace & Willie Mae - "Hey Baby" another 45 rpm, this time on Don Robey's Duke Records dated 1953. It's said that when Johnny A shot himself in the head during a game of Russian Roulette Willie Mae [a spurned lover] loaded up the gun with some real lead. *Neko Case - "Hold on, hold on". A terrific slightly moody song off of her 2006 record FOX CONFESSOR BRINGS THE FLOOD. Anti 2006 *Link Wray - "Dick Tracy / Private Eye"...what can you say about the Linkster? He brings it everytime. SET 2: *Shocking Blue - Send me a postcard. 45 rpm on Pink Elephant....I have to admit I had chub for Mariska Veres when she was struttin' it. *Fraternity of Man - "In the morning" [ABC 1968]….future Little Feat members with a wacked out LP *Palmyra Delran & The Dopple Gang - Come Spy w/ Me [Wicked Cool]….New stuff for me on clear 12" 45 rpm vinyl. *Nirvana - Love Buzz [Sub Pop 1989]. Kurt Cobain was soooo good. Covering a Shocking Blue song off their debut BLEACH. SET 3 *The Mothers of Invention - Hungry Freaks Daddy [Verve 1966]. The first double R&R record I'm told. *Joan Jett - Everyday People [MCA / Blackheart 1983]...a 45 rpm *Dave Bartholomew - Who Drank The Beer While I Was In The Rear [Imperial 1952] Dave Bartholomew was the man behind Fats Domino rise to success as well as being the author of Chuck Berry's only #1 - My Ding-A-Ling [but we'll forgive him for that!]. Trumpet player, entepreneur, songwriter, member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...all these titles apply to the great Dave Bartholomew. Elvis Costello thought enough of DB to mention him in "Monkey to Man" on THE DELIVERY MAN which came out in 2004. *Jimmy Hall - Tell the Truth [Capricorn 1996]. Former frontman for Wet Willie with a smokin' version of JB Hutto's classic song. SET 4: *The Ikettes - Camel Walk [Modern 1964] 45 rpm from Ike & Tina's backup group / b-side. *Robyn Hitchcock - It's a Mystic Trip [Armageddon 1981]. A flexi that came with RH's 1st solo single. Found at the Allentown Record Show many years ago. *Alejandro Escovedo - Break this time.....he's great...that's it.
