'LNG/KPOO/KCDX etcetcetc for the week of 4/5/10

Lawd! JJ plays a NTM version of "Save the Country" by Thelma Houston. Decidedly more soulful than Ms. McCoo's take.  Lay that devil DOWN!

'LNG's Bob Shannon plays Peggy Scott & JoJo Benson's orig version of "Soul Shake", later covered by Delaney & Bonnie. What a fab single, with a boatload of first-class Nashville session players backing up Peggy & JoJo.

Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler) on OffShore radio sounding pretty good.  

also, I caught a brief mondegreen.  

I thought he was saying:

Oh, make me wanna holler,
and throw up on my hands


(it's actually "...both my hands...")

NTM: MUD --  Tiger Feet.  Raucous glammy stuff, reminiscent of T-Rex and Sweet.

(Roy seems pretty tall, eh?).  My local rawk station (WCMF) used to play this crunchy nugget a lot.

Yeah, very T-Rex-y -- they had 14 top-20 singles in 3 years ('73-'76) in the UK, including 2 #1's... and did absolutely zilch on these shores.

'LNG plays yet another obscure '60s band that is NTM: the Everpresent Fullness, with "Wild About My Lovin", a song wriiten by a young Warren Zevon.

ooo! 'LNG digs up Patti Drew's orig of "Workin' on a Groovy Thing", covered by the 5-D. I prefer this version, actually.

Woofa Toofa Goofa Loofa!  Listening to Li'l Steven's show and it's his 8th anniv special with special guest Peter Wolf (who has a new album out, apparently).  Great stuff.

ETA: Steven closed the show with a track from Wolf's new CD: a duet with... Merle Haggard! Just beautiful.

Offshore plays Keith West's "Excerpt From a Teenage Opera" (aka "Grocer Jack") -- this was a CG staple when I was listening to them regularly 5 or 6 years ago.  Love the kiddie chorus.
