LNG/KPOO/KCDX etcetcetc for the week of 11/15/10
« on: November 15, 2010, 11:52:24 AM »
Margo Thunder (who?) doing a soulful, more-than-passable cover of "Expressway to Your Heart"

Turns out she was a member of the trio 9.9 (9.9 being "almost a 10", har har), which was Richard "Dimples" Fields' answer to Vanity 6 and the Mary Jane Girls.

NTM: John Lee Hooker's radical re-interp of "I Left My Heart in SF". 

"Mah heart is THERE! HIGH! On a HILL!"

back to the Boardwalk in time for Gladys/Pips' "Bourgie Bourgie" -- the only other place I've ever heard this was on CG.

"and you can take yo' raggedy little component set -- that NEVAH worked! -- and you can SCAT!" My fave spoken-word passage in a song EVAH.  Better than Oran "juice"Jones, even.

lawd, I haven't heard "Street Dance" by Break Machine since the mid-'80s.

Radio de Sebb on a roll: Swingout Sister's fab "Breakout", Ms Summer disco-izing Barry M., and Betty Everett's orig version of "You're No Good".

Find of the Day, courtesy Radio de Sebb: Lou Rawls covering Paul Davis' "I Go Crazy". NTM -- no idea when this was released.

I was listening to that too!  Didn't recognize the voice as Sweet Lou.

Magnificent segue on Radio de Sebb just now: some NTM shouter that was mostly "Gang-gang-gang" repetitions with a few lines about "Blues ain't nothin' but a good woman gone bad!" followed by Gwen Guthrie's "Ain't Nothin' Goin' On but the Rent."

No romance without finance!

I'm doing The Boardwalk this afternoon, but glad you're enjoying R de S -- they can be quite amazing.

Where we live, where we live: the aforementioned Lou Rawls and his phellow Philly Att-Stars urge their listeners to clean up the ghetto.  Fell on deaf ears and dead charts, it seems.

Just heard a phenomenal NTM tune: "Am I Black Enough for You?"  Googled to find out who it was - Larry Grogan came up first, with his take on the Billy Paul song: http://funky16corners.wordpress.com/2007/09/26/billy-paul-am-i-black-enough-for-you/

What a great clavinet opening. I adore that instrument.  Does anyone still bother with it?

doesn't your R de S player ID the artists? Mine does.
