Sonntag 27 Nov 2022. Jimi woulda been 80. 0500-0700 after coast to coast Am, the darker side on WHRB. Lotsa good rap/hip-hop PLUS lotsa songs from Rhino release of What It Is! funky soul and rare grooves 1967-1977 so this is the GREAT stuff. But, of the cuts played, what REALLY caught my ear Ananda Shankar doing a very funky "Jumpin Jack Flash"! This is ravi's nephew, this Nora Jones cuzzin and in 1970 he released an album on reprise with a 45 of "Jumpin jack Flash" b/w "Light my fire"! youtube video and co-producer was my facebook friend james Lowe of Electric Prunes! i guess I DID "have too much to dream last night".....

"Monntag 28 Nov 2022. And what 2020 SOMERVILLE GROOVES purchase is stuck weekly on my turntable this week? The Holyridge Strings play the Hits of Simon and garfunkel. $1.99, rainbow Capital label! went to discogs, this is a 1968 release, meaning you have muzak versions from sounds of silence to bookends albums (which i bought through Columbia record club in '69). In '68 (No questions with 67!) I bought, through capital record club, Holyridge strings doing the beatles. BUt "the tymes they were a changing!" Muzak versions of Gizmo and garfunkel in '68 versus the 22 Nov 68 release of the white album; "Baby, I;m so square (I don' care!)"....

Buckshot George
day of Woden 30 november 2022. also saint andrew's day in scotland. 1100 listening to Sun ra on jazz spectrum: "tomorrow we start our orgy season'. looked at program guide: Lou reed orgy! that was Ida may; as for Ida may,west virginny: check out the vid of Buckshot George doin' "Burn down the trailer park"! being Virginia born, in a trailer, I Love it to Death! On FOUR string bass ("Gimme back my ForeStrings!") is Rob Lyon of jesse and the Hogg Brothers and owner of Gizmo the Cat (like felix, shudder to think about his bag of Trix!). Visually, it's obviously a parody 0f trailer life (and filmed in Ken'sTucky!) and musically, since in janaury '76 I was listening to the ted Nugent album with "Motor city madhouse" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gimme back my bullets; SO pissed off and sober i joined the marines that month!

I call this song Lynyrd Gizmo; again if I'd recorded in january '76 vs. 20 march 76. Chords aere I-VI-V ala "great white buffalo" or 'working for the stanton park"; they even have a Miss Ruby Starr in tyhe vocals! (well i DID interview Black Oak arkansas in Lousiville kain-tuck Ju-lie '74 after I et 'at a macdonald's in tenesse"....Thus band rocks in a nashville Poontang kinda way! (Blair was Gizmos fan, i hear; RE-intervoiew Stenson eddie floweres for podcast!). More music from these folks please! Southern Fried Highand-Hixx humour"......
