Martin Denny - Quiet Village

 I've had tons of this 45 in the past but never paid attention to it. This summer I found a whole mess of Martin Denny LP's and on a whim I purchased them. Wow, I really enjoyed them. I really had missed out as I see them all over. I dug through my boxes and found these...seems I am now on a mission

The Festivals- You've Got The Makings of A Lover & High Wide And Handome

Wow, it's been a month since I last posted. I seem to be losing track of time...COVID19 is getting on my everlasting nerves. Thought I would post a nice Soul doubleside. Enjoy

The Augustine Twins - Everyday Of My Life

Ok, so yes I have been home for the duration of this health fiasco. And yes, I started strongly with uploads but quickly split my time (when not working) on other things. And then Blogger updated their interface and it took me a while to figure out how to embed a song..the wonders of technology. But here I am with a really nice Soul ballad. Maybe if I get some requests I may get motivated to upload more ...hint hint

Stars - Take Me To The Riot

A few weeks ago I went to Lowes on a Saturday. On the way home I saw in a food truck parked in former car dealer parking lot. But the amazing thing was all the people who were milling around the parking lot in line for food...I thought of this song. Now there seems to be people protesting the social distancing...get a grip people!

Laurie Anderson- Language Is A Virus

Ok, I will admit this will not be the cup of tea for most people. But I remember seeing this when I was an undergraduate in 1986, This public access TV station that played alternative videos would play stuff on the fringe (hmm, many things now in my collection). I was enamored by the strangeness. I found a copy of this on promo 45 and also this interesting 2 lp interview LP. This originally was released on a 5 album box set called United States Live (I still have all of them) and then abridged into 1 LP.  Laurie later married Lou Reed and held him when he died...On a happier note, check out the video and there is a scene where she is dancing with William Burroughs...pretty cool

Frankie Ford- Alimony

I was unable to get a haircut before the COVID-19 shut down everything. So to go along with my unruly hair, I decided I would grow my beard out (was thinking Robert E Lee, or Anyway, I was given an ultimatum by wife this weekend...trim the beard back to it's normal look, or sleep on the couch and I will chop it while you sleep....I thought about being defiant (for 2 seconds, anyway) and then buckled. It is better to trim the beard, then pay "Alimony"
