Arthur Lee and the L.A.G's - The Ninth Wave / Rumble Still Skins

 Picked this one up in Tennessee a few weeks ago. Pre Arthur Lee LOVE and it is in my surf discography but I am not sure if I would classify this as surf and not as notable in my opinion as the stuff he did with LOVE.

The Harrison Gospel Singers- A Charge To Keep

Cover version week went well I think. I left some on the table so to speak so I am prepared for a part time in the future. This one was a little rough but it was so good I could not resist uploading it.

Fantastic Dee Jays - You're The One

I almost misseed today. I was up early to go to the flea market and then when I got home I ended up doing some things and just about forgot. With tonights post, I love it when I learn something new. Most people know the Vogues version as it was a smash and I wondered which came me suprised when I learned Petula Clark co-wrote it and recorded it first. I bounced over to youtube and listened to her version and damn it's good. This appears to be a cover of a cover of an original...say that three

Tammi Terrell - This Old Heart Of Mine

I recorded enough covers for a few weeks of these posts. This one I think presents an interesting question. If I am correct, this was recorded before the Isley Brothers version; however, it was never released at that time and the Isley Borthers then had a hit. It was only afterwards that this was released. So would this be considered a cover version since it was not released until after the Isley Brothers? Probably not but enjoy none the less

Julian Cope - 5 O'Clock World

 I was in slo motion this morning. Cooper and I went for a late 5:30a walk (for us anyway). I am heading to the office for a few hours this morning and I am already wishing for 5 O'Clock. I picked up Julian in Denver in February on my trip and I think Julian Cope should make more appearances on this blog. I noticed that T Tex Edwards seemed to be quite popular yesterday...sometimes I guess I get it right.

Thought I would add a few pictures of Cooper....1st one is on vacation as he was looking for bigfoot.. 2nd picture is once we were home...I guess my boy was tired

T. Tex Edwards & Out On Parole - L.S.D / Psycho

What would cover version week be without country covers-ok, not traditional country that is for sure. We have Tex Edwards putting out an lp of obscure left field country cover versions. Back in the day, I would buy everything on SFTRI...Over the years I have gotten rid of many of them but this one has stayed put. The original versions of these songs are nearly impossible to find and the only ones from the LP I have found is The Rubber Room by Porter Wagoner (found 3 copies)

Rollins Band - Earache My Eye

Cover version week continues with a heavy one. I have written about my love with Sub Pop in the past and while I have sold of a bunch of my Sub Pop albums I have kept all my 45's. At some point in the near future I will start thining that herd as well. Who can resist Henry Rollins covering Cheech & Chong. I have the pink, red and black vinyl versions and there is nothing wrong with the red vinyl version...somehow my phone camera made it look distorted.

As a sound note, I noticed with yesterday's post some weird sounds in the recording. I realized that as I was recording 45s, I was taking pictures of 45s and sleeves. Well my phone is linked with my computer so when I would take a picture it would do an alert on my computer to ask me what I wanted to do. My guess some of these upcoming posts will have this issue. Much apologies and I guess I need to take pictuers when I am not recording
