In the summer of '69...I bought an LP by a band called Led Zeppelin on the recomendation of a friend...I had never heard them before.
This is the first track on that LP that I listened to and to be honest I wasn't that impressed. However, over the years I ended up playing that LP again and again untill it wore out and was replaced by a CD.

The big band is the Oliver Nelson band...Jimmy Smith turned the Hammond organ from a church organ into a jazz instrument.

One of those "you had to be there" songs. A few years ago sat with my lady in an open air restaurant terrace overlooking the marina in Key Largo. Watched the sun going into the ocean, the masts of the yachts silhouetted, swaying gently in the warm evening breeze...a cuba libre
in one hand and a menu in the other...when this song started playing in the background. It's times like that that makes all the other shit bearable.




There is no such place as kokomo in the Keys BTW

Isaac Hayes has probably written and produced some of the Cooooolest music EVER. If you ever go to New York, as the plane approaches Kennedy, look out of the window at the city and I'll guarantee this song will flash through your brain.

A late 60's album track, well crafted and multi-layered ....non of your endlessly repeated riffs then.

The word "masterpiece" is over used in the art world, but Giacomo Puccini's "Tosca" is IMO truly a masterpiece. He wrote some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard and this opera is awash with great songs. As a bonus, Angela Gheorghiu is my favourite MILFEvil

This wasn't considered good enough to be an "A" side so they put it on the back of Help. Doh! Rolleyes

Another song from "Tosca" .....He is really too old and too fat for the part........but there aren't any twentysomething singers about with a mature tenor voice like Domingo.

This song has been recorded by such diverse people as Joe Cocker, Aerosmith and ErmSusan Boyle. But this 1955 original is still the yardstick by which to judge this ubber cool jazz/blues offering.




And hats off to any lyricist who can rhyme plebeian with "me an"Thumbsup

Excerpt from Wikipedia;
Their first out of town show was at a working mans club in Sheffield. Since the crowd was mainly made up of Teddy Boys and hard drinking workers, the band were paid off after three songs. Despondent, they literally walked into the Mod-orientated King Mojo Club nearby (then owned by a young Peter Stringfellow) and offered to perform for free. They played a set that had the local Mods wanting more and started a strong buzz.

This song still gives me a "strong buzz"

BTW....this would have been 1965/6 ish so Teddy Boys were long gone. They probably mean Rockers.
