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.

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

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.

John Mayall is the godfather of British blues...over the last 50+ years, anybody who was anybody in Brit Rock and Blues has played with him. "The Turning Point" is a classic album featuring his band without a drummer ....what he called "blues without bashing" Whether he did it deliberately as an experiment, as I've no doubt he would claim, or just couldn't get a suitable drummer at the time, only he will be able to tell.

When I was 12, my parents moved out to Killamarsh to run a Beer off. I was just becoming aware of girls and that summer a travelling fair pitched up on the Rec behind our shop. I spent the days and nights hanging about the Waltzer with my mates, trying to look coolLaugh
while the girls stood at the other side whispering and giggling. This song was the big summer hit and was constantly belted out on the Waltzer. Whenever I hear it I can almost smell the diesel and the candy floss and hear the girls scream as they were twirled on the ride.......Happy DaysContent

I've always liked music from the Big Band "Swing Era" of the late thirties and early forties. It's the soundtrack to which our fathers and grandfathers fought a war, and some amazing music was produced primarily for dancing. This Cole Porter song was the first big hit for Artie Shaw and his arranger Jerry Gray in 1938, and subsequently became a standard that was recorded by all the big bands of the day.
It just personifies what "swing" is all about and if this doesn't get your feet tapping, you probably don't have a pulse.

I saw these on two or three occasions at the City Hall in the seventies and they were always good value. The lead singer Ian Hunter, was always quite happy to come into the bar and have a drink and a chat with the punters. This is their best known song and biggest hit written for then by David Bowie. I should think everybody on the planet must have heard it at some time.

The Yardbirds were notable for starting the careers of three of Rocks greatest guitarists. Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. When they split in 1968, Page, went on to form Led Zeppelin and Beck formed his own band with a youthful Rod Stewart as lead singer. Clapton's career probably eclipsed all of them....just. This 1966 release has both Page and Beck in the line up and features Beck's innovative psychedelic solo which was becoming fashionable in music at that time. I bought this single and still have it .....somewhereHm
