Options May 1, 2006: The Dusty Show - Episode XXVII

Listen to this show:

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments
The Alarm  The Stand   Options The Alarm  A&M  1983  LP   
The Byrds  The Bells Of Rhymney   Options The Now Sound  Columbia Special Products  1965  LP  Written by P. Seeger/ I Davies The version I played was from a promotional compilation CD distributed by Der Weinerschnitzel Hot Dog Restaurants! 
The Surfaris  Surfer Joe   Options Wipe Out  Dot  1963    This B Side seems to be a song that everyone (older!) knows somehow. Probably because it's great. Certain songs like this remind me of the Zenith console stereo in my living room as a kid and the teeth marks I put in it when I was just tall enough to look inside to see the records turning around. I think I 'teethed" on it! 
The Swimming Pool Cues  Rat Bait   Options The Deep End  DB  1981    Woefully little on the net about this great Atlanta band. I believe this has been re-issued on CD. Great live act. 
Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends  Flashing Lights   Options Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends  Cotillion  1970  LP  Practically a Led Zeppelin LP sans Plant. Page and Bonham assist the legendary Lord Sutch, relatively unknown in the US but sa colorful figure in swinging London. Read all about this fascinating character who sadly hanged himself in 1999 in this Wikipedia entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_Lord_Sutch 
Paul McCartney  Ram On   Options Ram  Apple  1971  LP  Lo-Fi Paul. A sentimental fave. Larry from Lackawack shed tears over this and I don't blame him. Simple. Melodic. Paul. Ram On! 
String Driven Thing  To See You   Options The Machine That Cried  Charisma  1973  LP  Quite popular across the pond in its day. The Dylan influence is obvious. James from England wrote to tell me this song reminded him of riding his motorcycle way back then in his red leather trousers. Nice! I like when the songs I play stir up memories for people. Music is so magical that way. As cliche as that sounds. 
 
Dusty sings the ultimate love song.
 
Production music from the 80's.
Sammy Davis, Jr.  Spinning Wheel   Options Something For Everyone  Motown  1970  LP  The grooviest! You have to love Sammy. Even when he kissed Nixon. Here, has one eye on the past and one on the future even though he had but one eye! An amazing rendition of the David Clyton-Thomas classic. Doin' his own thing man! 
The Wrest  Bet Your Sweet Bippy   Options   Target  1969  45  I just found out this was a Wisconsin band! And of course, The Dusty Show is produced here in Wisconsin as well. So I can enjoy fame by geographical association. This was of course inspired by the Bet Your Sweet Bippy phrase employed on TV's Rowan and MArtin's Laugh-In which also gave us the phrase "Here Come Da Judge!" 
Vanessa Redgrave  Pink Angora   Options Red and Blue  United Artists  1967    From the short film Red and Blue. Still not sure exactly what is happening in this song. I guess she is riding around on a motorbike seducing men in her pink angora sweater. 
Sandy Nelson  Teen Beat   Options Teen Beat  Imperial  1959  LP  He made many many great drum albums that get quite experimental later on in his career. He also had a big hit with "Let There Be Drums" and actually lost a foot in an accident in 1962. Here is a great read on Sandy Nelson. http://www.spaceagepop.com/nelson.htm 
Adam And The Ants  Antmusic   Options Kings Of The Wild Frontier  CBS  1980  LP  Fun! They hooked up with Pistols svengali Malcolm Macleran to help them get over. Even though some band members defected to Bow Wow Wow. Remember when he broke his ankle on TV? I think it was the Motown 25 show or something. 
 
Over The Hutch
Timmy Thomas  Why Can't We Live Together   Options Adam VIII Presents Soul Train  Adam VIII Ltd.  1973  LP  This is so cool. Just an organ and a primitive drum machine and Timmy. This never ever stops sounding good to me. Thomas was house organist for the legendary Miami TK (Glades) label. Steve Winwood later recorded this song. 
 
Prepping for Iron Mike Lupica
Bloodrock  It's A Sad World (Edit)   Options USA  Capitol  1972  LP  I knew it wasn't just me. I just went online and read skads of great reviews of this LP. And I always felt guilty about it being one my favorites. It really is a good album. My only regret is that I wimped out and edited it down. I will play more in the future. Be warned. 
  I got lots of e-mail from this music show. I don't ordinarily play so much music. Thanks for checking in! I would love to hear from YOU. Yes YOU! Why haven't you e-mailed yet? dusty@wfmu.org And .... call the Dusty Show Answering Machine at 201.521.1375 immediately to leave some whacky s--t I can play on the show. I cannot believe that someone as creative and strange as you must be to even be reading this right now isn't compelled to call and drain your mind on tape so I can make you a mini-star. 201.521.1375 Seriously .... I really love the Dusty listeners. you guys are the best and I really appreciate your continued support. I know the show sucks about half-the-time. I'm trying! Please tune in frequently. And now my friends. I'm going to bed. I wish you maximum pleasantness in all your experiences. Always remember ...... The Pidge.
