Wow the Left Banke who did "Walk Away Rene". They had completely dropped put of my memory banke. Wiki says they were practitioners of what was known a baroque pop meaning lots of background strings.

This is an amazing version of the Just My Imagination. Never heard it before. Better than the original version.
Sat. 1/29/11 9:59am Dave:

I think that was the original version of Just My Imagination, with the music removed.

Great show as always...

Hi Jack! hehe
Sat. 1/29/11 10:37am turtle boy:
Yes Wendy, still with the big neon sign and cool graffiti permanently embedded in the booths from the 60's. Maybe I'll get 4 with all today...
Sat. 1/29/11 10:43am Wendy del Formaggio:
Turtle Boy, now you're talkin'! *burp* haha.
Is the bar next door still there? I think it's called Harold's. I'm not much of a bar person, but the look of the place always fascinated me. Frozen in time, in a great way :-)
Sat. 1/29/11 10:44am seang:
Did Mort Shuman write this tune? or Doc Pomus?
Sat. 1/29/11 10:47am turtle boy:
There's a tiny bar in the place but not next door. Tiny as in 6 or 7 seats. When I get my dogs, I do Polar Cream Soda anyway...
Sat. 1/29/11 10:54am Wendy del Formaggio:
Hmm, I must be getting my wires crossed. Whoops! Wow, I haven't had a cream soda in ages. Root beer, well that's a different story :-)
If you ever make it down to Jersey and are in need of a good hot dog or four, may I recommend Rutt's Hutt in Clifton and Hot Dog Johnny's in Buttzville (yes, Buttzville).
Sat. 1/29/11 10:58am turtle boy:
Thanks Wendy! May all your dogs be tasty...
