Eric Dolphy was so cool!! Beard & Hat is a great song!
Sat. 3/4/17 9:27am Stuart Rose:
Woke up a bit late and missed that fine pop of Gary Lewis and the Turtles,
In time,though,for that smoky bass clarinet of Dolphy's getting all angular.
Sat. 3/4/17 9:28am Mike tp:
Tune sounds like welfare Cadillac. So so funny. Forgot the artist for now.

Sat. 3/4/17 9:31am Bob G:
Holy shit, I played the hell out of Ol Rivers (and his Christmas record) when I was a kid. This is really flooding the memory banks. Morning Bob!!
Sat. 3/4/17 9:32am Jeff:
Walter Brennan was an extreme right wing douchebag! (but, I loved him on the Real McCoys

Hey Bob, Richard Manuel or Rick Danko?

That whole Gonzales album is beautiful. He has a more recent, Solo Piano II, I think.
Sat. 3/4/17 10:09am Snortley:
According to the internet, "louve" is French for "she wolf."
Sat. 3/4/17 10:16am WilliamfromDumont:
The singer on "Roof" sounds familiar.
Sat. 3/4/17 10:17am Stuart Rose:
Isn't Funny how love can Be an Ivy League song?
Sat. 3/4/17 10:19am Kevin:
Sounds like Ben E. King on "roof", too obvious?
Sat. 3/4/17 10:28am pierre:
@Snortley: the internet is right;
Bonjour Bob an listeners !
Sat. 3/4/17 10:30am fred:

Sat. 3/4/17 10:32am pierre:
@fred : i'm going to try, yes. Some good stuff this year. 22 and 23 of march looks like my kind of thing. Will I see you ?
Sat. 3/4/17 10:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
@Stuart: Yes - there's notably YT of them doing it Live @ the NME awards 1964... Reportedly singing background on TheWh♂'s 'I Can't Explain' was their big break.
