You get a mention, Joe. (last verse)

I know a dark secluded place
A place where no one knows your face
A glass of wine, a fast embrace
It's called Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
And all you'll see are silhouettes
And all you'll hear are castanets
And no one cares how late it gets
Not at Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
At the Golden Fingerbowl or any place you go
You will meet your Uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you'll go the spot that I am thinkin' of

You will be free to gaze at me and talk of love
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
You're in Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
You're in Hernando's Hideaway

@tadpoles: They were both presenters - but Sandie was the barefoot one I think...But I got to read wigkey say:
...'While McGowan had answered an advert for 'a typical teenager' to work as an advisor, she found herself presenting the show. Her strength was that her status as a fan of the artists was evident in her style; stumbling over her lines, losing her cool and apparent inexperience only made her more popular, and by the end she was presenting the show alone. She may have been the inspiration for Susan Campy from the Beatles' 1964 film A Hard Day's Night, when George Harrison tells the producer of a fictitious teen television show that Campy is "... that posh bird who gets everything wrong", to which the producer played by Kenneth Haigh replies, "She's a trendsetter. It's her profession." '...

Grace Slick's band with her brother who also originally did "Somebody To Love"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 11:35am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It is a kewl cover. The Jaynettes' original is kinda haunting already. Yeah Grace jumped TheGreat!Society for the Airplane - & took 'Somebody to Love' w/ her.
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:35am Will:

That's Grace alright and her husband Darby on the git.
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:35am frenchee:

Oh c'mon @Judger, this is sooo good. Wait, I missed Percussive LPs? My fave in that series is Percussive Pineapples. MMMM, pineapples....
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:35am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Yep, that's Grace. I thought this was the Pentangle version for the first few seconds, but actually prefer this jammed-out version. Thanks Joe!
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:36am Judger:

i hear ya
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:36am Joe McG:

@frenchee: Yes, it's Gracie. I LOVE this song, too. We may even hear another version if the show holds out long enough...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/3/17 11:36am Guido from Cologne:

Grace also plays the organ on this.
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:37am Joe McG:

I like the applause after the hippie jammitude!

So who used to jockey in Illinois (and stole records from WKCC?!)
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:46am frenchee:

I'm havin' flashbacks! Thanks for this groovy grooves set, Joe McG.
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:46am Joe McG:

I'm not much of a metal fan, as regular listeners know, but this song has several redeeming features: There's that bolero part, the part where it boogies (just begun), and then there's the stolen riff. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/3/17 11:46am Guido from Cologne:

next thing will be Blues Magoos "Ain't Got Nothing Yet" and Purple "Black Night"?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 11:46am Summer and Michael:

We had this Deep Purple live album. It was a double. And I think it had a total of about 7 songs - 2 each on three sides and 1 more taking up the last...
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:47am Joe McG:

@Tyler: Don't tell them we have it! @Guido: ha ha ha! Purple is worse than Zeppelin with the sticky fingers.
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:48am Brendan:

Ian Gillan has said that "Child in Time" is based on It's a Beautiful Day's psychedelic song "Bombay Calling".[1] It's a Beautiful Day in return borrowed Purple's "Wring That Neck" and turned it into "Don and Dewey" on their second album Marrying Maiden (1970). ~Wiki

well isn't that all friendly and tradesy. damn dirty hippies, sharing everything....

Loved the show!
Must run!

Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:49am Joe McG:

@Tyler: It's OK by me, but I think WKCC might have our copy of "In Rock" since ours isn't here! Exchange program.

loverly Purple, Joe! Happy happy to ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 11:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Purple always had pretenses of Classical influence - BaroquePsych & then Prog...Make mine the related CaptainBeyond for ProgMetal - who picked up loose members from both U.S. & UK bands...
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 11:51am Joe McG:

I never listened to the lyrics before. Is this an anti-war song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 11:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...they were very early as Metal bands go. This thing of a HardRawk period then that wasn't all Metal yet is talked about these days...
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:53am tadpoles:

When did Metal first get coined? Early Deep Purple was always just called "Hard Rock" ... loved it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/3/17 11:53am Planet Tyler:

Joe, WKCC isnt around anymore le' google says so we're stuck w it.

Have a great day tomorrow everyone, those not working ofcourse.

Even Sabbath's fast mode was a Boogie. Surprising how early they were, really.

'Heavy' was already a Hip term...wouldn't be surprised if BlueCheer had already called themselves HeavyMetal by accident...

LOOOOOOVE. You go 'round, Joe! <rose emoticon>
  Mon. 7/3/17 11:57am Rudd Dimension:

Steppenwolf's "Heavy Metal Thunder" was an early reference, I would think.
