This playlist is going to be a mile long from the group names alone...

I’m not really digging the choral vocals but like the instrumental arrangement.
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:25pm Erica:

The artist/group name is indeed a mouthful to pronounce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

@Matt - The vocals make more sense as we go along. I'm pretty sure that isn't what Dylan had in mind when he wrote that song

I was just wondering that too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

That was a stupid question as he was a guitarist and his name is in the long ass band name

This song pops up again in a different arrangement with a different title
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Later in the show...
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

I remember Steve Allen would always have the groups that the kids liked on his show. I seem to remember Professor Irwin Corey and Jane Meadows looking startled as Blue Cheer made a god awful racket, but Steve just handled in his breezily sarcastic fashion. Then there was his commercial for Mocha Mix, where he banged out the jingle on the piano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

I know he got very conservative/reactionary late in life, but Steve Allen was a funny guy, who kept even funnier company.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:46pm Little Danny:

Steve Allen seemed like a pretty hip cat for what he was in his time.

He also has a cool read of "Song For My Father" from a year or two earlier, which I feel like Larry has featured at some point on this show
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:47pm Erica:

The only song by Blue Cheer I've heard of is their version of "Summertime Blues", which didn't make as much sense as the original. Surprised Steve kept it cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:47pm Little Danny:

Ahhh "Flowers and Love"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:48pm Funky16Corners:

@Danny - I don't remember if I played that one, but I have played his versions of 'California Soul' and Son Of A Preacher Man, which he recorded for Flying Dutchman
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:50pm Franco Twinkie:

I read in Tosh Bermans memoir that him and his dad, Wallace Berman, the legendary beat artist sat next to Steve Allen and his wife Jane Meadows at the Santa Monica Civic the first time David Bowie played in Los Angeles. I wonder if he was wearing a suit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

Feedback on a Steve Allen record!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:51pm Little Danny:

Szabo doesn't get the credit he deserves for being such a pioneer of feedback
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

I think if he hadn't died so young he'd be better respected today. he's one of my favorites
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - a suit and black dress socks
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh man, Gabor Szabo played The Avalon Ballroom!
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:53pm Erica:

The narration in the beginning sounds sleepy compared to the Animals version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:53pm Funky16Corners:

I'd love to see a comprehensive list of jazz artists that Graham booked into his ballrooms
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:53pm Erica:

I meant this version is sleepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:54pm Little Danny:

@Larry: I think Szabo's Now Sound crossovers also hurt his reputation with both the jazz crowd and the counterculture
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:54pm Franco Twinkie:

That's because Gabor had gone native....If you know what I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

@Danny - I think you're right. Which is a shame because I like those albums a lot
  Wed. 10/9/19 10:56pm Johnny Boy:

I really like this version. Go Gabor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:56pm Matt from New Orleans:

I saw a concert at the Avalon when it briefly reopened as a concert venue last decade. I can’t remember who I saw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 10:56pm Funky16Corners:

@Johnny - Yeah, it really works well in this format
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 10:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, so did Chresti and I! We saw The Mermen, a psychedelic surf power trio with a full on light show. It was the night before Easter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:00pm Little Danny:

That sounds awesome, Franco
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:00pm Funky16Corners:

Back in the 80s there was a club night in NYC that was part of the garage/mod revival, called The Minds Eye. They has a full psychedelic light show, which our band was lucky enough to play in front of
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

Was indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

@Johnny Boy - Did you play the Minds Eye with us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:03pm Little Danny:

I always forget about your '80s garage band past, Larry. Any live footage anywhere on YouTube? Kinda shocking how much has turned up from that time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:04pm Little Danny:

Great set btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:05pm Funky16Corners:

@Danny - I'm getting to the age where I may start forgetting about it. No live footage from the 80s but there is a clip on Youtube from a reunion at Asbury Lanes maybe ten years ago

I like these original songs, very groovy. Also I realized Gabor Szabo & the California Dreamers are a three-in-one easy listening, jazz and pop band. Worked well in the 60s.

For about a year a friend of ours lived a block from The Jefferson Airplane mansion on Fulton, across from the park.It was a great place! But unfortunately his downstairs neighbor was insane and possibly dismembered his mother there, so he moved.

As far as I can tell this is Scott's first album as a leader (maybe his first overall). Very different that what he would do with the LA Express and Joni Mitchell.

Soft edges for those over thirty. Can't blame 'em.

Scott sounds much funkier than everyone else in the band on this Aretha cover, but I guess that's the point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/9/19 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

There's a great transitional phase in vocal arranging in the mid 60s, from Ray Conniff type stuff to things like this and many of Curt Boettcher's arrangements. Even Anita Kerr got hip.

@Larry, spot-on re: this period of '60s vocal arrangements. I think there's like one or two other representative arrangers that I'm blanking on at the moment

It's personal taste,of course, but to my ears Tim Scott puts a ton of energy into these tracks, lifts then up (he even goes "out" a bit in North).
