Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Left field question, prompted by 5 Royales sound, and now Mills boys (and, speaking of cutting-pasting):
Does anyone know what group's vocals are being edited/manipulated in Bathtime in Clerkenwell by The Real Tuesday Weld? Sounds like early Mills Brothers, but heard something else recently that could be a candidate. Sure don't think the vocals were freshly created.

I first heard the song “Mama Tried” last New Years Eve being done by a Grateful Dead tribute which led me to Merle Haggard’s original version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm dutchtheo:

Hello Uncle Michael & hinky dinks
In 1959, Ace Records removed Smith's vocal track from the original recording of his song "Sea Cruise" and replaced it with a vocal track by singer Frankie Ford.[3] The song was Ford's first hit, selling over a million copies. Ace's decision to release the song with the Ford vocal and to not release Smith's original version meant that Smith was unable to fully benefit from his own work, and the move by Ace is considered by music historians to be an example of racial injustice in the 1950s pop-music industry. (Smith's original version of the song was eventually released.)

I have a Minnesota relative involved with a coop that originally installed phone service in farming areas. When the coop provided residential Internet access a few years back, they...installed fiber to residences. It was cheaper. Imagine...

I'm not getting enough fiber.

I use to take it for granted I would be able to swim in rivers in Northern California my whole life. Now it seems so far away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Uncle Michael:

I'll never swim the Kern River again.
  2:39pm Gerry from Miami:

Whoa! Just discovered you played Biff Rose earlier. I remember buying that album for 99 cents in a Thrifty(now CVS) Drug Store in LA in 1971. Got some Tim Hardin and Donovan discs as well, same price.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Franco Twinkie:

Gerry, The Thrifty Drug Store had the best cut-out bins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Uncle Michael:

Dean, is this as good as you remember?

Avatar 2:51pm Listening Out There:

Nine more minutes, UM. You'll make it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Jeff Golick:

Kinda feel like it was my fault. Gonna go away now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Uncle Michael:

hahaha! No.
  2:52pm Gerry from Miami:

@Franco Twinkie. Yes, they always had great cut-outs. But my real discovery in those long-ago days was a now defunct department store known as White Front. They had thousands of these LPs with the holes drilled through the corner or the corner simply cut off. Got all my Bonzo Dog Band and Keith Emerson with the Nice records there(along with several hundred others before they went out of business).
Avatar 2:52pm Listening Out There:

Used to bike to White Front to get LPs. Always great deals...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm doctorjazz:

Brisk tempo on Going Down the Road, fun!
  2:53pm KWilde:
