Harry you could a Vietnam cliche soundtrack show -- Hendrix, All Along the Watchtower, CCR Fortunate Son, etc.
  9:20pm Androu B.:

Aww yeah! Pete Zaremba & Co.! I remember when Pete hosted that weekly show for I.R.S. Records that MTV used to air back in the days when MTV was full-on music videos 24/7.
Avatar 🗿 9:20pm Harry Parmenter:

Indeed JF. More familiar however. IRS show on MTV? Vague memory. I bet that was wild.
Avatar 🗿 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm medson:

I think Hamburger Hill got lost as it was released around the same time as Full Metal Jacket etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Scott67:

HI Scobot!!
  9:26pm Androu B.:

Harry, the show was called "The Cutting Edge". Pete Zaremba was the host. The show itself only lasted for 2 years. You can catch clips of it on YT.
  9:27pm Domenico Schmenico:

I.R.S. The Cutting Edge was actually a pretty damn good MTV show sometimes hosted by Peter Zaremba, though I think there were other hosts later. Back in the '80s when I was cutting the early It's Happening episodes, someone called me "The Peter Zaremba of Pasadena"... I told Peter this later on, he cracked up over that one...
Avatar 🗿 9:27pm Harry Parmenter:

was there a parade of rockers behaving badly? or just having fun?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Scott67:

I haven't seen it for decades. But I remember it as pretty gutsy, raw & affecting! Wonder how it aged, or me?
Avatar 🗿 9:27pm Harry Parmenter:

sounds pretty damn good
  9:28pm Domenico Schmenico:

I remember Joey Ramone saying something REALLY funny in a ten-second clip
Avatar 🗿 9:28pm Harry Parmenter:

Hi Lesley!
  9:29pm Androu B.:

Like I said, you can watch clips of it on YT.
  9:29pm Domenico Schmenico:

ALSO there was an episode where The Bangles hosted, riding around in a car with the two in the back playing guitars and all of them singing, and introducing other artists on the show. They walked around a place where old advertising billboards were stored at one point, also singing. That was a very cool episode and I am pretty sure I have it on tape, from my friend Darian S., who was a big Bangles fan then.
Avatar 🗿 9:31pm Harry Parmenter:

that sounds way cool dom thx
  9:32pm Androu B.:

Hi Scobot, LesleyK!

J.J. Cale... Sunday house band @ Whisky a Go Go 1965
Avatar 🗿 9:32pm Harry Parmenter:

Right! Leathercoated Minds, right?
Avatar 🗿 Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Will the Sound Guy:

Hi Scobot LesleyK, and RichardWhig!!!
  9:34pm Domenico Schmenico:

Yes, well that was an exploitation version of J.J. Cale, he went under the name J.J. Cale, I've seen that on a marquee. But that is how he got picked by Viva Records, I'm sure Leon Russell was involved with that LP, on a Snuff Garrett level... maybe even recorded at Leon's house
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Emeline:

Hi Lesley and Richard! 🤩♥️
Avatar 🗿 9:36pm Harry Parmenter:

and one of the Whisky owners told him to go with JJ due to J Cale in The Velvets.
  9:36pm Domenico Schmenico:

b-side of the Our Gang record: "The Theme From Leon's Garage (Hal Records Scab Dates There)"
Avatar 9:36pm David Shortell:

The line "Your love is like a rainbow" is from the song "Rock and Soul Music" from the Fish's excellent 3rd album "Together".
Avatar 🗿 9:37pm Harry Parmenter:

Wow thx both
  9:37pm Domenico Schmenico:

Oh, dear, really? I never heard that one, about the extra "J" in JJ Cale. Velvets played The Trip in May of '66 though... and the pic I've seen of Whisky a Go Go says JJ Cale so...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm marpay:

HI Lesley!!
  9:39pm Domenico Schmenico:

David Shortell... YES... "Rock and Soul Music"... that is the song they do on the Woodstock soundtrack... and it sounds very garage. It's funny because back in the '80s every Garage fan or Rockabilly or Mod absolutely HATED the whole idea of Woodstock. You couldn't have told them there was a Garage track on there, they'd laugh "as if"
Avatar 9:41pm David Shortell:

Some good stuff never made it into the Woodstock doc. CCR, for example.
  9:41pm Domenico Schmenico:

Typical Mod comment about Woodstock: "I don't know... too much mud."
  9:42pm Jo Fuentes:

Ah some Dolls
  9:43pm Domenico Schmenico:

YES... CCR's "Keep on Chooglin'" should have been on there instead of that Ten Years After thing which of course was popular with general Woodstock fans but not a fave of the Post-Punk set 'tall.
