Avatar 3:40pm djsheilab:

Oh yesss! Thank you @Andrew. More to add to the sparkling new "rejection records" genre.
  3:42pm Beth:

Morrissey has a few rejection songs - as you'd expect - e.g. I Don't Mind if You Forget Me with the line "Rejection is one thing but rejection by a fool is cruel"

@gaylord Yes indeed. I always keep it handy incase things die down.

This is very hard tock for Leslie Gore! Nice!

this lesley gore is outstanding.

@djsheilab: Ha! I use it in the exact same way!

And speaking of DJing, did you end up playing that Adam & Eve song you were on the fence about?
Avatar 3:54pm statoj:

Er, I meant "rock"...

Hello all!! Great set!

Not an expensive Lesley Gore 45 either! And a guaranteed floor filler!

In case anyone was wondering, the Chinchillas are a band. No females in the group, though. chinchillas.x10host.com
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:58pm listener james from westwood:

Is this the same Paola who does that "Rainbow in the Dark" cut/Dio cover (?) Bill Kelly's occasionally played, I wonder? I had a feeling it was her before I saw the playlist, and now I'm nearly positive.
Avatar 3:59pm statoj:

Sheila, Do you know a early 70s girl rock band called "Fanny"? Two Hawaian sisters- June and Jean Milligan who play electric guitar and bass, and a piano player named Nicki. Great original rock and roll. And others too.

Avatar 4:08pm statoj:

I had 2 of their records in the 90s but lost them (aaah!). I never knew they had a single. I think there may be another band called Fanny. My "Fanny" has June and Jean Milligan and I know you would love them. I cannot remember any song titles but will research and try to jog my memory. Thx!
  4:09pm Will:

I remember Fanny being kind of a boogie/blues type outfit, and their best songs could be covers (e.g. "Badge" by Cream and "Special Care" by Buffalo Springfield).
  4:11pm revsgroup:

Utopian bliss
  4:15pm modchick65:

That Lesley Gore song was phenomenal.
  4:15pm P-90:

Bonjour Sheila B. et Les Boomeres!
  4:19pm modchick65:

This Dawn song is awesome, too.
Avatar 4:21pm statoj:

That must be the other Fanny. This one was straight out garage rock, all girl, think The Runaways/Bangles/ with maybe a little San Francisco psychelic thrown in. Kind of like Tia Carrere's act in Wayne's World.

  4:29pm modchick65:

Omg, I LOVE this Tony Hatch song. Love all that '60s production music. Anyone remember the cd comp called "Music For TV Dinners"? It had all the great Alan Hawkshaw stuff on it ("Girl In A Sports Car") and Laurie Johnson's "Chase That Car" from the Avengers? So great.

Today's Fun Fact: "Love Kitten," by Noreen Corcoran, is only the second-best song recorded by a member of the cast of Bachelor Father and released on Vee Jay:

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:41pm listener james from westwood:

@modchick65: Love that collection! Love production music like that, too. It's like musical DNA woven into the culture.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Gaylord Fields:

@djsheilab: In 2013, I saw Lou Christie as the special guest star at the Palm Springs Follies (R.I.P.)! He put on a hell of a show, and I was happy to hear that he could still get that falsetto up there! I was too intimidated to go up to him afterward when he was hanging out in front of the theater. I was afraid I'd blurt out something gushy, like telling him that "Egyptian Shumba" is the greatest song ever recorded!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:42pm listener james from westwood:

@SheilaB that Lou Christie story was adorable. Dug the track, too. The refrain reminded me of early Cher solo work for some reason. In a slightly lower register!
Avatar 4:43pm djsheilab:

@Monica That's a BIG compliment coming from you. I adore adore adore your show.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 4:43pm listener james from westwood:

They interviewed Christie at the "Nomi Song" premiere; his extensive reply (and raves for Nomi) are among the DVD extras.
  4:46pm Seep:

Egyptian Shumba? bah. Trapeze!
Avatar 4:47pm djsheilab:

Sorry my "Trapeze" copy was so beat. A surface noise special as Todd-O-Phonic-Todd would say!

one more Joe Simon comment -- another great 45 is 'just like yesterday' on the irral label. but it's a pricier Joe Simon 45.
