Bobby Reed is an awesome 45. Found an original vinyl issue with a crack for $1.00. Sold it for $100. Missed it terribly. Years later here I am again buying a copy with a crack in the deadwax for $175. Yeesh. Foxbase Alpha is one my favorite albums of all time.

I like the way SheilaB's sensibilities extrapolate to years well past 1968, and to future decades, even. Helps me catch up on stuff I blotted out from my awareness during much of the actual 90s, for example.

@DJSheilaB: Being there in the phone room during Todd-O-Phonic Todd’s show and seeing Todd’s face when you ripped him a new one about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (“What is this? 1994!”) was just fan-fucking-tastic. Now THAT’S funny!

In days gone by, songs like "We Find Him Guilty" were referred to as "Go-Go numbers"

was this before or after the Amazulu version?
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:04pm djsheilab:

I played a version by Joyella Blade from 1978 last year. Is that the one you mean? I don't know Amazulu.

Aha, love a minor key song that ends in a major chord.

A bit lascivious for 1946, huh
  Fri. 4/1/16 5:28pm JakeGould:

Oofff. I think there's some double entendre stuff happening here.
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:29pm Honeybear:

They were just as lascivious (or as SheilaB says, "depraved") in those years as we are now... just more artful about it.

"Soundies": they were the music videos of their day.

I bought the Lush box set today!!
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:32pm TDK60:

Apparently there were "soundie" jukeboxes but they were very shortlived, late '40s like you say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/1/16 5:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Soundies' - reminds me of that TV program Michael Feinstein had about music preservation :

I was living in England when this came out too. More than hearing the actual song was just random drunk people in the pub shouting "I WHIP MUH HURRR BACK AND FURTH!"
  Fri. 4/1/16 5:36pm JakeGould:

I'm fine with Willow.
  Fri. 4/1/16 5:36pm P-90:

They used to have these movie jukeboxes called "Panorams", you picked a song and the soundie played on a rear-projection screen. Sometimes also shown as short subjects in theaters.
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:36pm tomasz.:

i bootlegged this with an El-P beat when it came out, which i thought was pretty great, but Soundcloud evidently didn't, cuz they took it down

@Julie: Didn't punk get broken in 1994 or so and labels threw money at tons of bands?

Trying to figure out the name of that screaming guitar player on the Ann Lewis stuff.
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:56pm Honeybear:

I would have been blown away if she was (strictly) Anglo-raised. That's why I had to check. But have there been any non-natively-raised vocalists that have attained some degree of pop success singing Japanese?
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 5:56pm Honeybear:

(Either way, I'm definitely a fan of hers, now).
  Fri. 4/1/16 5:57pm P-90:

McCartney's "Hi, Hi, Hi" might have influenced "Can the Can"
