I know I've said a septillion times, but I live Where Bo Diddley lived and died. The downtown plaza is named after him. I was thrilled when I noticed that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

huh - of course....the only version of mellow down easy i ever heard is by zz top, and somehow never thought about seeking out the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 10:12pm Funky16Corners:

Bo was the truth, as was Little Walter. There's a great 2CD comp of Little Walter's best stuff that is indispensible.

Have that Little Walter double cd & was obsessed with it for a while. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 10:23pm Funky16Corners:

There's a lot to be obsessed about, especially if you dig that harp sound.
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 10:24pm Jeff Ash:

If this set is going where I think it's going, all these groups made the rounds of the old roadhouse/campus/frat/nightclub circuit that existed in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan during the mid to late '60s

I love it!

The Jersey Shore go a little of that action via NYC during the 60s. Bands would come down and play in Asbury Park. National acts at the Convention Hall
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

good version. i love the original but i love when someone does something totally differently and it's also good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

...(or, was that the original?!)

Nope, Monkees is the OG

Midwest or Jersey Shore, love those stories. A scene long gone.

Oh man, I used to practice the drums to Chicago's Greatest Hits, ALL THE TIME

Larry, this may interest you... Mike Nesmith did in fact pen mary,mary; but the butterfield blues band actually recorded it first.
- at least according to wikipedia.

I believe that.

I keep trying to come up with a respectable quip that has Trans Fats Domino as the comeback, but I keep failing. Good evening Testifiers!

Phat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:02pm Funky16Corners:

I think Fats gets left behind sometimes because he wasn't flashy, but hugely important. Same deal with the Everly Brothers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:02pm coelacanth∅:

Doug you better come up with something for that trans fat joke before next wednesday!

@Coel, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

in the book "the stars & superstars of rock"(or something like that) Fats is given the attention he deserves, at least. that author considered him essential to the foundation of rock. ( i may be paraphrasing quite a lot there)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:06pm JtotheK:

I realized I had made a corny Fats Domino related comment on a Fine Wine program. Thanks to vigorous internet research I have found. Here goes:
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:08pm JtotheK:

It was something related Yahtzee and Chubby Checker. (Dominos...Checkers...Yahtzee!) Ha ha!

haha! silly!

As long as you don't associate him with substandard pizza
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:10pm JtotheK:

i believe in that case pizza should read "pizza".

darrow fletcher 45s on jacklyn while hard to come by are GREAT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

Someone should do a comp of soul by younger teenagers in the 60s. I think Fletcher was 14 or 15 when he recorded that 45

i don't remember if pain gets deeper is before or after my young misery.

Pain was earlier by three catalog numbers
