Options Little Records with The Big G: Playlist from May 23, 2020 Options

The Big G's avatar View The Big G's profile Options

“Little Records” is a two hour radio show hosted by “The Big G” focusing on the little Records, both literal and figurative. 45’s of high quality but lowly chart stature. Mostly we’ll be covering Blues, Jazz, R&B, Country and Rock & Roll, but the show is freeform so anything that’s appeared on a 45RPM record, starting with RCA’s introduction of the format in 1949 is fair game.

I don’t happen to have a television but I do wonder what might be happening in the epic early 70’s monster movie Gargoyles right about now.

That's not the Lulu who sang To Sir With Love, is it?
Avatar 8:14pm The Big G:

Different Lulu, but just as iconic!

I demand to know why The Rivingtons aren’t on Mt. Rushmore. I’ll wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Gaylord Fields:

Big G: His 1965 remake of Sixteen Tons is on that short list of artists successfully remaking their hit record.
Avatar 8:31pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@The Big G: Are you talking about Tennessee Ernie Ford or Layton Redell Zbornik Jr.?
Avatar 8:33pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Gaylord: We are all waiting for you to redo "Squat With Me" so we can add another to that list.
  8:33pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

Y'know I don't remember GARGOYLES being this good--and I loved it when I was 7. Rich, compelling stuff--esp. the soundtrack.
Avatar 8:35pm Creature Boy:

I "favorited" this D Cobras song about three notes in

i forgot about the electronic squeebs on there, so good
Avatar 8:58pm The Big G:

Yeah Dave, what instrument is that I wonder
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gaylord Fields:

I'll give "Gargoyles" this on the realism front: The title monsters certainly run as if they're made of stone.
Avatar 9:01pm The Big G:

Gaylord: The slo-mo effect. Ever present in the TAv series Incredible hulk
Avatar 9:02pm The Big G:

The early seventies special effects pallet was limited
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Gaylord Fields:

I come here for the Bobby Hebb b-sides!
Avatar 9:05pm The Big G:

We got em!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Gaylord Fields:

@The Big G: I sure hope there was a slo-mo echoing roar to accompany the scene.
Avatar 9:06pm The Big G:

Grunts. But they definitely droned!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Gaylord Fields:

I'll take droney grunts.

Avatar 9:33pm Creature Boy:

I tHinK i have this Stafford 45 & i think i paid too much for a scratchy copy
Avatar 9:34pm The Big G:

I love it. So good
Avatar 9:35pm Creature Boy:

Was playing an also overpriced scratchy Terry Stafford LP recently . good stuff though
Avatar 9:36pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Creature Boy: Scratchy copies of that 45 start at 39 cents on Discogs currently.
Avatar 9:36pm The Big G:

This Jackie/Count Basie single slays me!
