Grazie!

Soundin' Good!

Hey thanks Tom!

Battle of the Bands! Vote Now!
  Thu. 5/31/12 1:45pm Tom:

My vote goes to the Flamin' Groovies!!
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 1:46pm Fiveash:

It's a tough call Tom, but I think I agree.
  Thu. 5/31/12 1:48pm jh.:

The Groovies, have it.
  Thu. 5/31/12 1:59pm Tom:

Second Cousin by the Groovies nails it down, rock 'n' roll in all its glory!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:01pm Scott C.:

Here's how great The Groovies are: This is a legitimate, honest-to-Nanker horse race between these two bands! They're both in my personal Hall Of Fame, first class picks. For the purposes of your battle though, I go Groovies!
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:01pm Fiveash:

Funny you should mention it, Tom...
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:02pm Fiveash:

Hey Scott!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:06pm Scott C.:

Hey, Matt! Ahhh, "Off The Hook"! Rethinking my vote!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:11pm Tom:

If I could go back in time to 1972 and had the choice of either a Groovies or Stones show, I'd pick the Groovies, 100% American rock and roll!
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:13pm Fiveash:

But you could be missing the best Stones show ever! (Or a total trainwreck).
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:13pm Greg G.:

I'm guilty of not listening to either one of these bands very frequently, but this show's making me consider temporarily stepping away from the country records a little more frequently! Good stuff, Matt.
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:16pm Fiveash:

Hi Greg! Thanks. I know, so much music and so little time...
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:17pm Matt from Springfield:

"Shake Some Action"--this is great, never heard of this one before!
Maybe it's the demo, but that's some good jangly 60s guitar.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:20pm Tom:

Walkin' the Dog by the Groovies is one of their best tracks!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:20pm Tom:

Walkin' the Dog by the Groovies is one of their best tracks!
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:23pm Fiveash:

Agreed, Tom. The Stones do a good one too, as do the Sonics. I don't know if there are any bad versions. Even Aerosmith's is OK!
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:24pm Fiveash:

Hi MFS.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:25pm Scott C.:

Have the Flamin' Groovies ever gone the C&W way, and I'm just not thinking of it?
Walkin The Dog is so fantastic it's hard to screw it up, much like Tallahassie Lassie!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Fiveash!
Are both "Let It Rock" and "Sweet Little Rock & Roller" Berry covers, or just in the style of?
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:26pm Fiveash:

Yup, both by the maestro.
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 2:27pm Fiveash:

Scott- a little bit. Childhood's End from Flamingo being a prime example.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

At least live, the Groovies are kickin' the Stones asses on "Jumpin' Jack Flash"!!
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Still more RIPs...glad you mentioned him.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:43pm Matt from Springfield:

And that sounds like an interesting subject to delve into--the "under/over"-ratedness of Exile on Main Street. It's a weird feeling, especially when music journalists write about it or the sessions, you get the feeling the double LP receives too much praise. Yet there are tracks like "Let It Loose" and "Torn and Frayed" that you wonder why they don't get more coverage.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:52pm jh.:

Welling up, listening to Doc. Lovely choice.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:54pm Matt from Springfield:

A capella Doc spiritual, bravo.
  Thu. 5/31/12 2:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Fiveash!
  Thu. 5/31/12 3:16pm Fiveash:

Thanks all! See youse next week.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:43pm Joe Non Papa:

Listening in archive later on Thursday. As much as I love the Groovies, I will go with the Stones. For those of us of a certain age, the Stones, and many others of the British Invasion, had actually been our first exposure to some of the great R&B sounds of our own country. The originals just weren't played on commercial radio. As a kid, I wondered if some of the authors of these great songs - like E McDaniels, M Morganfield, A Alexander - might have been from Liverpool. No disrepect to the Groovies, but the Stones were setting us straight years before.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:59pm Joe Non Papa:

PS: Your first song is a take-off on a famous old Cuban rhumba, "Mani" (aka "El Manicero"). Ricky Ricardo even sang a version of it on a certain old sitcom. Shrimp and Gumbo has a lot of Perez Prado.
  Fri. 6/1/12 3:03am Fiveash:

JNP, I didn't know that about the Sabu song. Thanks for the info. Point taken about the Stones, and the Groovies were probably some of those kids you speak of who learned Chuck, Bo, etc. from the Stones. Luckily we don't actually have to choose one or the other. Shrimp Gumbo, Crab Gumbo, Mambo!
  Fri. 6/1/12 5:43am Richard D:

Smokin' set Mr Fiveash! Groovies are kickin' it.
