love that version of "hooray for hollywood," matt. still hungover from a new year's eve "that's even more that's entertainment!" marathon on tcm. thanks for that musical hair of the dog.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:22pm Matt F:

I love just about any dumb version of Hooray for Hollywood! Hey Mo.
  Thu. 1/2/14 2:24pm Andy S.:

Greetings from North Hollywood! Paul Gayten (heard a couple songs ago) had a long and productive career including his late-Sixties label Pzazz with releases by Louis Jordan, Lorez Alexandria, TV Slim, and more. Anybody got a copy of "We Come From The Dirt Of The Ground" by Bongo Bean (Pzazz 022)?
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

So far, this hasn't been the worst year ever.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:25pm Matt F:

Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 2:38pm glenn:

more proof that it's pretty hard to fuck up a good song.
  Thu. 1/2/14 2:43pm drr:

Mercury-era Chuck sounds weird. Not bad, but....weird.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 2:44pm glenn:

weirder than my ding-a-ling?
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:45pm Matt F:

Will My Ding-A-Ling Ever Get A Fair Shake?
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 2:45pm MattBelow:

Always wondered why they overdubbed extra drums for the single release on Clown. Pep it up a bit?
  Thu. 1/2/14 2:46pm earrie:

I don't know, @glenn, you tell us.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:46pm Uncle Michael:

Chuck ripped off my ding-a-ling.

speaking of 14 year old boys.....
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:48pm Uncle Michael:

I kinda lobbed that to you guys.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 2:48pm glenn:

matt's line was better, i have to admit.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:55pm Matt F:

Also, Dave Bartholomew's version might pre-date the Bells, but I'm not sure.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:57pm Uncle Michael:

It did. He wrote it and recorded it two years before the Bees did.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 2:57pm Doug Schulkind:

So which NOLA musician would you consider the most likely to perform a debauched version of "Three-Way Poc-a-Way"?
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Wynton Marsalis
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 2:58pm Matt F:

Harry Connick Jr.
  Thu. 1/2/14 2:59pm Andy S.:

"The Bees" -- such a great group name.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:00pm Uncle Michael:

Oakley Hall sounds like hippies. Are they hippies?

Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:04pm Parq:

I'm such a chump, I used to think it was a nonsense phrase, "Doo-ay pocky way".

  Thu. 1/2/14 3:22pm Andy S.:

Saw Tommy McClain twice: Decades ago at Gilley's in Pasadena TX; decades later at Maxwell's, backed by Yo La Tengo!
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:24pm Matt F:

He sang with Lil' Band of Gold at that show at DBA the night after the last Ponderosa Stomp too. I forget Andy, were you there?
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:27pm johnk77:

Interesting article on Charlie Rich in Oxford American magazine

#15
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:28pm Matt F:

Yeah, I read that. Really good piece. Always been a fan but never knew much about the man.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:29pm Parq:

Trying to look at the weather maps on the Web. Reminds me of that Groucho Marx line "Why a five year old could understand it! Run out and get me a five year old, I can't make head or tail of this."
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:30pm johnk77:

also liked the 2 cds included
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:30pm northguineahills:

Been lurking since Al Green. Really dug The Box Tops cover and Oakley Hall.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:31pm Doug Schulkind:

May he (Silver) live forever.
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:36pm earrie:

Weather maps? How about a nice graph by the hour : http://www.yr.no/place/United_States/New_Jersey/Jersey_City/hour_by_hour.html

Temp, precipitation, wind direction and speed, Yeah.
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:37pm John Funke:

Sonny! Er, I mean - Sunny!
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:38pm Matt F:

Funny! Uh, Funke! Hey just in time for yer theme song!
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:44pm Parq:

Otis's "Spell" -- yeah!

Earrie, finding maps to look at hasn't been my problem.
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:47pm earrie:

Oh, I didn't think it was. Simply passing along something I find weather-handy in kind.
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:50pm drr:

Young Boy Blues....this song should be way more famous than it is.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:51pm Matt F:

That broken phrasing in the intro just kills me.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:51pm northguineahills:

weather.com has become so byzantine to navigate I dig the link earrie provided.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:52pm glenn:

bobby!
  Thu. 1/2/14 3:53pm Andy S.:

"Young Boy Blues" -- great track! Written by Doc Pomus & Phil Spector. Check out Ben E. King's "It's All Over" and also "The Record (Baby I Love You)," which is sung by a guy in one of those "Record Your Voice For A Dollar" booths.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:53pm northguineahills:

leave it to the Norwegians to create simple easy to read graphs in English.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 3:54pm glenn:

all right. time to bake.
Avatar    Thu. 1/2/14 3:54pm Stanley:

Dig the Bontempi sounding organ
