I just finished listening to a recent Gilles Peterson show where Thom Yorke cohosted with him for most of it. That was some challenging radio. I’m exhausted after listening to it. Hopefully, all of the dances will give me a boost before I pass out for the night.

It was around the Stomp. Red Kelly put together a show for Lattimore the night before the stomp one year and then Red brought him the next two nights and Dr Ike couldn’t keep Lattimore off the stage so he did a few songs one of the nights.

a very significant other and i danced together the first time at a halloween party (mine). i was basically a skeleton and she was basically like a negative image of a skeleton. we did not know about the other's costume until she got to my house.
anyway we were the same height and basically the same build and had about the same length hair and she danced with her arms out away from her body so i imitated her and it was dubbed the skeleton dance. the only dance i know how to do.

According to Discogs, Sonny Jones worked with Eddie Bo and both of them released singles under the Scram label in '69 but there's no mention of Sonny's name being a pseudonym. Also, Sonny & Eddie sounded almost alike.
Avatar Wed. 10/16/19 11:28pm Erica:

Never mind the first part, he didn't work with Eddie. I misread that bit.
Avatar Wed. 10/16/19 11:29pm Erica:

Point being. I don't know if Sonny & Eddie were two different people are the same person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/16/19 11:29pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Eddie did a lot of pseudonymous recording during that era. As a guy who's been collecting his 45s for a long time I can almost say with certainty that's Eddie singing on Sissy Walk.

He actually renamed himself the crawfish emperor at his 90th birthday party two years ago because too many people had declared themselves the crawfish king. I went to the party and it was a ton of fun. It was at this 24/7 laundromat/Poboy place called melba’s which is located where seafood city used to be.

@Matt - I thought you meant the song was a copy of another song, as opposed to actually stolen
Avatar Wed. 10/16/19 11:42pm Erica:

It's only a rip off if it's a similar copy of, not if it has a stolen name.

Everyone, here is the song that gave Larry Grogan his (radio show) name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/16/19 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Yup!

Yeah. I know. Just exercising my math brain. It's pretty weak.

Larry, I hope you're doing the steps right now.

But seriously Larry, why did you choose that song title for your blog/radio show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/16/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

I had just gotten the reissue of the 45, fell in lobe with the song and wanted an interesting name for my web zine (that's where it started, more than 15 years ago)

some music is borrowed, some is influenced by, some is stolen. 3 different things.
