Ginny Arnell  Dumbhead   Favoriting Meet Ginny Arnell  LP  "S&M Girl Singers: Ginny Arnell was a little more like Lesley Gore, but what an angle on the world; her most famous line is "I'm a Dumbhead, Dumbhead, Stupid Little Girl ... Won't somebody beat my head against the wall?" - Jello

Ginny Arnell  I Wish I Had a Dress To Wear   Favoriting Meet Ginny Arnell  LP  "Another low-self esteem "classic" is "I Wish I Knew What Dress to Wear" -- even though she knows nobody will dance with her at the prom." - Jello

Dion McGregor  Val   Favoriting The Dream World Of Dion McGregor (He Talks In His Sleep)  LP  "He was a talent agent from the '50's who had a habit of talking in his sleep.

Favoriting
0:19:05 (Pop-up)
Glenn Meadmore  Lovin' In My Oven   Favoriting Chicken and Biscuits  MP3  "Glenn Meadmore's music is more cow-punk now, but check out his first LP, Chicken and Biscuits. It mixes hard-craking drum machine and loud violins. In a deliberately obnoxious voice that Peter Ivers would be proud of, he sings songs like "Lovin' In My Oven"... Jello 
Favoriting
0:23:07 (Pop-up)

Jack Turner  Nightmare   Favoriting 45 Single  45  Jack Turner: "Nightmare." "Aside from having the most psychedelic-sounding steel guitar of the '50's, it also has surreal Dali-esque Hitchcock dream vision lyrics - The Cramps should cover this one." - Jello 
Favoriting
0:32:01 (Pop-up)
Lofty's Zzebra    Original Afro-Fusion Music  LP  Black Psychedelia: "The cover of Lofty's Zzebra: Original Afro-Fusion Music shows Lofty wearing striped platform boots up to his knees, a chapaleta over one arm and loud polyester vest and marching pants, standing amidst some trees gesturing fairly angrily at the Gods. Musically, the opening track is bluegrass!" - Jello 
Favoriting
0:34:07 (Pop-up)
Damn Sam the Miracle Man and the Soul Congregation  Give Me Another Joint   Favoriting Damn Sam the Miracle Man and the Soul Congregation  MP3  "...Another experimental black record out of Detroit is this one by Damn Sam the Miracle Man (a former nursing-home choir director from Selma, Alabama) and the Soul Congregation.

Favoriting
0:40:33 (Pop-up)
Fred Kuehn & Light  Great Lord Lucifer   Favoriting Song of Gods Gone Mad  LP  Satanic Folk Music: "Fred Kuehn and Light recorded Song of Gods Gone Mad. You've heard of satanic heavy-metal, but how about this genre?" - Jello

0:44:38 (Pop-up)
The New Life, Mike Curb  Psychedelic Rape   Favoriting Sings The Sidehackers  LP  Pseudo-Psychedelic: "New Life Sings the Side-hackers (Ameret) blends rock, psychedelic plus a full orchestra. They had the nerve to title an eerie, long Hitchcock scare piece "Psychedelic Rape." - Jello 
Favoriting
0:47:54 (Pop-up)
Kings Road  Whipping Post   Favoriting Watkins Glen  LP  "...After Woodstock, a Crown-type label releashed a fake Woodstock album, Watkins Glen, which covered songs like "Whipping Post" by the Allman Bros, "Up on Cripple Creek," and other pseudo-Nuggets complete with rock festival crowd noise dubbed in." - Jello

Favoriting
0:55:00 (Pop-up)
Toby Rean & The Common People  Outa Space   Favoriting Outa Space  LP  "Another all-time wonderful Crown atrocity is Outa Space! by Toby Rean & The Common People. The cover art is psychedelic but the record has nothing to do with psych or space." - Jello 
Favoriting
0:58:47 (Pop-up)
Toby Rean & The Common People  Request For Discharge   Favoriting Outa Space  LP  "After butchering a Billy Preston hit (Outa Space), the band plays all country-western, ending with a hilarious weeper about a Vietnam Vet who returns home just as the baby he's never seen croaks from crib death!" - Jello 
Favoriting
1:02:03 (Pop-up)
Ricky Vale & His Surfers  Ghost Surfin' Parts 1 & 2   Favoriting Everybody's Surfin'  LP  "Strand Records, who put out a lot of ethnic material, released Ricky Vale & His Surfers. The cover, which shows three prepubescent kids, claims this is the band, but the LP sounds like space-psyche-jazz jams on surf tunes. It only has three songs per side, but each is double the length of most rock'n'roll instrumentals. Very ethereal and well done." - Jello 
Favoriting
1:08:11 (Pop-up)
The Psychedelic Seeds  Psychotic Reaction   Favoriting The Electric Piano Playground  LP  "Bell Records: The Electric Piano Playground by The Psychedelic Seeds may have been intended for children: it's Ferrante and Teicher piano experiments put through various effects. " - Jello

Hall & Reasons  Orbiting   Favoriting Spaceship  LP  Outer Space: "Spaceship by Hall & Reasons, two dorky-looking guys in polyester '70's shirts, is a NASA tribute." - Jello 
Favoriting
1:20:43 (Pop-up)
Hall and Reasons  Spaceship   Favoriting Spaceship  LP  "The music is fairly decent heavy-psych, but the packaging must be seen to be believed." - Jello 
Favoriting

Bull Durham  Happy SAC Warrior   Favoriting Songs of the Strategic Air Command  LP  Military: "Bull Durham's Songs of the Strategic Air Command includes "Happy SAC Warrior," "Hang Down Your Boom, Ross Cooley," "Home on the Pad," and many more." - Jello

1:54:13 (Pop-up)
Bobby Brown  Tiny Wind Of Shanol   Favoriting Enlightening Beam of Axonda    "...In Southern California in the late '70s, Bobby Brown, a blonde guy who build all his own instruments, put out at least three albums which revived the '50's exotica feeling." - Jello

The Allman Bros. must have heard a lot of covers of Whipping Post...

This reminds me of all those fake covers on songs on aerobic records

Can't say I have any experience in that genre but really, how hard would it be to fake a disco-beat song?

Speaking of things that don't quite fit, I got a box that barely fit in my mailbox today. Inside was a single magazine issue (book sized), with a lot of packing paper. They could have fit a dozen in there (it usually comes in a cardboard envelope)

@BC: Does the back cover pic (for Orbiting) show you actually holding a copy of that record?
Avatar 3:28pm
BC Sterrett:

Fred, sometimes I wonder if people grab the only free box available when they mail stuff.

Yes, it does Fred. I couldn't find the back cover on discogs.

I got a bunch of swag in a Mr. Coffee box once. Only the small address label and the customs declaration to mar it. Nice.

I didn't know that Fred! This is one of the few records from this section that I don't have. I can imagine lots of samples taken from this.

The break from Apache was used by Kool Herc and others to give an extended rhythmic part for early B-boys (with two copies of the record)

I always loved that line (about the Iron Butterfly version) on the Simpsons when bart changes the sheet music at church …. "Hey marge... remember when we used to make out to this hymn"
Avatar 3:49pm
BC Sterrett:

I remember that episode!
Avatar 3:50pm
BC Sterrett:

I like the story about how this song was really called "In The Garden of Eden" but the guy who wrote it was drunk while singing the riff and the band thought it sounded like the title it is today. Did I get that story right?
