I have jammed this Darlene Love at huge volume so many times. I suggest y'all do the same.

Coel my dude, hello

this is high volume even at low volume

Exactly!

Matt from New Orleans:

I have fond childhood memories of seeing Darlene in Leader of the Pack after my mom and I were unable to see Yul Brenner in The King and I when hey got sick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm
Little Danny:

Some of these tracks have actual mass to them coming out of my speakers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm
Matt from New Orleans:

We went back and saw Leader of the Pack a second time because Darlene was so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm
Little Danny:

Ah man, that's an awesome story/memory. She's a goddess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm
Matt from New Orleans:

It made me fall in love with the music of Ellie Greenwich and realize who she was at a young age. Then I started reading about the Brill building and learning stories of all these oldies I’d hear on the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm
Little Danny:

It's interesting. I made a deep mental/emotional connection with the Phil Spector groups like the Crystals and Ronnettes at an early age. I'd put some of Ellie's work in that same category, even if she was on a different coast
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm
Matt from New Orleans:

I get that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm
Little Danny:

Those deep melodic hooks, y'know, and huge '60s productions
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm
Matt from New Orleans:

Annie Golden was also prominently in the production. She’s more recently known as the mute Norma on Orange is the New Black.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm
Little Danny:

Related to Lottie?

Flash Strap:

this Wow is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm
Little Danny:

I wish I had more records that sound like it. Cavernous sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm
Matt from New Orleans:

Not that I’m aware. I don’t think Annie is Jewish while Lotti is. Annie was also the lead singer of the NY punk band The Shirts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm
Little Danny:

This booming Dave Hassinger production goes out to Franco

Aw, I'll tell him, he's at practice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm

Franco should be here, not at practice. You tell him I said that.

Tyneresque piano, fine band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm
Little Danny:

Primo early-ish Hubbard. This album deserves to be more widely known. Huge, propulsive Eddie Khan bassline.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm

Ronnie Mathews is fantastic. I have his first album. Talk about underrated.

Pretty good here. I just got back from seeing live entertainment, which usually only happens once or twice a year.

WR:

Reading about Gene Rains led me to find out that the king pins of "exotica" (Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman) had a scene at the Shell Bar at the Hawaiian Village Hotel in Waikiki, Hawaii, compéred by Alfred Apaka. Like the CBGB for faux ethno exotica...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm
Little Danny:

Oh for that time machine, WR

CC:

Freddie Hubbard all week anytime all the time..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm
Little Danny:

Darn tootin', CC
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:19pm
WR:

I would take that time machine ride, even expecting the hordes of stateside tourists they were entertaining.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:23pm
WR:

Lazy Lester! He had a formula but it works so well.
  11:29pm
CC:

There are some very obscure Jazz Messenger cuts out there that would surprise any Jazz aficionado... I promise!!!
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:29pm
WR:

@Matt, if you're still out there, so at the end of his life Brenner did revival of King & I?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm
Little Danny:

@CC: for sure! Blakey's groups recorded on a number of tiny and/or forgotten labels in that time, I love it
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:33pm
WR:

And super cool that you saw Leader of the Pack twice! The original cast recording is now on my wish list.
  11:34pm
CC:

Oh yeah!!!
  11:36pm
CC:

Well Danny my deceased brother-in-law played sax with them boys and he also played with the Sandy East Four who that girl reminded me of!!!...(:

Little Danny:

Oh man that's awesome

Little Danny:

Early recorded guitar feedback on this Smiley Lewis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm
Little Danny:

Man this track just destroys me
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:41pm
WR:

I must have missed something, Blakey's band was backing one of the vocalists?
  11:41pm
CC:

Lee Konitz paved the way!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm
Little Danny:

WR: nope, two different tracks/artists: 1) Blakey and 2) Lori Lea. I think.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:44pm
WR:

Have to listen to the Smiley Lewis track again. Too much to absorb in one listening. Love his music so much but don't remember that tune.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:45pm
WR:

Didn't see Blakey on the track list, maybe the tune in back on your last mic break?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm
Little Danny:

Yeah, I have a couple of his 45s but my knowledge of Smiley Lewis's catalog is very patchy. I need to educate myself.
  11:46pm
CC:

Davis kind of faltered and Freddie took over!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm
Little Danny:

Haha, I think I'm causing some of the confusion. No Blakey was actually played this evening. His name just came up in the chat.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:49pm
WR:

OKAY, just trying to keep up while I am putting off doing the dishes and drinking another beer digging the tunes you playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm
Little Danny:

You're doin' things in right order, WR. From my perspective at least.
  11:50pm
CC:

my fault I think my mind was wandering/wondering...
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:52pm
WR:

Oh I see CC, you were riffing off the Hubbard track. Cool.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:52pm
Franco Twinkie:

Danny! I just got home and I'm totally wrecked. But we got some great stuff recorded tonight. The Invictas?
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:54pm
WR:

Franco. Dude the whole show was built around you, why didn't you let us know you had practice tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm
Little Danny:

Hi Franco! I was mad at you for missing a Dave Hassinger production but I love you again.
  11:55pm
CC:

Yeah WR...Ronnie and Freddie and Miles came to mind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm
Little Danny:

I require 100% attendance. High maintenance listening.
  11:56pm
CC:

Not to mention Sandy again...
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:56pm
Franco Twinkie:

I am torn with my loyalties Danny. I LOVE your show, but I've got my boys to think about.
