Rather a bitter lyric, this

ah, well i had the title wrong too. no "anymore" (at least not on Dawn Penn's version)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm
doctorjazz:

And of course, these guys knew "Shake"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm
coelacanth∅:

right doc the Allman's version is like part "trouble no more", part "you don't love me"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm
coelacanth∅:

(their trouble no more that is)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm

Definitely: "Shake." Cued up this Hank Crawford with seconds to spare. (Speaking of "Shake.")

I must share this little bit of surreal comedy: This afternoon driving through the deserted streets of Pasadena, there was this very earnest commentator on KCRW advising folks who don't know, how to score and consume weed in all it's permutations. For coping purposes, of course.

I even still like "Take Five."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm

Not that easy or affordable, LD, could only find 1 copy inn eBay of the single for $50. Maybe that's inexpensive these days.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:04pm

Maybe that's why people are rushing out to stockpile toilet paper, they're really high.

Take Five will always be groovy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm

Of the Tony Owens? I've seen $10 copies on eBay quite recently. $50 is waaay too much.

The "Take 5" meter/sound got adopted in all sortsa interesting ways in the early and mid-'60s. Thinking of France Gall's "Pense a Moi"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm
Little Danny:

Yeah, zzz, definitely not that much. Mostly in the context of big-budget stuff like the Beach Boys and some surf-era soundtracks
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:24pm
Franco Twinkie:

In 1972 I saw the Dragon brothers, Daryl and Dennis providing an improvised(I think) sound track to a surfing movie at the Santa Monica Civic. They were very good in a Pink Floyd kind of way. Of course they both went onto their own respective careers. But back then, they really had it together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm
Matt from New Orleans:

I recognized this music Danny. It’s from a fairly terrible Mondo style look at satanic rituals called Witchcraft ’70 in the US.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm
Little Danny:

Haha, I should have known you knew that movie, Matt. I almost called you out on the air.

There was a third brother right? It was all three in The Dragons?

The Dragons were connected to the surf movie The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun, I believe. Matt from NOLA could prolly confirm
Avatar 11:42pm
Kris Holmes:

I believe two of the brothers did that soundtrack
Avatar 11:43pm
Kris Holmes:

I want to say The Dragons stuff was the only stuff all three of them did together?
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:45pm
Franco Twinkie:

On that night they were simply called Dragon. One thing I do remember, it was really cold and Dennis was out front playing the drums in a tank top!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm
Little Danny:

Could very well be, Kris, I just don't know. I've checked out that soundtrack online before, but I don't know much about them as recording artists

Yeah I’m going off vague recollections from when I was vaguely interested one time years ago lol
