    Carole King

    Wilfrid where did you hear it.

    Carole King

    Hee. I didn't know him or nothin', he was just a slightly older guy at the swap meet who dressed kind of bougie and knew a TON about EVERYTHING. He went through this big stack of 45s and had something really interesting and smart and GREAT to say about every single one. Another one I had that particular night was "ABC" by the Jackson 5, and he goes, "What a great song. The Jackson 5! Now WHY don't I have their Greatest Hits?!" and I was like, Dude, you must be some kind of GENIUS!!!

    No wai! In all these years I have never heard nor seen it from a second source. (Just read the Wiki entry for the song with the no-citation claim about this Ingram person, here.) My informant was Harold Bronson of Rhino Records, which may have still been only a store at that point although the label must have been coming right along. At the Sunday midnight Columbia Records' parking lot record swap meet, while he was assessing my scores, one of which was a 45 of "The Loco-Motion."

    No I do not although Yahoo suggests a Dan Ingram was an important DJ. Izzat the guy?

    But see you can hear the Carole in there!

    Carole King

    Years ago, a guy who was sort of credible on the subject told me that it was Carole herself singing on "The Loco-Motion" and not Little Eva, alleged Goffin/King babysitter. Since then, so since like 1978, I've heard it that way. I've also always esp. liked "Pleasant Valley Sunday," and the one-two punch, so to speak, of the Cookies' "Chains" and the Crystals' "He Hit Me (and it Felt Like a Kiss)" for their sneaky, good-natured subversiveness.
  7. Right on! Cream Pan is absolutely world-class. What have you tried? Not an espresso drink (though they do make them), but CP's regular coffee is very good. No need to put oneself through Kean, truly.

    Astro Boy

    Eschew all Astro Boy desecrations. Because as all the best people know there is only the One, and it had the theme song, which I also know by heart and NOT just because I have the 45 bought from the Helms Bakery truck driver but because it is ASTRO BOY.

    Levi Stubbs

    That was great! Screaming Belgian teeny buds. Seems Little Sir Mick mighta had a passing familiarity with Levi's beautiful dancing as well as James Brown's.

    God, what a voice. That live performance Lex provided is incredible. The handclaps! There just ain't too many people who you could put a microphone in their hand and they'd be able to sound like that.
  11. I love the Furminator too!!! I got mine from Amazon at like $3 more or something than the link that Leslie provided... SO worth it. But oh my goodness that first and second go-round BALES of loose fur are produced, even from deceptively sleek and short-haired supermodel Sultana, who is also, not coincidentally, the biggest hairball-upchucker of the bunch. WHICH leads one to look for something like the Furminator, etc. Just Furminated all 4, in fact, about the 4th or 5th week in a row. Much smaller amount of fur, but I still do it outside on my bedroom balcony. Plus the table is wrought-iron mesh and they like to hang on.

    Mamma Mia

    I like the idea of comparing Brian Wilson's work to Abba.

    Mamma Mia

    Oh. Well then. Color me wrong a third way. I wasn't imagining it was about sales #s.

    Why is Seth gobsmacked over Wilfrid's advocation of Brian Wilson? I mean I am too, but I wonder if it's for the same reason. Why has Boney M been invoked? I like Rasputin a lot, esp. lyrically as Behemoth correctly points out. Got the 12-inch single, hypnotic. How many times did I see Abba on the Don Kirschner Rock Concert? 8000, perhaps? And each time, perfection. They always seemed to have some kind of force field around them, Early Video Technology stuff, but also just due to their unstoppable self-confidence.
  15. I LOVE "Rock 'n Roll Hootchie Koo"! I love love love when guitar sounds like lightening bolts hurled from Olympus by Zeus, which Rick Derringer's does on that song. Like Chris Spedding's "Hurt by Love," also love, also lightening bolts, also anthemic. Another song I love, "Coal Miner's Daughter," is an anthemic anthem. Righteous.
