I don’t know how many aging PBS viewers are watching TV at 2:30 AM, but this is from a fundraiser that ran last night. The Lennon Sisters wore a lot of hair pieces in the Sixties, but never any as big as this one on Dusty!
For 50-cents each, I recently bought the four LP’s that Herb Alpert put out between 1965 and ’66. As Denro says, “There is no doubt that those albums sold millions and millions of copies in the 60’s….every thrift store across the USA has the proof!”
According to the dates engraved on the inner grooves, the copies I came upon aren’t first generation, but they are original pressings from those years. Recorded by Larry Levine at Gold Star studios in L.A., the sound quality is uniformly superb. I have listened to this track from “S.R.O” a half dozen times, and I imagine the musicians of the legendary Wrecking Crew must have been smiling when they heard the playback.
Note: As far as I know, only some of Alpert’s touring band, assembled after the fourth album, recorded with him in the studio.
My friend, the sensational Lia Pamina, has a new music video! I love the “Pet Sounds” sound of this song. You can read an interview with the Spanish beauty, in English, at this link.
Messer Chups are calling you from their secret red phone!
And this is a complete Messers Chup show from two years ago. Zombierella, formerly called simply Zombie Girl, is on bass guitar. Where else are you going to hear the Munsters theme live in concert?
When did “post-apocalyptic” become a genre? “Six String Samurai” is by far the wackiest post-nuclear holocaust movie. No zombies, but lots of guitar playing… and sword playing!
Giles Martin has done an outstanding job with engineering the recent re-issues of the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl, and Sgt. Pepper. Capitol Records had technical problems when recording of the first half of the 1964 show at the Hollywood Bowl, which was unforgivable, considering the venue is within walking distance of the Capitol tower. They did a better job a year later. Here is the original, unedited audio of the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in ’65, so you can hear exactly what the source material was that Giles had to work with.
