  1. The Sons of Champlin Freedom 1982-A Get High
  2. Don't Ya Just Know It? by Huey "Piano" Smith OK DG, I left out Pink Floyd. In an early interview (1970), Roger Waters says they started "as a completely blues and Bo Diddley-oriented rock 'n' roll band" Syd Barrett was a fan of Bo Diddley and the song Double-O Bo was recorded on the band's first demo tape. While recognizing the roots, Dave Gilmour said that, at a certain point, it came to a choice of their new innovative style or "going back to Bo Diddley covers". Speaking of covers, there is a rare mp3 of Roger Waters performing Bo Diddley's I Can Tell on his Radio KAOS Tour
  3. Tin Man by America Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead by The Fifth Estate (1967) Would it be cheating to use this soundtrack from the movie adaptation of the Broadway show "The Wiz" (1978), an urbanized update of the Wizard of Oz story, with Diana Ross as Dorothy and Wacko Jacko as The Scarecrow. Anybody remember the song Ease On Down The Road ?
  4. Is That All There Is? (<) sung by Peggy Lee; written by Lieber & Stoller.
  5. DG90125, Ask Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, and The Doors, etc. etc. Get The Story of Bo Diddley and scroll down a list like the day is long of Bo Diddley Songs Covered by Other Artists (including more than 170 cover versions of Who Do You Love?)
  6. The above are prima facie misdemeanor violations noted by the "Credit Where Credit Is Due" Police. We recommend release of the perpetrators on their own recognizance (provided they "get a haircut & get a real job"). George Thorogood does a bang-up job of this song, but he would never claim to be "The Originator".
  7. Who's Making Love [To Your Old Lady (While You Were Out {Making Love})]? by Johnny Taylor Who's That Lady? by The Isley Brothers
  8. There are whole lots by John Mayall. Room To Move is one favorite. And the classic Scratch My Back by Slim Harpo Smokestack Lightning by The Yardbirds I'm A Loser by The Beatles
  9. I wanted to take another look at this mystery, but there seems to be even less information around now than there was a couple of months ago. Do I have a false memory of the dog on the cover? Is this just the power of suggestion? Can anybody confirm that the dog was once there? Anybody have a copy with dog? I don't know where I found the "EMI cover-up" quote. I think it came from the Number 9 Books site, but that link doesn't work anymore. Maybe someone in Britain has better insight and more information about what gives.
  10. I haven't figured out what this Dutch record store is all about, but this web page (>) Demonfuzz singles bar is an absolute mother lode of funk titles and artists.
  11. Hey! I thought this was a family site, for Chrissakes! Scroll down to the Archives at Kiss Your Face (<), where Michael Rutherford - The NiteOwl has implanted cosmetic KISSes on everyone from The Monkees to The Munsters, Madonna to Jimmy Durante.
  12. More funky Stevie Wonder: You Haven't Done Nothin' Boogie On Reggae Woman Master Blaster also recommended: Them Changes by Buddy Miles Express
  13. The Messiah Will Come Again by Roy Buchanan Albert King's "Live Wire/Blues Power" album Freddie King Buddy Guy
  14. I neglected to mention that, like nearly all the music shows at this County Fair, the AC/DShe performance was free. I doubt one their performances will ever cost more than a small cover charge. To me this "tribute" band was just goofy good and slightly cheesy fun. The icing on the cake was that these girls put on a fantastic show. A few years back I saw a number of Elvis Impersonators in part of an all-day marathon (likewise, free). Of course, each had some different gimmick or "take" on the King. Since I wasn't taking this too seriously, it was great entertainment to judge the nuances
  15. Just for starters: Tales Of Brave Ulysses by Cream Atlantis by Donovan (and the lyrics to Those Were The Days by Cream also makes reference to Atlantis)
  16. Just heard a song called The Ballad Of The Kingsmen by an artist named Todd Snider. It is both funny ha-ha and funny peculiar. It looks like he's categorized as a "country" singer but I'd like to find more of his work. It's definitely not run-of-the-mill stuff. ( Last week I heard Alcohol and Pills which is about musicians we lost to drugs - not funny ha-ha at all, nor intended to be.)
  17. Sorry to break into these scintllating tales of the "Show Me" state Today, I got a taste of the latest Dave Alvin CD ("Ashgrove"), and, folks, it was tasty. I was also reminded of the still great and still underrated Tommy Castro Band . I first "discovered' Tommy Castro on TV as the house band for the Saturday late-night "Comedy Showcase" . His latest CD is "Gratitude", a tribute to Tommy's own favorite Blues artists.
  18. Now here's a Blues event I would love to have seen and heard. (The Howling Wolf vs. Muddy Waters) from sometime in the early 1960s I think.
  19. Fire Down Below by Bob Seger. I only like some Bob Seger. I think this song is possibly his best. It sounds like it's all done, and then (1-2-3-) you get a burnin' bonus.
  20. Wow! Take a look at the talent roster for the 32nd Annual San Francisco Blues Festival. "Some that you recognize, some that you've not even heard of". And check out Blues Festivals Dot Com, a searchable database for upcoming Blues events nation/worldwide.
  21. You've listed Koko Taylor, one of my favorites, and Big Bad Etta, of course. Bonnie Raitt re-introduced the classic Blues singer/writer Sippie Wallace to a wider audience a few years before Sippie died in 1986. Angela Strehli and Susan Tedeschi are a couple of newer blues/rock standouts. And I've always loved Lydia Pense & Cold Blood. It's ambiguous.
  22. My first encounter with the blues (around 1966) was having friends turn me on to "The Paul Butterfield Blues Band" album. I have the CD today, and happened to be listening to it when I read your post. It's still Blues With A Feeling and Screamin'. I've got a bargain CD called "Muddy & The Wolf" which I think is pieced together from the "Fathers And Sons" album with Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Mike Bloomfield, Butterfield and "Duck" Dunn -and - Howlin' Wolf's "London Sessions" with Clapton, Stevie Winwood, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. I've always dug Muddy's Long Distance Call and
  23. bluesboy, I was just needling you. I've been having fun championing the cause of Bo Diddley as "The Originator" (see the Picture Wars thread, for instance) and joking around with these Credit.. Police citations on these boards. It was also an opportunity to bump this interesting thread. I hope I haven't ruined my shot at an internship. A great Thorogood version of Who Do You Love? really got my attention on the radio last week. Ronnie Hawkins does a cover in The Last Waltz movie with The Band. And one whole side of Quicksilver's "Happy Trails" album (1969) is a spaced-out jam b
