Beware of manipulators. You come first. Now where are my maracas?

Choir! Choir! Choir!

Are you the type of person who loves singing along to music whether you know the lyrics or not? Then you will love Choir! Choir! Choir! I was taken to their show at TCAN without knowing about them or what was about to happen. I loved it. The theme was George Harrison tunes. There's something magical about a bunch of people singing together. Check them out with David Byrne, Patti Smith and Rick Astley.

Where are you?

There you are. Put that hamburger down and join me in a little shake.
If you love 1960s soul music, you'll dig Funky 16 Corners radio.

Zephyr winds which blow on high...

...lift me now so I can fly. On Saturday mornings, I didn't go outside until after The Shazam/Isis Hour. Words of wisdom from Isis.

It's a Beautiful Morning

During a recent visit to Oahu, my host surprised me with a show featuring Felix and Gene from The Rascals. They wrote so many groovin' tunes and played and performed with so much energy.
Check out this guy talking about Felix and the Hammond.

Rock'n Mania Records

During my teens, I bought most of my albums from a used record store two towns away. Buying an album for only one song sucked (Blue Oyster Cult), so I would scoop up many of the "best of" albums because all the songs were good. I was often hearing really good music for the first time – like Sam & Dave. What a gas to see video like this.

This is my used Sam & Dave "best of" album. Click on it to make big.
