"Lazin' on a Sunday Afternoon 1 Aug 21. fired up the ole record
player and played my tree dollar Somerville Grooves copy of "wack
wack" b/w "this lil light of mine"- The Young-Holt
trio. I musta been raiding the r&b section at grooves
but this 1966 45 is solid! (like Linc on Mod Squad).They were Ramsey
Lewis's rhythm section on his 1965 hit "The In Crowd"
(I prefer Sam the Sham's "I'm In (with the Out Crowd";
"uno, dos, one two Suzi Quatro!"). Who sampled has more
info: as I thought sampled by the capitols in 1966 with "Cool
Jerk" (a common album up the Brockport NY plaza in 1969; Daw's
Drug Store cutouts maybe? Sorry, I was buying Sam the Sham albums!).
And any damn fool that owned a $2.99 8-track of "back in the
USA" will note the Mc5 intro to "high
school" IS "wack wack' -cum-"Cool Jerk". Tim
"Love" Lee did a 1997 sample of "wack wack";
good boogaloo music! ("This lil light of mine' Is jazz-gospel,
both sides of Young-Holt are instrumental and I know every word!).
lastly, "Wack Wack" was covered in 1967 by the ventures
(does herr Kaiser know this?) and there's a 1968 cover by Maynard
of clan Fergusson...this was a damn fine 45! and longer lasting
than three dollar piss draft at father's in the '80s".....

Flight of the Phoenix 15 Dec 65 (pretty

Borgnine has a transistor radio like my Detroit grandmother
gave me in '65! ("Heart Full of Soul" on the stoop of
99 State Street,brockport NY!). The captain is trying to figger
out where flight took off from Beghazi; Borgnine,obssessed with
radio blasts "Arabian Tune" (1-10,then A/B/C; a minute
long each! BEFORE the ramones!). lastly with this multi-lingual

"Sunday 1 August 21 nap. discovered WCAP 980 AM in
Lowell (like 'em on facebook!).
Wikipedia says that nights and weekends they have a show "Beatles
and Before". In between the early '60s gurl group WAS "This
Boy' by the Beatles which was a UK and candadian b-side versus "I
want to hold your hand"/"saw her standing there".
"This Boy" was the November '63 b-side to "I want
to hold your hand in the UK but the flip of 'all my lovin'' in Canada.
wikiepedia says the song was inspired by Smokey Robinson and/or
Bobby Freeman b-sides though Not-yet Sir Paul marrying a Linda admitted
to the teddy Bears "to know him is to love him' played on WCMF-FM
Rochester NY summer '69. Also played was the Vogues 'you're the
one" and after my THIRD cup of coffee at Mister Crepe, Davis
Square (hipster capital of the world-Utne reader belonging to my
Beatle-hatin' cuzzin Linda garreau ("Princess of the Trailer
park" on Dino, limited vinyl!) here are some facts. Petula
Clark co-wrote "you're the one" coz her I know a place
album need a THIRTEENTH song. I remember the Vogues hit September
'65 coz, like now, I still entering fourth grade. BUT there are
four foreign language versions! Pet Clark sang in Italian, the French
version was "Un Mai Pour Un Bien" und in der Deutsch:
"Deine Liebe is wunderbar"! (so "Komm Gib Mir Die
der hande"!). Hopelessly Obscure of all (SO jacked from that
coffee...."Him like keroauc"....)…."Sina Vain"
covered by Eero in 1966 and sung in Finnish! ("what's your
favourite drug?"; hint: Dark Carnival covered "Best Friend'
by this Boston whom was on "The Winning Side"!)"......

country version of "everybody's a lyre" that had country
harmonies ala grateful Dead's American Beauty (not only do I favour

the 1942 swashbuckiling Tyrone Power (former marine 1942!) in the
Black swan; Colourised and set in the 1670s British
colony of Jamaica with pirates (a 1962 first grade passion of mine
in Jacksonville North Carolina); my mother decends from New England
Puritans but dad's Knotts ancestor was a convicted jewel thief transported
to Virginia colony though by his 1650s death he had gone from convict
to cavalier). A very swashbuckling, rope swinging,deck-fightng movie
with everybody dressed like Adam Ant. After reading the
Great santini at Mister Crepe, in hipster Davis Sqaure
I noted (trifecta!): a rehab on the movie house interior;:
"which witch are you? calling all witches!
Boston witch census" (stand up and be counted! you wont be
hung no mo'! The Puritans have evolved into bland Congregationaists
like my ninety year old mother ("The Blodgetts were probably
the ones supplying the wood" (for burning; Gizstorical inaccuracy
ma!) and lastly: TWO big ass signs saying "Stop Stealing My
Thoughts"....I'll let Miss Lyn, NOT in witch census (YET!)
discourse on that 'un".....
