Ok, here it finally is, that strange track from "An Evening With Wild Man Fischer" that we somehow managed to digitally fuck-up and we still don´t know what really happened. Anyway, sorry for the long wait. We´ve been kinda of busy here at the office spinning 78s and being lazy. As a mild compensation for your long suffering we´ve added on a few previously unreleased gems from Rhino Handmade´s long gone collection The Fischer King (1999). The first two tracks was recorded in September 1977, live at the Dodger Stadium. It´s basically Larry wandering around, singing and chatting with the crowd (these two are around ten minutes each). The third is a fine duet with Rosemary Clooney, recorded on the 15th of march in 1986. As Larry recalls it: Actually, I used to listen to it a lot because, you know, I liked Rosemary singing. I used to call her. She used to always be nice to me. I used to call her on Christmas and she would sing “White Christmas” to me. She was in the movie “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby. You didn´t know that, did you?

The entry for the complete download of "An Evening With Wild Man Fischer" has been updated, and the corrupt track has been replaced. All links have been updated.


01 A Few Minutes With Larry At Dodger Stadium [includes performances of "Merry Go Round"/"I'm Selling Peanuts For The Dodgers" and "Monkeys Versus Donkeys"]
02 A Few More Minutes With Larry At Dodger Stadium [includes performances of "Jimmy Durante"/"Merry Go Round"/"My Name Is Larry"/"Oh Tina Tina My Little Schlemina"/"Answer Me Lord Above"/"Love Me Tender"/"The Rocket Rock"/"I'm Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover"/"Go To Rhino Records" and "I'm A Truck"]
03 It´s A Hard Business (duet with Rosemary Clooney)
04 Bye!

Yes, Volume 2 is here. PCL posted about SUNKA GÅ GÅ! Vol. 1 here.
Magnus has some shocking facts this time: "... Track one is a Norwegian release but girl sound Swedish, Mona was doing a porno movie next door to a recording studio, and was somehow persuaded to make a record. Maybe because she was tone deaf. "
I don't know what is most shocking: the fact that she was filming a porno flick or the fact that she was tone deaf. Hm...

Francine Lainé 45rpm

"Is there a better choice to start a new "vinyl rip" blog than to post a small erotic artifact from the french seventies ? It seems that Francine Laine (or "Lainé", can't figure if the little mark on the last "e" of her name is an accent or not...) recorded these 2 tracks to promote a now forgotten erotic book named "Lolitissimo" by a guy named René Varrin. In itself, this is already cool...but what is cooler than cool is the fact that these 2 tracks were arranged by the great André Popp himself !! The man behind the "Delirium in hi-fi" (Available here!) lp and the "Piccolo & Saxo" recordings, the man who wrote "Love is blue"... " , says Whoops.

Updated: annukka says there should be an accent. We trust her.

Cuban Television Sets

"In Cuba, television is the most important communication medium and a national pastime. No matter that the TV sets themselves are outdated, pre-revolution relics imported from America or sets from Russia over fifteen years old; green-hued beasts jimmy-rigged with ancient computer parts and fantastically adorned like religious altars.
In Cuba the government controls all media, including the three main newspapers as well as the two television stations. They broadcast news reports, baseball, educational programs, soap operas, and Hollywood movies. Whether used for information or as a background for socializing and drinking rum, during broadcast hours, all TVs in Cuba are ON."

Lift Every Voice

Freedom Singers. "Freedom Is a Constant Stuggle." 1964. Broadside 22 September 1964: 1. From the Marvin Tatum Collection of Contemporary Literature.

"This exhibition takes its name from a hymn composed a century ago by two African-American brothers, James Weldon and J. Rosamond Johnson. Written in the days of the Jim Crow South, "Lift Every Voice and Sing" inspired African Americans to persist in their struggle for equal rights. During the 1920s, the song was being pasted into the backs of hymnals and had become known as the "Negro national anthem." The hymn opens with an injunction to "ring with the harmonies of Liberty," calling for those constitutional rights which were being denied to African American, and closes by affirming God and country. These sentiments frame hopes for a better future, "the white gleam of our bright star." ..." (from Overview)

Week 46 - The 45s, Trevor White / The Cannibals

In 1976 Trevor White played guitar with the Sparks, after the split up of glam band The Jook. A few years earlier he had recorded a track that he now polished up and turned into Crazy Kids (Island) in hope to get some cash out of it. It sure sounded like a hit back then but all good things aren’t to be. But you have to love that blue jumpsuit. Trevor was also the singing voice of Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, though oddly not on the soundtrack.

After singer Mike Spenser got the sack from Count Bishops he formed the Cannibals. A pubrockband that only released a few singles as far as we know. This debut single (Big Cock Records – great name for a label - 1977) is a very decent cover of the Standells Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White.

Merit Hemmingson & the Meritones

Merit Hemmingson & the Meritones "at the Esquire Club" (or perhaps Discoteque dance a go go if this is not the name of a series of records. Does anyone know for sure?) was recorded live on the 1st of February 1966 and released in 1967.

This was the first record Merit ever did and not the most interesting and personal but I definitely think it's worth listening to. I don't believe it has ever been reprinted so until it's released on CD (if ever) go to Martin Klasch to download.

A Hemmingson collection called "Merit/Queen of Swedish Hammond" was released last year and you can buy it here for instance.
If this gets you interested please visit Merit Hemmingsons own website.

click here for better image of the "at the Esquire Club" cover

The cover image is the result of a restoration effort I've undertaken based on a lousy photo found googling. It's pretty close to the original but if you think it looks less than perfect, that's why:)

"My father, Bob Forgnone, got involved in off-road recreation in the late 50's. Pop liked to go clamming at Moss Landing Beach, California, which is halfway around Monterey Bay towards Santa Cruz, right at the location of the large power plant. In order to get to the best clamming spots, they needed some transportation, and this came in the form of "Beach Buggies," which he differentiated from "Dune Buggies" because the Beach Buggies only had enough power and traction for the flat parts of the beach. The early buggies were stripped down cars, sometimes shortened for weight reduction and handling. ..."

The Monks - footage

Mirco has another great little video clip to share: "The Monks were certainly one of the rawest garage-punk bands of the sixties. Five texan soldier kids living in Germany, they were crazy enough to shave their heads and dress like real monks. They opened their perfomance at the Beat Club on '65 with a really noisy instrumental track: tribal beats, an heavy fuzz bass guitar riff, hysterical howls, people torturing the electric guitar...and the audience that tries to dance at it! ..."
