CERRONE - Cerrone's Paradise

Okay, here's trying not to be a lazy bastard and post a little more than just another youtube clip, without any kind of a story to go with it.
He is almost sixty years and grey now, but still alive and kicking: Marc Cerrone! (Kermit: YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!) I've got all of his records and I play them almost every day. No, that's not true. It's actually a bold lie. I only have one record of Cerrone and I played it once or twice, I think. Anyway, I didn't buy it for the music, but for the girl on the cover that fitted nicely into my sleeve-girls project, but then the picture was removed by photobucket, because of violation of terms and I had to upload it to my own account and now it is hotlinked by others and causing bandwidth overflow. Info on youtube says this clip was done by the Monty Python team.

Reader's question: has anyone seen "Brigade Mondaine" by Eddie Matalon? How was it?

Rod McKuen, Deep as the Deep Blue Sea

Home to the Sea was a collaboration between smarmily-sincere 70s poet Rod McKuen and composer/arranger Anita Kerr, who should have known better than join forces with Rod.

I was going to add a video of Rod McKuen in action, but was physically unable to sit through an entire video of him reading his poems about his cat and his failed love life. Home to the Sea is unwittingly hilarious in its attempts at profundity-- I'm sure it was used in many (probably failed) seductions in the 70s.

On the back cover Rod tells us to try to listen to the album before buying, because you'd probably be happier with something more "predictable". You got that right, Rod! Though the cut "Bathtub Surfing" from the album is kinda funny and odd, and worth a listen.

Donna Summer as a harem girl

This clip - I don't know where it came from. It features future disco chart-topper Donna Summer. She is about twenty years old in this and still may have been going by her birth name (LaDonna Gaines). She is singing in German and wears a harem costume.

"Score with a Mate every month"

Alice Coltrane (August 27,1937- January 12,2007)

Alice Coltrane's first solo l.p. - A Monatastic Trio - was a tribute to her late husband, John Coltrane, who passed away a year before its' release. This l.p. features noted jazz musician like Rashied Ali, Pharoah Sanders, Ben Reily, and Jimmy Garrison. On it, the late Mrs. Coltrane (who was born on this day, in 1937) plays the harp and the piano. This l.p. - as with many of her recordings - falls under the Avant-Garde jazz banner. It is a times very soothing to hear and just a lovely album to listen to. Check out the tune I have posted - "Ohnedaruth" - and see…hear for yourself.

Terrorist Attack!

"Terrorist Attack", a 35 card factory set that profiled famous terrorists and terrorist acts of the last century was issued by the Piedmont Candy Company in 1987. Honing in on the success of the "Mars Attacks" set previously issued, 25 years earlier, the set features some jaw dropping art work and currently sells in the $15 to $25 dollar range at collector shows.

Back of card reads - "Being a terrorist is not an easy occupation. The average terrorist is an ignorant and illiterate slime who has difficulty using a fork, much less operating a machine gun or rocket launcher. Therefore, those nations that feel national policy is advanced through kidnapping and murder of innocent people need training camps where terrorists can learn their repulsive skills. Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Syria and Libya are among the nations which train terrorists how to kill unarmed tourists and workers. These nations then supply their murderous vermin with weapons, supplies and even targets of attack. After an attack has been made, these countries claim that the terrorists were working independently. Of course, when their training camps get attacked, these countries throw diplomatic temper tantrums at the United States."

In this post 9/11 climate, they have become a pariah of the non-sports collectible world. All the more reason to have them in your collection.

The Whistler and His Guitar

From 1964, early Toots Thielemans--no harmonica, just a man, his guitar, and his pursed lips. Also featuring Dick Hyman, and Don Lamond. And not to disappoint those of you who share my love of stupid song titles, I have chose the cut entitled "Indiana Nuts" to represent the album.

You can either get the FLAC version not divided into separate cuts here, or get it nicely converted to MP3 and divided (by ME, you're welcome), here

"With its stunning production design and photography, 'Piccadilly' depicts London through an otherworldly cocktail of influences, blending the debauchery of the rich West End set with the sleazy excitement of a Limehouse dive bar and the city's smoky Chinese quarter.

German émigré E.A. Dupont, who brought an international flair to late-'20s British cinema, also tackles the then risqué subject of inter-racial sex. As Shosho, who works her way from kitchen hand to star attraction at the eponymous nightclub, via a love tryst with its (attached) owner, Chinese-American star Anna May Wong represents the ultimate, and ultimately doomed, Deco diva."

Rock and roll.

The Swedish blog Radiovikarien had an entry 3 years ago about the 10 December 2007 Led Zeppelin re-union at the Ahmet Ertegün Tribute Concert. The author of the blog had access to a press archive. He found an intersting photo of Zeppelin in Sweden.

The caption translated from Swedish:
"Archival footage from 1973 of hard rock group Led Zeppelin at the porn club Chat Noir in Stockholm, receiving the gold records which are placed against the bed on which the clubs sex artists perform. From the left
John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Bonham. Photo: Bertil Ericson."

Galeria of Semi-Failed Dance Crazes: The Letkiss

Finland's Letkiss may not qualify for a failed dance craze, because it seems to have persisted through at least 2001. Should this dorky little dance appeal to you, you can get a collection of Letkiss music that includes the Beatnik Letkiss, the Royal Letkiss, and the Swan Letkiss, which are virtually indistinguishable to my ear.

This is the Italian version:

Is this the pop Minuet Bunny Hop Letkiss? I am confused.

That's The Way the Ball Bounces

Swinging Willie Davis crooning away on this novelty record from 1963. Also features the smooth stylings of Maury Wills with his rendition of "Somebody's Keeping Score". The team went on to win close to 100 games that year and swept the Yankees in the World Series. Desuko might want to convince Manny to grab some studio time and bust a move. Karma.
