I'd forgotten one of my faves from the early 60's....the track that inspired the hand-clap chant on the football terraces

The Routers and Let's Go (Pony)



and another of my faves ...The James Taylor Quartet and the Starsky and Hutch theme

King Crimson seems to have followed the Beatles into YouTube exile, so here is a live 'Red' performed with different members than the record.


Speaking of the Fabs....here's the only recorded Lennon/Harrison tune, 'Cry for a Shadow', recorded in Germany. Sony apparently doesn't own it:

Jeff Beck is solid Gold...and has been since Jeff's Boogie and Jeff's Bolero rang through.  He does a fine Amazing Grace too.
Fleetwood Mac is a close second...but not close enough...so?  They get a little Silver medal.
The Sand-Pail Sailors lag way/WAY behind as a weak turd...sorry...third.  Not their best instrumental.  Hash?

And dead last...der-bangles.  Never really thought they had much going for them to begin with.  A novelty act.

I'll go to the BotB's polling place now. 

Gold - Jeff Beck and his amazing band.  Yes, Tal Wilkenfeld is amazing and Lizzie Ball and Jonathan Joseph = first class musos.  JB is at an interesting place now as an artist.  JB evolves! 

Silver to the Bangs go Bangles.  Fun and very garagy.  You can dance to it.
Scoot ahead to 89 AND the Bangles became only the third "girl-group" to score multiple number-ones in the United States, after the Supremes (12) and the Shirelles (2)

Bronze tie to BOTH the Diamond Head BB's and Albatrossed Mac.

I've actually seen all four bands perform at least once. 

Good week, Bonnie

Jeff Beck gallops another furlong and begins to gain some ground, while the boys slip back to almost join the Bangles.

Albatross, it seems, can do no wrong.  But what will Darren's opinion be?

Seagulls, John B?  Don't crush the beauty of this clip by mentioning the rat of the sky.  In fact, now you've got me wondering. Anybody out there able to identify that kind of bird?  (As opposed to the Hoff kind of bird.)

FYI.  I am going to create a youtube playlist out of this week.  (Maybe not everything our Lisa posts will go in there, I'll save them for a whole different playlist entirely.)  I'll also comment at the end of the week on the songs that stood out to me.

Thanks to everyone who has voted and contributed so far, especially David Doubleyou, who came up with some excellent stuff.

Here's one Americans will probably recall...but you probably haven't heard it since 1969, when it peaked at #40 on the Billboard charts.
Rhinoceros - Apricot Brandy

happier playing the added in contributions this week
than the 4 in contest.

a good excuse to listen again to miles's coooool 'boplicity'
- just love the way the instruments play alongside each other,
rather like bw's use of double tracked vocals.
and that  gerry mulligan baritone sax is the stand out solo.

i dared to indulge in soft machine ,
only to remind m'self that it's still not the easiest listening.

top marks for the utterly fab weather report 'birdland' pick.
always happy to hear that played.
 
and an unfamiliar little walter track i did enjoy.

here's  my contribution:
the somewhat eccentric jonathan richmond with his modern lovers
'egyptian reggae'

T,  always a BIG yes to Apricot Brandy and did not know that it charted.  I had the album (with the multi colored rhino on it) and ONLY played that song on it - over and over.  Thanks back also Paul as anything Weather Report was outstanding.  I almost put on some Jaco things and/or Cucumber Slumber.  Tal Wilkenfeld is almost modern Jaco but plays with so much touch and feel.  

Meantime, more Bangles (with vocals) but try to erase the vocal in your mind and get the garage in this as well:

And:

I suppose when you break down the rap (trap) that it's beat music in essence with a rhyme on top of it:

Lotta good listening this week.

bonnie, your choices left me speechless for my sorting process. A little difficult, but I'll settle for:

GOLD -- F-Mac, Albatross -- I knew they were in existence pre-Stevie Nicks (never understood why some women are so enthralled with her anyway). Restful and earthy.

SILVER -- Beach Boys, Diamond Head -- I guess it's the cozy, earthy sounds that inched this ahead of that geetar hero JB. 

BRONZE -- Jeff Beck, Women of Ireland -- It did "take me somewhere" pretty much like the previous two, plus I have some Irish blood courtesy of my late great Dad's descendants. 'tis a very honourable Bronze, me buckos...

PEWTER -- The Bangles, Bitchen' Summer -- The gals originally known as The Bangs, which is similar hair terminology as "fringe"  for the Brits. Name changed over concerns of naughty connotations. Nice find, cool Dick Dale-ish tune, but alas, they pulled the short straw this week.

Well done, bonnie! I managed to dig up one not too obvious (i.e. "Green Onions") nor already mentioned for you all to dig. Here's former Pretender, Robbie McIntosh, as part of Macca's band in 1993 with a solo Chet Atkins tribute for your pickin' and grinnin' pleasure:

Gold - Albatross (Fleetwood Mac - 1968)
More somnambulant than Santo & Johnny.

Silver - Diamond Head (The Beach Boys - 1968)
Only because it’s credited to the Boys. But it ain’t them. Filler. And good luck trying to whistle it.

Bronze - Bitchen Summer (The Bangles - 1982)
They captured the sound. Now if they’d only thought of a tune. Tepid. ‘Voyage Around the Moon’ by The Saturn 5 (1964) was way more bitchen.

Participant - Women of Ireland (Jeff Beck - 2013)
That would’ve been my toilet break.


(Voyage Around the Moon - The Saturn 5)

Plenty of instrumentals I love. My parents’ record collection was full of them.

I grew up on this.


(Mrs Robinson - Enoch Light and the Light Brigade)

Love Herb Alpert and all the copy-cat bands. To me, a good instrumental has to have a decent melody. This rocks!


(Tijuana Taxi - Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass)

A fave instrumental is this one by Paul Mauriat. Five weeks at #1 in the US in early 1968.


(Love is Blue - Paul Mauriat)

(actually, the Wrecking Crew)
(No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach’s In) - The T-Bones)
