Daily Discovery - Bip Bop Bip b/w Paper Dollar by Pretty Boy - R&B Rockabilly 45 on Atlantic Records #1147
R&B Rockabilly, Yes! You read it right! This is Don Covay under the alias, Pretty Boy. This late 50's tune shows what happens when the power of Rock n' Roll meets the grit of Rhythm & Blues. "Bip Bop Bip" may not sound like a great title but when the music and vocals come together, you quickly change your mind.
Daily Discovery - Hot Rod Henry b/w Born To Be With You by Lola Dee w/ Carl Stevens - R&R 45 on Mercury Records #70870
This is a 1956 R&R tune that has a 1940's swing feel. I had to share this song today because it's a perfect day for cruising. Duets with a female and male going back and forth hold a special place in my heart and this one is no exception. What man doesn't like a woman who knows about cars? Every car mans dream woman. Enjoy this charming little tune.
Daily Discovery - Big Foot b/w Rebecca by Googie Rene - R&B Mod rocker 45 on Class Records #239
There has just been a Bigfoot sighting in Los Angeles. There is no need for alarm, as he is sitting in my record box and I promise I will not let him escape. This is a cross collectable as R&B, R&R, Mods, Monster & Novelty collectors will be soon looking for this wicked cut. Beware, this hairy, beast of a record.
Daily Discovery - Tough Chick by ROCKBUSTERS R&R Surf Instrumental 45 on Cadence Records #1371. Man what a tough chick! The only words said on this mellow surf instrumental. This is dedicated to all the Tough Chicks I know.
Daily Discovery - The Ho-Ho Rock And Roll by Sid Ramin & The Ho-Ho's - Psychedelic R&R 45 on Thunderbird Records #516. The Ho-Ho's are credited to Peter Roberts. Is this the first dj loop ever? The laugh is definitely on a loop, anyone know when loops were first used? The title suggests a Christmas record. Where did this way out 60's psychedelic reverb, 50's rocker come from? and how did these two genres merge? My question won't make sense unless you listen to this odd record's last ho-ho filled groove. One of the weirdest records i have ever heard, and I LOVE IT!
Daily Discovery - Legend Of The Ghost Stage by Fred Darian - Ghost R&R Rockabilly 45 on JAF Records #2020. Flip side is a war record "Battle Of Gettysburg". Death & Distruction, Ghosts and War, makes for a great double sided Rockabilly record.
Daily Discovery - Monster Shindig by Danny Hutton - Halloween Monster R&R 45. Monster roll call, goblins, hip guidos?, creeps spooks, monsters, witches, ghouls, ghoulfriends, dracula, frankenstein, ghosts. Dance anyway you wanna at the monster shindig!
Daily Find – Hell Cats by Davey Jones & The Dolphins – Theme from the 1960′s Movie Hellcats Garage R&R 45
Daily Discovery - Hell Cats by Davey Jones & The Dolphins - Theme from the 1960's Movie Hellcats Garage R&R 45. Trippy!
Daily Discovery - The Day The Town Cried by Cliff Gleaves - Tragedy R&R 45 on Park Ave. Records #103. The flip side is a tale of a man losing his daughter "Little Rosa" a heartbreaking tale. Potential Halloween ghost story. Creepy organ and voice. Weird!
Daily Discovery - Headless Nightmare by Villagers - Creepy R&R 45. Odd Folk R&R on Petal Records #1410. The storm, thunder, wind, decapitation, howls, screams makes for a good Halloween record.
