"because the Fall Of Another Year"


We lost Jack Bruce. Not easy to be in a band like Cream with someone like Clapton, and still be noticed. But even then, there was so much more to the man than just that group. I hope you enjoy "Rope Ladder To The Moon",  a 1969 documentary by Tony Palmer.

...but since I mentioned them......

It Can't Be Denied!

Transmission 6714

Some say it's the singer, not the song. In many cases - a true statement and although all our warblers are impressive, in this instance the tunes set the tone. Enjoy these time-tested toe-tappers from The Dolly Rocker Movement, The Donkeys, The Bees, Humble Pie, Japan, P.M. Dawn, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Bryan Ferry, Harry Nilsson, Jeff Beck Group, Blind Willie McTell, The Kinks and Rory Gallagher!

"when a lovely flame dies, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"


*Although not officially part of our Under The Covers Set, "(I've Been) Drinking Again" performed here by Jeff, Rod and Co. was written in 1962 by Doris Tauber and Johnny Mercer and  memorably vocalized by Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington and Bette Midler, among others.

Here is the wonderful "Memory Layne" from The Dolly Rocker Movement 4 song EP "A Sound For Two". Enjoy.....

"It comes from r&b and soul"


*I was rocking out to the Transmission and I noticed I did not mention that the third song in my "NYC Trilogy" was Garland Jeffreys "Hail Hail Rock & Roll". There is not a bad album in his discography, but I highly recommend "Don't Call Me Buckwheat" released in 1992!

**There are many opinions as to The First Rock & Roll Song. It is my humble opinion that it was "My Daddy Rocks Me With One Steady Roll" by Tampa Red & The Hokum Jug Band. It was recorded in 1929, 25 years before "Rock Around The Clock" and it also featured the first simulated orgasm (by Frankie "Half Pint" Jaxon), 46 years before Donna Summers and Giorgio Moroder brought sex back onto the dance floor with "Love To Love You Baby" in 1975!
