Odds and Ends

Two fake hit singles from the past that we invented during conversations this weekend:

"Are Those Your Personal Grapes" by Eight Foot Bulb
(this strikes me as being perhaps a James Brown style funk record)

"Have You Ever Tried to Get Rid of an Igloo" by "V'nectarines"
(I have no idea...)

And now, the moment no one's been asking for, Bob's listening list for June. Last month's listening was heavily impacted by having gathered together some of the hits of 1960 for an upcoming poll I'll be doing for friends, as well as renewing my love of a few song-poems ("s-p"), and finally, getting around to listening to a very interesting Latin-American influenced Percy Faith album from 1953.

I'd be happy to send any of the following to the gmail site, should anyone reading this request it. Here's the list:

1.) In God We Trust - Jeff Reynolds (s-p)
2.) Wow! Wow! Wow! - Percy Faith
3.) Pineapple Princess - Annette and the Afterbeats
(just an aside to say that I really wish there was a radio station which would play a mix such as the above three)
4.) Be American - Harold Duncan (almost a s-p)
5.) This Little Girl of Mine - Ray Charles
6.) My Heart is an Open Book - Carl Dobkins, Jr.
7.) Jungle Fantasy - Percy Faith
8.) Sleep - Little Willie John
9.) Bumble Bee - LaVern Baker
10.) Zoomba Zoomba High Kicka Zoomba - Norris the Troubadour, Seaboard Coastliners (s-p)
11.) Dance By the Light of the Moon - The Olympics
12.) Jamaican Rhumba - Percy Faith
13.) Someday - Rodd Keith (s-p)

The above titles are the ones I don't have and haven't heard! I'd love to hear them! And as for the others, I love all those! This Little Girl Of Mine, what a record! And Someday is a really beautiful Rodd record, I must admit! -Mike!
