Here's an unusual DJ move: Monica used Nat Roe's 1958 Chart Sweep after Betty Logan's "I Got My Hot Pants On." Nat's composition of layered sound becomes a unified track in Monica's set. That's not the only example. Liz Berg played Joe McGasko's remix of Sun Ra's "The Planet Is Doomed." Is the song the composition? The Remix? The set? Answer: If the sound delights the heart and ears, it doesn't matter.
Not unusual is a DJ grouping tracks with a similar sound. Duane did this with 1960's harmony pop, playing the Sandpipers theme to Russ Meyer's 1970 film, Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls, Cyrcle, then Giant Jellybean Copout's "Look At The Girls," which is really the Critter's experimenting with light psychedelia."Look At The Girls" was the flip side to the Copout's only single "Awake In A Dream" played by Todd-O-Phonic Todd.
John Allen played jazz guitarist Howard Roberts from his 1975 Equinox Express Elevator, a very late issue from the ABC Impulse! label. There's no sturdy black and orange spine, which singles out 1960's Impulse! recordings, such as Albert Ayler's "New Grass/Message From Albert," played by Jesse on the Fro Show.
I hope you have recovered from last week's snow and power failures. If still doing so, enjoy this archive of jazz violinist Sugarcane Harris, played on Frank O'Toole's More Exciting Moments. Frank entled this show "Slush Is Not A Drink," which we just relearned in painfully visceral fashion.
