LOOK WHAT I HAVE FOUND vol 169
In The Trashcan
rock and roll rhythm - micky hawks & moon mullins
B-side of "Bip bop boom", also a terrific rock 'n' roll tune. I love his "Cottinpickin'" too. He had a few releases on Profile Records and his first one on Piedmont.
|9. bib bop boom - micky hawks & moon
Wild wild wild screaming rock 'n' roll from 1958 by The Night Raiders, the band of Micky Hawks and Moon Mullins.
rockin' charlie pt1 - bobby peterson quintet
Instumental piano rock 'n' roll from 1960 by the Bobby Peterson Quintet released on V-Tone Records.
| 10. rockin' charlie pt2 - bobby peterson
Part 2 is actually better, more bongos, more sax.
walkin' home - the rockets
Guitar instrumental from the "year of the instrumentals": 1959. All the ingredients are present: guitar, sax, piano, bass and drums.
| 11. gibraltar rock - the rockets
Great swingin' instro jerk from 1959 on Columbia by this unknown combo. I like this so much and so do all those crazy dancers at parties.
fun house - the roosters
Uptempo frat instrumental from 1959. On the other side there's "Chicken hop".
| 12. chicken hop - the roosters
Great boppin' instrumental jerk on the rare Shar-Dee Records label. One of the finest chicken songs I know. From 1959.
little bo - the royaltones
Great instrumental rockin' titty twister from 1959 on Jubilee Records
| 13. seesaw - the royaltones
B-side of "Little Bo". Another excellent strollin' instrumental tune that really rocks.
poor boy - the royaltones
The poor boy's guitar pickin' in combination with the sax makes me happy. A 1958 Jublilee release.
| 14. wail! - the royaltones
The wildest Royaltones song I know. Screechin' guitar, wailin' sax and catchy rhythm and groove on this flipside of "Poor boy".
movin' up - the spacemen
My first Spacemen single was their debut single "The clouds/The lonely jet pilot". I loved their sound instantly. Listen to the sleazy instrumental and try to disagree. A 1960 release on Alton Records.
| 15. lucky bluebird - the spacemen
And this side is even sleazierů straight from the local strip joint where the lucky bluebeard smokes another cigarette.
rockin' crickets - the rockin' rebels
Amazing instrumental with crickets playing the guitar. Totally nuts in 1963 on Swan Records and in the UK on Stateside;
| 16. hully gully rock - the rockin' rebels
Inside a strip joint in a Las Vegas back alley where semi-naked dames dance the jelly belly hully gully from dusk till dawn.
