R.I.P. founding Jive Five members. <3 The early Eighties weren't exactly a heyday for Doo Wop on the radio. Nor was that my folks' thing at all, so it was Marshall Crenshaw's still-great *Field Day* which first brought this song to my attention. Anyway, Happy Black Friday to all who celebrate:

The word is Jam

#Funkadelic “Get Off Your Ass and Jam” from “Let’s Take It To The Stage,” 1975

I’m sorry, do you need me to explain this to you? Check your pulse.

Sure sure, go read about #GeorgeClinton’s time as a #TinPanAlley songwriter, the seasoned session musicians that he joined with his old #BarberShop’s #DooWop group, the #Parliaments, psychedelicized by dropping massive amounts of #acid, funkafied à la #JamesBrown, to form Funkadelic. and how, possibly with a dose of #SunRa, definitely with a big hit of #StarTrek, he helped define what we now call #Afrofuturism
but I find it more telling that a very rock/punk guy I knew who used to put on dorm parties would put this track at the end of every party mix. Twice.

Because, as #Parliament, the other incarnation of Clinton’s band, would soon proclaim: WE WANT THE #FUNK.

There are people who find doo wop music boring and perhaps even cretinous. I would be astonished if any of them had ever attempted to perform, arrange or produce doo wop music. #DooWop #RhythmAndBlues

Song of the Day - No 96

Showaddywaddy - Three Steps To Heaven

WIKI
"Three Steps To Heaven" is a catchy, upbeat cover song by Showaddywaddy. The lyrics share a simple yet effective formula for achieving happiness and success in life through three essential steps: finding a lover, earning their trust, and vowing commitment.

The original was co-written and recorded by Eddie Cochran, released in 1960

"Blue Moon" by the Marcels is a classic oldie that sounds suspiciously similar to the Collegians' "ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM". But, you can judge for yourself:

Recently I've been on a Connie Francis binge. One of the better singers of ever. If anyone's read her autogiography, is it any good?

Found a rare 78 RPM record at a thrift shop: "Gee" by The Crows. Oft considered the 1st #RockAndRoll record to become a big hit (1953), a snippet of "Gee" opens Brian Wilson's SMiLE just before his "Our Prayer." #NowPlaying #Vinyl #shellac #records #recordcollection #DooWop

Good evening. Half way through this they go full on four part harmony & it really knocks me out. #doowop #doowopmusic #theravens

There's a truck driving school in town. They drive by often. Just a while ago, after a very rocky Friday the 13th, I composed this little ditty for the day. #Saturday #Singing #Song #DooWop #BiPolar #MentalHealth #MusicTherapy https://youtu.be/ucTfLr2vBSw

One of my favourite bands of all time, #Estradasphere, utterly defied categorisation; they seamlessly mixed western & eastern #folk, #jazz, #classical, #doowop, #RockAndRoll and #metal together. Sadly they’ve been on permanent hiatus since 2010.

However, some Estradasphere alumni got together over lockdown and created this as #HighCastleTeleorkestra, released last June. It’s definitely in the same spirit and worth listening to!

While I wait for midnight (Central time), I was listening to some music. I'd thought I was in the mood for #rockabilly but it turns out I'm actually in the mood for #doowop.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Seems the Lymon family used Teen labour in their groups? 😂

I wasn't sure until I looked it up, Lewis was the last surviving member of the Teencords, died in 2013, lesser known than his brother, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers

Locksley is (was?) a band that describes their sound as #DooWop #Punk... but somehow it sounds like #britpop

Great sound, video and vibes.
