“Mairzy Doats” The Merry Macs on Decca 18588 (1944)

Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too,
Wouldn’t you?

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear,
A little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing:

“Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy.
A kid’ll eat ivy too,
Wouldn’t you?”

Oh my God, I am so glad I found this… one of my most magnificent Mom’s favorites and it sure is one of mine, too!

And here’s a rendition by some pipers 🙂

MAIRZY DOATS by The Pied Pipers. A nonsense song that was just fun to sing. I listened to this when I was a kid and never really knew the words, sort of made up my own. From a small group of early Capitol label 78s. Enjoy!

Just so darn wonderful. Those days of yore must’ve been a ton of fun…

Fred Astaire once called this “the greatest dance number ever filmed.” A clip from the movie “Stormy Weather” (1943) featuring Cab Calloway and his orchestra performing “Jumpin Jive” with the Nicholas Brothers

If you have the Monday blues, this will sort it.

Redefining Spectacular!

The Percival Mackey Dance Band tears the roof off the Jazz, sucker.

I dunno… it looks remarkably like Egyptian dancing and walking to me! Just sayin.’

 

 

Frank Zappa – Inca Roads (A Token Of His Extreme)

Eagle Rock

store.eagle-rock.com/title/a-t… DVD: smarturl.it/FrankZappaTokenDVD

EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT and the Zappa Family Trust are pleased to announce the first official release of A TOKEN OF HIS EXTREME, an original program created by FRANK ZAPPA for TV.
Recorded on August 27, 1974 at KCET in Hollywood, A TOKEN OF HIS EXTREME features Frank Zappa with five incredibly talented band members for this extravaganza of live music.
The line-up exists of Frank Zappa—guitar, percussion, vocals; George Duke—keyboards, finger cymbals, tambourine, vocals; Napoleon Murphy Brock—sax, vocals; Ruth Underwood—percussion; Tom Fowler—bass; Chester Thompson—drums.
The Program, as edited and thoroughly tweezed & produced by FZ for Honker Home Video includes these delights: The Dog Breath Variations/ Uncle Meat, Montana, Earl Of Duke (George Duke), Florentine Pogen, Stink-Foot, Pygmy Twylyte, Room Service, Inca Roads, Oh No, Son Of Orange County, More Trouble Every Day, A Token Of My Extreme.
Stereo Mixes Produced by Frank Zappa with Kerry McNabb at Paramount Studios, 1974. Mastered by Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering, 2009
FZ: “This was put together with my own money and my own time and it’s been offered to television networks and to syndication and it has been steadfastly rejected by the American television industry. It has been shown in primetime in France and Switzerland, with marvelous results. It’s probably one of the finest pieces of video work that any human being has ever done. I did it myself. And the animation that you’re gonna see in this was done by a guy named Bruce Bickford, and I hope he is watching the show, because it’s probably the first time that a lot of people in America got a chance to see it.”- FZ appearing on the Mike Douglas Show, 1976
Because ‘Token’ has never been commercially released until now, it is one of the most sought after Frank Zappa programs.

Frank Zappa’s UFO song with ancient civilizations, too… Frank was a wonderfully deep individual.

And… there’s Ruth! Such intensity of talent!

The Illinois Enema Bandit
I heard he`s on the loose
I heard he`s on the loose
Lord, the pitiful screams
Of all them college-educated women…
Boy, he`d just be tyin` `em up
( They`d be all bound down! )
Just be pumpin` every one of `em up with all the bag fulla
The Illinois Enema Bandit Juice
He just be pumpin` every one of `em up with all the bag fulla
The Illinois Enema Bandit Juice

( repeat )

The Illinois Enema Bandit
I heard it on the news
I heard it on the news
Bloomington Illinois…he has caused some alarm
Just sneakin` around there
From farm to farm
Got a rubberized bag
And a hose on his arm
Lookin` for some rustic co-ed rump
That he just might wanna pump

( repeat )

The Illinois Enema Bandit
Some day he`ll have to pay
Some day he`ll have to pay
The police will say “You`re under arrest!”
And the judge would have him for a special guest
The D.A. will order a secret test
And stuff his pudgy little thumbs in the side of his vest
Then they`ll put out a call for the jury folks
And the judge would say “no poo-poo jokes!”
Then they`ll drag in the bandit for all to see,
Sayin`”Don`t nobody have no sympathy…
HOT SOAPY WATER in the FIRST DEGREE!”
And the Bandit might say, “Why is everybody always
pickin` on me?”

WELL DID YOU CAUSE THIS MISERY?
WELL DID YOU CAUSE THIS MISERY?
WELL DID YOU CAUSE THIS MISERY?
One girl shout: “Let the Bandit be!”

BANDIT ARE YOU GUILTY? TELL ME WHAT`S
YOUR PLEA?
Another girl shout: “Let the fiend go free!”

BANDIT ARE YOU GUILTY? BANDIT, DID YOU DO THESE
DEEDS?”
The Bandit say: “It must be just what they all needs…”
etc. repeat

So, so deliciously good!

Just beyond masterful.

Frank is a true hero and was unfortunately far too advanced for most people’s comprehension.
