Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac without Danny Kirwan Live At Carousel Ballroom Jun 9 , 1968 San Francisco CA

Exceptional excellence…

Peter, by the way, HATES when volk say “Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac” as he insists, very properly, that it’s simply “Fleetwood Mac.”

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

Tim Gracyk
Jul 24, 2016

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,

“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 1944

May 6, 2012

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…

Sleep Walk – Santo & Johnny 1959

Oct 24, 2013

The instrumental “Sleep Walk”, written, recorded, and released in 1959 by Brooklyn born Farina brothers Santo & Johnny, rose to the #1 position on the Billboard Top 40 in the Fall of that year and reached number four on the R&B chart. They were one of the best instrumental groups of the 50s and “Sleep Walk” was the last instrumental to hit number one in that decade, earning them a gold record. Santo & Johnny were inducted into The Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 2002

At an early teen age, their Father had the boys take steel guitar lessons. The older brother Santo had a acoustic guitar modified to play like a steel guitar, and by the age of 14, he was composing songs. The duo became very popular in school, eventually performing at events in the New York boroughs. They recorded a demo called “Deep Sleep” which they circulated to local New York record companies. Renamed “Sleep Walk”, the song became their most popular hit and legacy. During fifty-plus years after release, the song has been used in commercials, television shows, movies, and covered by many.

A beautiful, haunting lyrical masterpiece.

Fairchild 670 compressor serial number 10. (!!!) Normally, the faceplates are pretty faded, but this one is pristine. Possibly a different finish used early on.

Wow. This was at the notorious Vintage King Audio. The uninitiated may be shocked to learn that this multi-decade old compressor is worth at least $30,000 and probably more because of the non-faded faceplate. Wow, indeed.

I worked on an audio / video installation at Mr. Fairchild’s apartment in Manhattan with a systems installation contractor I once worked for.


Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition w/ Lyrics

Push Back Now – PBN
Apr 9, 2018


Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Praise the Lord and swing into position
Can’t afford to be a politician
Praise the Lord, we’re all between perdition
And the deep blue sea

Yes, the sky pilot said it, you gotta give him credit
For a son of a gun of a gunner was he

Shouting, ‘Praise the Lord, we’re on a mighty mission
All aboard, we ain’t a-goin’ fishin’
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free’

Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Shouting, ‘Praise the Lord, we’re on a mighty mission
All aboard, we ain’t a-goin’ fishin’
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free’

Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Shouting, ‘Praise the Lord, we’re on a mighty mission
All aboard, we ain’t a-goin’ fishin’
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free’

Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
And pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
And we’ll all stay free

Tomislav Goluban – Do The Right Thing

Tomislav Goluban from 10th studio album CHICAGO RAMBLER
Do The Right Thing (music & txt: Tomislav Goluban)


Tomislav “Little Pigeon” Goluban: vocals & harmonicas
Eric Noden: guitars
E.G. McDaniel: bass
Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith: drums

All rights reserved. P & C 2019

Tomislav “Little Pigeon” Goluban, Croatian blues musician, composer, harmonica player and singer, is unique by his expression. With his passion, sense of humor and catchy appearance, he can really provide the audience with an interesting and original show. His surname “Golub” translates to “Pigeon” in English, providing the inspiration for his stage name.

His tenth studio album, “Chicago Rambler”, was recorded in Chicago’s “Joy Ride Studios”, live across two afternoons in January of 2018. A calm and collected figure, Goluban didn’t have to struggle to connect with the American musicians.

His personal musical sound is a perfect fit for electric Chicago blues, and it’s this combination that works so well! With many elements of classical blues, 12 tracks written by Tomislav Goluban were recorded during a session. The material is concisely performed, spontaneously directed and filled with the Chicago blues atmosphere. A lot is hidden and can be revealed with repeated listens. This is a great combination of everything music is and should be: limitless, creative, brave and unique.

Just found this guy and I am really glad I did!

Dig it.



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

Eagle Rock
Aug 6, 2013… DVD:

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.

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…
And the Bandit might say, “Why is everybody always
pickin` on me?”

One girl shout: “Let the Bandit be!”

Another girl shout: “Let the fiend go free!”

The Bandit say: “It must be just what they all needs…”
etc. repeat

So, so deliciously good!

Just beyond masterful.
