Episode #420: Spies vs. Private Eyes

way out of range on the North Shore…DJ Danny Sigelman aka Groovy Fubar takes over

8/22 in a nutshell…

Wow… I skipped over one of my summary spiels… this one! Well, at this late date of 9/17, let’s do the best we can. “40 Miles of Bad Road” kicked off the “Ooh” in a Lyn Taitt & Baba Brooks style, but the credit on the 45 label (Treasure Isle, btw) doesn’t mention the wild, Krupa-esque drum fill intro that Arkland “Drumbago” Parks rips this jam open with! Gotta do a tribute to that guy one of these weeks… and “Bad Road” (and “Duck Soup”) will be on it! We’ll also one day run a set of the best of the drum-machine overdubs Coxsone recorded over old ska and rocksteady tracks, and another cut we played, Ken Boothe’s “Give Me Back My Heart”, just could be the star attraction of that set. Truth be told, not all of these overdubs worked… just listen to the Soul Bros.’ “Ska-Au-Go-Go” sometime to hear what I mean. But when they were good, they were REALLY good! But enough future-programming teases… what else did we hear HERE? Here’s what… Filipinos Put3Ska were responsible for this week’s Lollipop, local ska mede up the 5@5:05, I’ve blanked on exactly which Froggie bumper I used afterwards, Freddie Notes fronted the Phoenix City All Stars on a Stones cover, Sherwood’s Planet found Shiina Ringo guesting on new tracks by Towa Tei (ex-Dee-Lite) and the mighty Soil & “Pimp” Sessions. Oh, and Claude Gray made his RSST debut with a song that would soon by covered by a young, pre-Wailers Robert Marley. Something about coffee, I believe. Wake up, tune in and stay tuned!
