6/6/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

(6/6/13) 

This was a good week for back-to-backs in the “Ooh”… back-to-back Marleys (Rita’s “Pied Piper” and Bob’s“Judge Not”), back-to-back Roland Alphonsos (“Bali Hai” and “How Soon”) and back-to-back “Soon You’ll Be Gones” (by The Blues Busters and Steve Alaimo). Sherwood continued hearing double in the “Voov” with two apiece by Jimmy Giuffre & his Music Men and Piero Umiliani, and three by Raymond Scott (yep… triple!) as well as a pair of spaced-apart Ken Nordines. Also appearing twice is Shiina Ringo. In the Home Stretch, Miss Finland 1977 Armi Aavikko sang the Lollipop (in the early ’80s), the 5 were 7+min. stretchouts with the TSPO (featuring Hiromi!) clocking in mere seconds short at 6:56, and David Hillyard going long for 9:57. Want some great slow ska? “Don’t Forget” about SOJA, from their mostly-reggae Born in Babylon release. ‘Til next week, Tune In… and Stay Tuned!
