Philosophical question:

What’s the difference between the Spencer Davis Group . . .

and the Chicago Transit Authority?

It’s obvious. More cowbell.

It’s unreal, the suffering . . .

I have to take a break from Palin and McCain, given that I’m so underwhelmed with their collective intellectual, spiritual and philosophical depth. So why not a little more Electric Light Orchestra, before they went irreversably disco and dance? ~M will share my creeping nostalgia, and Stiletto can shake her head at the old folks.

Hey, it was cool when I was in high school . . .

Call me perverse, but

I happen to find this bit of dichotomy touching, despite it being a love song to a straight razor . . .


And one for Stiletto, since she likes The Band . . . . (Go to comment #2 for a working link or go here: . For some reason, it won’t allow an embed or .

Summer evening music

Filed under: cool stuff, music — Tags: , , , , — Frontier Former Editor @ 10:44 pm

One of those songs that always put me in the summer mood back when I was in elementary and junior high school. Still does, too . . .

So did and does this . . .

I’m too tired to tonight.

One of the fundamental problems with commercial radio these days . . . .

is that you don’t hear enough of songs like these and in full length. Enjoy – I’m disgusted after realizing what a horrible time this country is going to have after the first Tuesday in November, and I could use the chill too.

Big horns = big rock and roll

Filed under: cool stuff, music, old times — Tags: , , , , — Frontier Former Editor @ 11:50 pm

I’ll spill my guts now – I’m a sucker for the big horn section rock and funk groups of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago Transit Authority (not that schmaltzy Peter Cetera crap that Chicago became in the late 70’s and 80’s), Tower of Power (even if one of their number founded BALCO)

Whoda thunk, though, that a member of KISS would get the attraction too?

and for the original . . .

Takes some of the weirdness off the case of the patriotic crapper . . .
