david-clayton-thomas-surfadelic1

 

Well… hmm… Ok! You probably know this guy from Blood, Sweat & [Shit] Tears, but hey don’t you fret, don’t look away. Here’s s Surfadelic collection of this Canuck singer’s real cool garage/r&b stuff from ’65/’66 albums ”Shays A-Go-Go” & ”Sings Like It Is!” with The Shays [known for ‘Brainwashed’ from The Essential Pebbles Collection]. Some tunes like ”Take Me Back”, ”Want You I Don’t” or ”Brainwashed” are true-bred 60’s garage while others are fine r&b tinged fuzzed-out originals and covers as “Howlin’ (For My Darlin’)”, “Boom Boom”, “Done Somebody Wrong”… This stuff somehow reminds me on Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. 13 trax of garage driven R&B rock, with plenty of cool fuzz guitar breaks all over the place. Now ya know, check some favs’n’ Dig!!!

CHUCK BERRY – Golden Decade Vol.2 [ViNyL RiP!]

Chuck Berry - Golden Decade 2-1

 

Chess not only reissued the 1967. compilation Chuck Berry’s Golden Decade, but also assembled this 1972. second volume, which contains another 24 Berry songs from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s on two LPs. Of course, the first album gathered the best-known and biggest hits, but there was plenty of memorable material left over, and this album contains the Top 40 hits “Carol” and “You Never Can Tell,” the chart entries “Sweet Little Rock And Roller,” “Jo Jo Gunne,” “Run Rudolph Run,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” “Let lt Rock,” “Jaguar And Thunderbird,” “Little Queenie,” and “Promised Land,” the R&B hit “No Money Down,” and such hits-for-others as “Come On” (the Rolling Stones’ first U.K. single). That’s more than enough to earn the album a “best” rating. [William Ruhlmann]

BO DIDDLEY – Bo’s Blues

Bo Diddley blues1

”500%, more man
A living dream
Bo Diddley, baby
More man than you ever seen
A young women’s wish
And a old women’s dream”

”Bo’s Blues features 22 of Bo Diddley’s best blues-oriented sides from the Chess catalog, including some rare stuff — the rip-roaring 1959 outing “Run Diddley Daddy,” a jive-loaded “Cops and Robbers” from 1956 that features maraca shaker Jerome Green more than Diddley, and a surging “Down Home Special.” If you think that everything Bo Diddley ever made has that same shave-and-a-haircut beat, this collection will set you straight!”[Bill Dahl]

From time to time I have to post some Bo’s stuff just to remind you on the master of wyld rhythm & blues. This is Bo intermezzo at Surfadelic.

MITCH RYDER & THE DETROIT WHEELS – Surfadelic Collection !!!

mitch-ryder-and-the-detroit-wheels

 

”Formed in Detroit in 1964. they served as Mitch Ryder’s backup band from 1964 to 1967. The band had a number of top twenty hits in the mid-1960s before lead singer Ryder was enticed away by Bob Crewe with offers of a solo career, after which the group quickly dissolved.

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels had their first big hit in 1965 with “Jenny Take a Ride”, which reached #10 on national charts, and #1 on the R&B chart – the first time a self-contained rock group had achieved the latter distinction. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA. Crewe had originally planned to release the track as a B side, but changed his mind after seeing the reactions of Brian Jones and Keith Richards, of The Rolling Stones, who were in the Stei-Philips studio in New York City as it was being recorded.

 

 

Ryder and the Detroit Wheels followed up with another top twenty hit, “Little Latin Lupe Lu,” which peaked at #17. After a couple of misses, the group had its biggest hit with the “Devil with a Blue Dress On”/”Good Golly Miss Molly” medley which reached #4. Around this period they also recorded a number of albums, largely composed of reworked R&B classics, along with a smattering of original compositions.

In 1967 Ryder had another top ten hit with “Sock It to Me, Baby!”, which was banned by some stations as too sexually suggestive. The band had its last hit with the brassy “Too Many Fish in the Sea”/”Three Little Fishes” single, which reached #24. Crewe then persuaded Ryder to quit the group and embark on a solo career.” [wiki]

Yep! Another Surfadelic comp. This one already have been posted but this is fresh edition, an ultra-dynamic Detroit R&B/Soul rockers collection gathering Mitch Ryder’s best 60’s sides with The Detroit Wheels. Sock it to me baby, Dig!!!
