The video isn't that great but the song is relatable.

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

The subject of a recent blog post. This song has been making the rounds about the city in a new New Orleans brass band version.

I liked the original. I love the brass band remix.



Who do you think dances better: Betty or Veronica?

A question we all ask ourselves every day.


What's it gonna be, then, eh?

Roky Erickson passed away yesterday, his band The 13th Floor Elevators was an Austin psychedelic band long before many of the more famous San Francisco bands came along. They had a unique sound as you'll hear in this video of one of their few hits in 1966, the strange bubbling sound is actually an old whiskey jug (the "electric" jug). Cool stuff! ;)

I couldn't pick just one song... so here are my 4 favorites from Whipped Cream And Other Delights.









This is an amazing album, it got me into Herb Albert from the moment I heard it. Lonely Bull is awesome too as is What Now My Love? and Going Places. For a different take on a classic I recommend the remix version of Whipped Cream, just as awesome but different.

LOVE Herb! The Tijuana Brass was always in our house growing up and the fact that he signed and produced the Carpenters at A&M Records solidifies his place in music history. The only shaky thing he ever did was to try and sing This Guy's In Love. :lol:
Here's a song from the Fandango album which I bought in the early 80's. :D

I love Herb Alpert and this album but I love the 'rewhipped' version of it even more.

Sample track. Lollipops and Roses:



YMMV

Psych Ops Planes coming back in at our base in Vietnam used to play this quite often.

Yep, probably the most favorite among the troops. ;)
My Dad was stationed at Phu Kat AFB in 68 and this song by Bobby Vinton was one of his favorites while he was over there, along with "Detroit City" by Bobby Bare.
