Episodes of D-Sides, Orphans, and Oddities

Some of the music is good. Some is ok. I leveraged my Korean friend's eloquence and polyglot acumen. If you like '70s Korean pop, and some strange covers of KC and the Sunshine Band in different languages, please have a listen.     
The Joseph Consortium (1969) Sides 1 and 2.  Written by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice, this is the musical that everyone knows, recorded and played through a psychedelic prism. I've played this show on bass about a million times. It's almost
The Blue Cats - Nowhere Man (196?) I'm gonna guess 1966 since this band released three albums of covers of their time plus some instrumental originals. Probably German studio guys bringing the Western hits of the day to their homeland.  Diane
There are enough people out there who yearn for the arcane, the odd, the unsuccessful, the strange, and the historically overlooked to justify 200 podcast episodes of D-Sides, Orphans, and Oddities.  This makes me happy, and the topics are inex
A Flock of Seagulls - Telecommunication (1981) EP Released before their debut album. Produced by Bill Nelson. A Flock of Seagulls - It's Not Me Talking (1981)  Bill Nelson - Love Without Fears (1982) Be Bop Deluxe - New Precision (1978) Be
The Beach Bums - The Yellow Beret (1966) Did you know Bob Seger was such a right-wing nut job?  The song is a parody of The Ballad Of The Green Berets by Barry Sadler, a huge hit in February 1966, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Cashbo
a-ha - Lesson One (Take On Me first demo) (1982) Before their one. big, groundbreaking mega-hit (mostly for the video) this song underwent a couple revisions. They knew somehow that they had gold, but they struggled to find a winning chorus. Th
You might like this little slice of relatively well-recorded tomfoolery recorded live at the famous Fillmore East in 1971. What a night it must have been. Anyhow, it really depends on which mix you like better. Lennon and Ono or Frank Zappa.
John Paul Joans - Got To Get Together Now (1970)  John Davidge was a politically motivated and confrontational stand-up comedian In 1970, he made a record for the UK Christmas market. His manager arranged for Eric Stewart, Lol Creme, and Kevi
The Knack - Africa  (1981) From their 3rd album, Round Trip.  Peter Cetera - Holy Moly (1981)  Gerard McMahon - Hello Operator (1976) Robert Lamm - Crazy Way to Spend a Year (1974) Angelo - It Don't Matter (1976) With the Chicago horns, a
My last Carpenters show got wiped for some reason. Maybe the ghost of Karen?  A sound that no one will forget once they hear it. I am talking about those tight harmonies. Richard's scholarly, clever approach to harmonies often goes unnoticed
Carla Bley - Enormous Tots (1974) The vocalist is Julie Tippetts, formerly Julie Driscoll, who sang on releases by Bob Dylan and Donovan. You've heard her before on this show, singing on the Centipede album. Her band of note in the late '60s, B
The Killjoys - Naïve (1977) Featuring Kevin Rowland, later to be the lead singer of Dexys Midnight Runners who had a huge worldwide hit with "Come On Eileen".  Normally I'd frown on such trend-hopping (this was just the first of many image rein
It's hard to embarrass me. But when I tagged along with some friends to the theater to see Rocky Horror Picture Show, with the toast and the actors in front of the screen acting out the scenes as they played on the screen, I finally felt true
Bruford - Age Of Information (1980) I guess, if I'm going to call the Bowie band of 1975-1980 the best band of the decade, this group would come close to that. With the inimitable style of Jeff Berlin on bass and the wonderful Bill Bruford on d
Were The Moody Blues "prog"? I don't think so. They weren't virtuosos in any sense, although they were all very competent (or somewhat competent - Graeme Edge wasn't asked to do much, really) but they WERE unique and extremely popular. And ev
Gilbert O'Sullivan - We Will (1972) Just a nice pre-'US fame' song I thought you might like.  Michael Johnson - Rooty Toot Toot For The Moon (1973) His big hit was "Bluer Than Blue" in 1978.  Produced by Chris Dedrick.  Merry Clayton - Sl
Joe Simon- Come Back Home (1974) I have to play you a Joe Simon song that was used as a sample for a VERY famous Hip Hop song. Not many people know.  Helen Reddy - I Am Woman (1971) The original, superior (to my ears) version. She has appear
Gaylord & Holiday - Dixie (1977) A remnant from the Amherst Records Story show.  Santiago - Nice And Slow (1976) A remnant from the Amherst Records Story show.  Bobby Hatfield - Messin' In Muscle Shoals (1971) One half of the Righteous Brot

Born in North Carolina, Ray Denson started to dance professionally in 1951, taking on the professional name of Billy Lamont. His singing career started in 1956. "(Zap! Pow!) Do the Batman" was recorded for Atlantic in January 1966 with Gate
Allen & Rossi - Sway (1976) POACA will recall Marty Allen's ubiquitous presence on 70s talk shows and game shows. Whether they like it or not. Naw, he was funny! More Allen and Rossi vinyl to come! From Both Sides Now, a wonderful resour
You know, as long as there've been lady parts and attendant man parts to go into them, abortion has been practiced. It always will be. No law can change it either way. The only thing that laws like Roe do is give a safe, clean room in which
Cal Tjader - Along Comes Mary (1967) Cal Tjader - Gimme Shelter (1971) Marran Gosov - Lampenfieber (1977) Now THIS is German Existentialism! The English translation to what he is singing: At the first time came energy At the second the
This show features Rita Lee, the first, best-known singer in Os Mutantes, one of the greatest non-English bands ever. Their music was inspired and free of boundaries, their lyrics subversive and literate. They carried on for years after her dep
