May I recommend my favorite album of fifty guitars playing at once?

By who else? – The multi-instrumental recording vangaurd, Mr. Tommy Garrett. Seen here during a white hot session with THE MONKEES.

Regarding all “Fifty (whatevers)” records: if you find yourself wanting to further explore this unique, sometimes genius, sometimes queasy making lost sub-genre of instrumental lounge recorderings and long-playing stereo alblums, be warned. All the “Fifty Mandolins of …” albums are un-listenable, most probably demonic-ly generated for the purpose of furthering dark energies in the musical universe and will instantly (and permanently) damage not only your hearing but also your personality…forever….WHAT????   HUH????

Contrarily, this ultra “it” bossa-nova record is clyass. I wore this OUT back in da Beige day.

mmmmm… Caipirinhas … If I were sipping one with my old friend Conn, I might say, “It’s all about the Caxaca, Conn.”

And now ladies and Gentlemen, now that those Olympics are over, let’s go back to the music.

Something Very Weird and Russian

Duke found this crazy track somewhere in the DEEP WEB.

The title is “Нож для Фрау Мюллер – Лучшая девушка в СССР” which translated is  “Knife for Frau Muller – The Best Girl In The USSR.”

I’m still clueless but it makes me laugh and it’s free.

She had a rhinestone brooch on her head. She said she loved finding new places to wear diamonds – a riff on the Monroe quote. 

“not just for today – that’s not long enough” 

Love Peggy. I’m so there with you all. I’m so happy I got see her live at The Ballroom back in the eighties, I believe it was.
