Sometimes (and shamefully so) forgotten titans of early R&B . . .

The 5 Royales, "Think"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

The 5 Royales, "I Like It Like That"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

The 5 Royales, "Baby Don't Do It"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

. . . to whom Stax legend Steve Cropper (whose idol was 5 Royales guitarist/chief songwriter Lowman Pauling) paid a marvelous tribute a few years ago with some special guests:

Steve Cropper with Steve Winwood, "Thirty Second Lover"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

Steve Cropper with B.B. King, "Baby Don't Do It"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

Steve Cropper with Lucinda Williams, "Dedicated to the One I Love"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1
(Yes, that "Dedicated to the One I Love"---Lowman Pauling originally wrote it for the 5 Royales.)

They started as a sharp gospel ensemble before moving naturally to R&B. This box set tells their whole story admirably:

This is the original, written and recorded by the brother of blues legend Brownie McGhee . . .

Stick McGhee, "Drinkin' Wine, Spo-dee-o-dee"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0lmX06odhw

. . . and the best remake of it (without the "spo-dee-o-dee," alas) came in 1968:

Meanwhile, among the oddly-named jewels . . .

Slim Harpo, "Tee-Ni-Nee-Ni-Nu"

Dusty, I only want to be with you.


Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

I once looked at amazon, and especially the amazon.co.uk part, there were all kinds of books on her, like she was the biggest in music. I get as to how talented she was. I understand that. Check it out some time.

There is a pretty good bio here, @TomSea . She brought Motown to the UK, was described as the finest white female soul singer, and was inducted into the US and UK Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, and was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, (the feminine equivalent of knighthood, making her Dame Dusty..) Really, quite a career.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

I can't let go - The British Invasion

The Settlers - The Lightning Tree (was the theme song for a tv show called "Follyfoot")

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

The song is a limerick or something;
Down in the meadow where the wind blows free, in the middle of a field stands a lightning tree.
It's limbs all torn from the day it was born for the tree was born in a thunderstorm.

Grow, grow, the lightning tree, it's never too late for you and me;
Grow, grow, the lightning tree, never give in too easily.

Down in the meadow
where the wind blows light, the lightning struck in the middle of the night.
Limbs stripped bare by the lightning flare the lightning flare was a wild affair.

Down in the meadow where the wind blows cold, the lightning tree stands stiff and old.
Branches bent when the lightning rent the lightning rent from the firmament.

Down in the meadow with the wind in the west, the lightning tree faced up to the test.
Its heart went snap when it took the rap, the terrible rap of the thunder clap.

Down in the meadow when the wind blows free, a whispering breeze in the lightning tree.
Dreams come true if you want them to if you want them to, then it's up to you.

One of those one-off songs, love it...
