Norma Tanega - A Street That Rhymes At 6 A.M.



Miss Tanega, back again. What a voice. Anyone catch the verse melody reminiscent of Ain't Nothing but a Houseparty?

France Gall - Comment Lui Dire



So good. Check out how the verse changes time signature from 8/8 to 7/4 to 6/4, making the chorus seem to arrive a little sooner than it should.

Recorded in Chicago and featuring Paul Butterfield's band with Peter Cetera on bass, this is the song that our favorite Greek weirdos named themselves after.

Mama Cass - I Like What I Like (Live)



Whoa, weird! Mama Cass's live version of the proto-disco/early gay anthem originally by Canada's Everyday People (not to be confused with the US's or the UK's). She chose herself one hell of a backing band, too.

Jimmy Castor Bunch on Soul

We've been fans of PBS' Soul show for a long while now. A sort of subdued, more "culturally aware" east coast version of Soul Train, this audience had no idea what it was in for when The Jimmy Castor Bunch made an appearance in 1973.
