Comment:

Sammy's recent compilation of artists currently NOT in the RRHOF got me thinking about some rather dated faves of mine. In between classes and work and the initial spring gardening chores, I started digging through some old vinyl and took the proverbial stroll down memory lane. I hope these moments in time, mostly from the mid-60s through the mid-70s conjure up some pleasant recollections of a kinder and more connecting music scene. Who doesn't remember where they were the first time they heard many of these tracks?

Sadly, I don`t seem to have the time I used to for yanking out all this old stuff, but today seemed to be the right day. Enjoy!!

Hail, Hail, Rock and Roll!

Thanks for taking the time to dig. I lived through this era and am not familiar with anything her. Time to go digging myself.

I think I was definitely somewhere on the planet when these sounds emerged, Ken...;- D
"Hail, hail, Rock-n-Roll" indeed!

Methinks you have plucked these bands from fantasy land. I only wish you had heard the Ornithological Crones back in the day.

I'm a little suspicious that you posted this on the day you did, but I do have that fantastic Stiletto Heels song on the b-side of a French single released on this very date in 1969 -- so maybe this is legit :)

Yes, I'm afraid I must demand a trade or link to ease my April Fools suspicions, as I know nada here. Of course if this mix does exist, I double demand!

You're lucky to still have your old vinyl. The sound quality is broader than that found on CDs. Please post more of your wax tracks. Regards.

And the Roaring Dogs.... how we all loved them. Related to the Singing Dogs, were they?
