The Slits - Cut, CD. Unique, original, deeply rhythmic. As Punk as anything ever was. Amongst it's many appealing qualities is an amazing cover of I Heard it Through the Grapevine, completely original.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy, 96/24 MLP DVD-A. DualDisc release, part of a series of most of their albums. Some of the most pointless DVD-As ever, nothing on the disc (no multi-channel) couldn't have been accomplished with a DVD-V. Low-fi classic given the High-Res treatment. Takes a bit of getting used to but ultimately reveals the same energy that the delightfully muffled LP did.

Happy Birthday to the greatest Rock-n-Roll drummer to ever bash the skins! John Henry Bonham would be 72 years old today had he not died September 25, 1980. R.I.P Bonzo.

The Girl Who Invented Rock 'n' Roll is an album by Mamie Van Doren, released in 1986.

Mamie Van Doren (age 89; born Joan Lucille Olander; February 6, 1931) is an American actress, model, singer, and sex symbol. She is perhaps best remembered for the rock 'n' roll, juvenile delinquency exploitation movie Untamed Youth (1957).

In 1951, she caught the eye of famed illustrator Alberto Vargas and posed for him. She became a popular model and made her first screen appearance in 1951’s “Footlight Varieties” starring Jack Parr, and by 1953, she had been signed as a contract player at Universal. Her new name was picked from Dwight Eisenhower's wife Mamie, and from Mark Van Doren, who had become a national celebrity with his victories on several TV Quiz Shows.

At age 22 came her first leading part in Universals low budget exploitation picture “Running Wild”. This was one of the first Hollywood films to cover the newly emerging trends of juvenile delinquency and rock ‘n’ roll. The soundtrack included “Razzle Dazzle” by Bill Haley and the Comets, and the film was sent out on a co-bill with “Tarantula”. In 1955, Mamie married bandleader Ray Anthony. Now she was the stuff of movie magazines, and even the popular scandal magazines, who deemed her important enough for numerous stories.

In 1956, Van Doren appeared opposite a young and unknown Clint Eastwood in Star in the Dust.

In 1957, she appeared in Warner Brothers’ teen epic “Untamed Youth.” Here was a true exploitaition film in all its glory. Sex, violence, corruption, and rock ‘n’ roll. This eighty-minute wonder placed Mamie in a corrupt rural prison farm (she was picked up for hitchhiking). She got to sing her first on-screen songs. “Untamed Youth” is Mamie’s favorite picture. She recalls having Eddie Cochran (who was featured in the film’s musical breaks) over to her house several times, where he would write rock ‘n’ roll songs for her. He played guitar on all the recording sessions for the film.

Untamed Youth was featured in a 1990 Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode.

In 1958 came Mamie’s first featured appearance in a certified “A” picture, Paramount’s “Teacher’s Pet.” The light farce took stars Clark Gable and Doris Day to a seedy nightclub, where Mamie performs “I’m The Girl Who Invented Rock ‘n’ Roll”. In 1960 she starred in Sex Kittens Go to College.

In 1964, Van Doren was a guest at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California when The Beatles were at the club visiting with Jayne Mansfield, and an inebriated George Harrison accidentally threw his drink on her when trying to throw it on some bothersome journalists.

Marilyn Monroe, Mamie, and Jane Mansfield were known as "The Three M's". In 1966, Mamie appeared in The Las Vegas Hillbillys, co-starring Mansfield; this was the only time two of "The Three M's" appeared together in a film.

In her autobiography, Van Doren acknowledged that she had numerous affairs with celebrities, including Clark Gable, Howard Hughes, Johnny Carson, Elvis Presley, Burt Reynolds, Jack Dempsey, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Johnny Rivers, Robert Evans, Eddie Fisher, Warren Beatty, Tony Curtis, Steve Cochran and Joe Namath.

Led Zeppelin II is the second studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released in 1969.

Each song was separately recorded, mixed and produced at various studios in the UK and North America. The album was written on tour, during periods of a couple of hours in between concerts, a studio was booked and the recording process begun, resulting in a sound with spontaneity and urgency through necessity. Bassist John Paul Jones recalled that "We were touring a lot. Jimmy's riffs were coming fast and furious. A lot of them came from onstage especially during the long improvised section of 'Dazed and Confused'. We'd remember the good stuff and dart into a studio along the way."

Robert Plant later discussed the writing and recording process, stating "It was crazy really. We were writing the numbers in hotel rooms and then we'd do a rhythm track in London, add the vocal in New York, overdub the harmonica in Vancouver and then come back to finish mixing at New York."

Led Zeppelin II is ranked number 79 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

John Henry Bonham (31 May 1948–25 September 1980) was an English musician and songwriter, best known as the drummer for the English rock band Led Zeppelin. Esteemed for his speed, power, fast bass drumming, distinctive sound, and feel for the groove, he is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential rock drummers in history. In 24 hours, Bonham had consumed around 40 shots of 40% ABV vodka, after which he vomited and choked (pulmonary aspiration). The finding was accidental death.

In 1995, he was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2016, Rolling Stone ranked him first in its list of the "100 Greatest Drummers of All Time".

Miles Davis ~ Marcus Miller - Music From Siesta



Quote:
A sadly overlooked album, "Music from Siesta" is a soundtrack composed largely by Marcus Miller featuring Miles Davis. Styled as a modern-day Sketches of Spain with Miller in the role of Gil Evans, providing a platform for which Davis can solo, the album remarkably succeeds at its billing.

Miller provides a backdrop of Spanish rhythms and sounds not unlike Evans did, although, Miller handles most of the instruments (primarily synthesizers, bass guitar and bass clarinet) other than the trumpet himself, with occasional guest spots. Out of Davis, he coaxes the sort of aching beauty and tormented balladry that made Sketches of Spain so great, with Davis digging deep providing delicate solos on the backdrop established by Miller.

He's on my bucket list to see. The more I learn about his contributions to country music and help he's given so many artists, as well as how talented a player and singer he is, the more I wonder why he's not name dropped with other CM elite more often other than by the insiders. Definitely a hall of famer.
