I like this thread. Please keep posting! It's not necromancy if it's your own work in progress!

Or is it?

Hey, thanks for the message of support! That´s really appreciated, misspoptart.

This morning I learned that Acker Bilk has died - an event that should not go unremarked. Even in his heyday he was something of a retro joke to irreverent youngsters such as myself. For young boys all fired up on Twist and Shout , it was difficult to take his name, his waistcoats or his brand of schmaltz seriously.

None the less he had one of the most maudlin mega-hits ever, so get the tissues ready and let´s hear it one more time for Acker:-

Before he got a turntable, i had my friends vinyl collection and he had an Acker Bilk record, it was called London Tea Time or something along those lines. I didn't think much of the record when I first listened to it, but I listened to it again. My turntable was set to 45 speed from a previous record I was listening to, and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot more.

RIP Mr. Acker Bilk, shame to hear he's passed.

The Man With the Golden Arm soundtrack with a very cool inner sleeve!

Bert Tenzer's pitch for a simple Organ (you know the kind that had the Bass/Chord buttons on the Left side while your right was playing the melody) was something I found in a HUGE batch of them in some antique shop, must have been about 50 of the damn things there! The bummer is that there's no YouTube for me to unleash the campy cool onto you!

Thankfully, I can also say that I found an album of Hour Glass-era Allmans as well as as those very early Rod Stewart sides that get re-packaged over and over again as well...The Stewart's certainly no Never a Dull Moment, but it's nice to have around, especially as a cut out!

> Hey I forgot about that possibility with the old turntables; all the speeded up vocals sounded like The Chipmunks - and Acker Bilk must´ve sounded a bit more lively too. I remember playing a 45 rpm copy of I am the Walrus at 33.3, which turned it into a new kind of weird that I didn´t hear again until coming across GY!BE

> I was expecting a James Bond theme with The Man with the Golden Arm soundtrack, so I was very pleasantly surprised, Screen 13 - thanks for posting. That dated cool, like the Rod Stewarts, has a charm all it´s own - well, for me at least.

> Different era, different intention:-
Gassenhauer by Carl Orff probably suffers now from being too well-known, but it´s only one of a number of Schulwerk pieces that Orff wrote during the 1940's. Designed to be played and enjoyed by children, they give us a chance to rediscover a musical innocence too:-

Just came across this short clip from 1958, and this seemed to be the right place to share it:

See the funny design in the circle - top left? It is a ligature of THP which stands for Town Hall Party. The only reason those shows were perserved was because they were filmed on Kinescope (aka telerecording in the UK). I always feel lucky that stuff was able to survive and I got a chance to see it. Wanda hobnobbed with Elvis, funny how they both did the same song. She had a strong set of pipes like Brenda Lee, and a similar style of singing.

Gene Vincent also appeared on THP. The guitar player he had with him was Johnny Meek. (Not to be confused with the UK record producer Joe Meek.) He is unsung guitar player. Johnny Meek is playing a translucent white Stratocaster, basically the same kind of guitar Mary Kay played used. Gene survived the automobile accident that fatally injured his friend Eddie Cochran. Eddie was trying to protect his girlfriend and was thrown from the taxi.

You'll pretty much notice where The Shadows get their dance moves from.

Gene Vincent - Be Bop A Lula


Eddie Cochran - C'mon Everybody

Wanda Jackson did know how to rock it in the fifties.


This is probably my favorite...
