LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that awesome guitar. Right from the opening chord this song gets my attention.


Remember, "Walk, Don't Run", by the Ventures?

I feel like I heard it before.

Sing along to the words! I fell in love with this song after listening to it on a live album.

Fats' version of Blueberry Hill is an American Classic - nice choice crow!


Here's another American Classic.

The Beatles changed the the music landscape. The music industry was never the same after the Fab Four's "new sound" made everything else sound obsolete. Many careers were changed also by the arrival of The Beatles, some careers ended.

Dean Martin's career was declining and the new wave of rock 'n roll might doom his next album into his last album.

Almost as a lark, Dean and his band, (plus a full orchestra and chorus), recorded a song so popular it knocked The Beatles off the No. 1 spot on many music charts for over six weeks!

This is the song that saved Dean Martin:

His career could've easily ended 'cause of The Beatles' reign of supreme, but thanks to this song, that wasn't the case.

The high-pitched vocals is worth a listen. That's what the oldies so essential.

Ya know crow, I always thought Frankie and the gang were all Jersey boys, anyway The Four Seasons had hit after hit. Seems to me that 1966 was one big Four Seasons concert, lol!

Now here's a real oldie but it's one of my personal favorites.

I didn't know we were going to get into the Swing era now. Nice!

For those who appreciate this kind of music, this song should sound familiar.

How divine it would be to ride in a hot air balloon over a moonlit lake.

Ohhhh, Nice one crow.

Ya know crow, I ran into Herbert Hoover,  he said "Now's the time to Buy".
So Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee, and Let's Have Another Piece of Pie!

Love the title. Where did songwriters come up with these names lol?

One of my fave jazz standards. What a voice this gal had.

Ya know crow, there was a time when Nancy Wilson was on television all the time, especially the Ed Sullivan Show. But Nancy also made the rounds. She was friends with Mike Douglas and would appear on his talk show at anytime. Merv Griffin and Johnny Carson were big fans too. 

She was so popular that Andy Williams threw his support behind, "The Nancy Wilson Show" - I think that was 1967. Rare for a black American to have their own show back in the day but you can see why. Nancy is easy on the ears and the eyes!


Now - how about one of the most famous jazz instrumentals?

For all I know, Nancy could've met the president too.

Great drumming in Take Five. That song proves that jazz is the epitome of cool.

Another Ray Charles song I love.
