ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER ACTIVITIES 2016 PT.4

Part of Vacations and Summer Activities is staying in a Hotel Room.

Be very cool if someone were listening to this in a  Hotel!

I grew up in Manhattan, and the was no Beach, so we went up on Tar Beach.

I've always wondered if that expression is used in other cities or is purely a New York thing!

Then there is the matter of choosing a Bathing Suit- a simple matter for me and men.

It's got an elastic band or drawstring,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER ACTIVITIES 2016 PT.3

Finally back with The Greatest Summer Series Known To Mankind, lol!

And I had to lose a week with technical difficulties!

I may have to extend Summer.

When I recorded this, I didn't realize it was 91 degrees outside, so I was closer to that opening Song than I realized!

These Summer Activities will involve Shipping Out…

ROCKOLLECTIONS:VOL2- COVERED BY THE BEATLES PT.2

I'll finish the album, With The Beatles, right away.

I still can't get over the fact that album was released on the day President Kennedy was assassinated!

Then I'll move on to what was the cause of much confusion and many differences over here in the…

ROCKOLLECTIONS:VOL2- COVERED BY THE BEATLES PT.1

SUMMER SERIES TEMPORARILY HALTED BY COMPUTER PROBLEMS, THIS IS FROM 2011

Here's a now-and-then series I started in February 2011, Covered By The Beatles.

As you should be aware, the Beatles put many older Rock & Roll songs, mainly from America, on their early albums and EP's.

So the simple idea is to play the Beatles Cover Version…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER ACTIVITIES 2016 PT.1

Making a few stops along the way in this ambitious and overrated Summer Series, this is the first Chapter of Summer Activities.

Starting with what we all look forward to- VACATION!

With the hot, sticky, sweaty, disgusting Heat and Humidity we’ve had lately, not going to work and sitting in front of air conditioning may be your simple goal.

But really no Activity is necessary, you can be lazy...it’s YOUR Vacation!

We Yanks…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER 2016- SONGS PT.2

Over the years I’ve played Summertime, that classic Gershwin tune from Porgy & Bess, by quite a number of Rockers.

Billy Stewart, Big Brother & Holding Company, Rick Nelson, and many others.

I found one that was a surprise.

And rather than tell you, I’ll let you guess what Group it is.

You have a legitimate shot at it, as they were very popular!

I had a sudden urge to play some Summer Songs from my favorite…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER 2016- SONGS PT.1

Doing Summer Shows, there are certain Songs that are expected.

I like the unexpected.

So I will do the unexpected by playing a few of the expected, lol!

Let’s all sing along!

After that, time to get a little more adventurous, and a Song each from the 60’s, 70's and 80’s.

It’s Summer Songs In The Summertime!

As I am doing the Most Ambitious Summer Series Ever Attempted, lol!

Enjoy, I’ll do the work!

Man, I…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER 2016- HEAT

Starting with a song that has nothing really to do with Summer or Hot, I declare my Poetic License!

Then it’s on to Heat.

Similar to Hot, but to me a subtle difference.

Three or four hours of Heat, and I am calling it a Heatwave, lol!

A Master Of The Obvious, Summer Is Here, and I’ll have a short look back and ahead regarding this Season.

Throughout this Series I’ll be playing Summer Songs you know, don’t know and…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SUMMER 2016- HOT

Alright look out, I have decided to do THE Summer Series to end all Summer Series!

Those who know me realize Summer is regarded as something I have to tolerate and get through to make it to Fall and  Winter, lol!

With that kind of affection, I’ll begin with a Song I used for a Summer Show 10 years ago- it was how I felt then and feel now.

Hot is the word to describe this annoying time of year, and Hot is what I will be…
