Classic Rock Bottom

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CALL ME MISTER PT.6

Playing Rock & Roll Mister Songs through the years.
Let's do some British, beginning with the Greatest Group That Ever Existed!
Naturally after that, some American Music is called for.
And I will be playing the third different song titled Mr. Blue in this episode- probably the most unknown, possibly the most exquisite.
That's it in a nutshell.
Now somebody get me the hell out of this damn nutshell, lol!
One more week and I conclude this Theme.

RJ,
There you and Jon go again...two very diverse people, lol!
I guess the Beatles and Kinks will always be staples.
Chad and Jeremy's The Emancipation Of Mr. X is just one song where they went was called Progressive back then.
I have to play you an unbelievably fantastic song they did about dying called Rest In Peace, from another album named Of Cabbages & Kings in 1967.
You will discover despite being the corniest named band in the history of the world they were putting out some wonderful music.
It'll change your opinion of them immediately, as The Emancipation Of Mr. X may have begun.
I thought Laura Nyro would get the Golden Pell!
Although Mr. Skin by Spirit is a terrific song!
But you settled on Mr. Soul by The Buffalo Springfield, which I think  Iplayed last summer, lol!
This is funny..."I must pick up some BS".
Well if you mean REAL BS, by all means do.
If you mean the other, there is an awful lot of it around, easy topick up, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,
Mike

Jon,
Sidney is long past the time he'll mess me up...if ever, lol!
I'm not sure this is better than the last chapter, but it is different- they were intended that way.
But it does rock more.
See, there I am doing my educational service to the listeners by playing that Chad & Jeremy song from an album that deserved much more attention than it got, called The Ark.
Yeah, that ain't no surfer music, lol!
Spelling class again- it's Laura Nyro, she was great and another artist you should investigate.
You knew exactly where I was going.with Mr Big Stuff because you would have gone there too, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing, and this is high praise from you- A fine, fine show,
Mike

I liked the previous part better than the British section of this part, but it kicked in really nicely with the American section.  The Beatles and The Kinks in the first section, two staples for you.  I did like the title of the song by Chad and Jeremy (The Emancipation Of Mr. X).  That me be the coolest song title by the corniest named band in the history of the world.

Laura Nyro was okay, and Jean Knight's song was the only one in both parts that I recognized.

The Golden Pell was a tough choice.  Mr. Skin by Spirit was a really nice song, but I'm going with Mr. Soul by The Buffalo Springfield.  That's on cool song.  I must pick up some BS.

You can't mock Sidney! He'll mess you up!

Now THIS is better than the last show (sorry!). Rock! Never heard that Chad & Jeremy song before, but it is swell. With a name like "Chad & Jeremy" you would expect surfer music. This ain't no surfer music!

Laura Nero was a cool song as well.

Yeah, don't go there. I know exactly where you were going. Mr Big Stuff? Yeah, ok.

A fine, fine show.
