b side: "Goody Two Shoes"
Epic Records 34-00367 1982
But Will, you played "Generals and Majors" twice last time! I know but one was stereo and one was mono. This one is stereo on both sides. Plus, I mean c'mon... It's no "Stand and Deliver".

a side: Pixies "Gouge Away"
b side: Sex Clark Five/When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water "Jeepster/I Got the Music in Me"
The Bob Magazine Issue No. 38 1990
Recorded live on August 10, 1989 at Cabaret Metro, Chicago, in case you Pixies folks are wondering. Also fuck yeah, Dave Ricks \m/

Frankie Valli [mm:ss]
a side: "Grease"
b side: "Grease (Instrumental)"
RSO Records RS 897 1978
Kinda sounds like a BeeGee number, don't it? Well duh, it's a Barry Gibb tune. Hope you busted out your air sax for the b-side.

The Jerms [mm:ss]
a side: "Green Door (regular version)"
b side: "Green Door (time edited version)"

Kinda like "Baby Elephant Walk" meets Steve Miller Band?

Dick Hyman [mm:ss]
a side: "Green Onions"
b side: "Aquarius"
Command Records 45-4129 1969
Wowzers. Which flavor do you prefer your futuristic late-60s to be?

The Mindbenders [mm:ss]

Despite the a-side being based on Clementi's Sonatina in G, the b-side is way groovier.

Music behind the DJ: "Dracula 1972 A.D." by Michael Vicks. Why? Because one of the songs in this episode is tangentially related to Caroline Munro!
