About this Episode

The Troggs
a side: "I Can't Control Myself"
b side: "Gonna Make You"
ATCO Records 45-6444 1966
Low slacks?! Good heavens!

Silver Apples a side: "I Don't Know"
One Cut Kill b side: "White Russian/Black Heart"
Gifted Children Records GCV07-001 2007
Picked this up at a Silver Apples show at Cafe du Nord in 2007 (obvs) which also happened to be my first exposure to Thee Oh Sees live. Hooo boy, that was a night.

Neil Sedaka
a side: "I Go Ape"
b side: "Moon of Gold"
RCA Victor 47-7473 1959
Of course this is one of my go-to's when spinning live.

Etta James
a side: "I Got You"
b side: "I Worship the Ground You Walk On"
Cadet 5606 1968
Huh, you'd think I'd have the Sonny & Cher versions of this, but this super funky version will do just fine indeed. Killer b-side as well.

The Miracles
a side: "I Gotta Dance to Keep from Cryin'"
b side: "Such Is Love, Such Is Life"
TAMLA T-54089 1963
Certainly one of my most favorite singles ever. My toe is tapping just thinking about it.

a side: "I Know There's Something Going On"
b side: "Threnody"
Atlantic Records 7-89984 1982
Yes, by the same man who brought us middling "Since You've Been Gone", Rainbow's meh hit single. And hey produced and drummed by the illustrious Phil Collins! But you know I will never speak ill of Anni-Frid.

Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
a side: "I Love Rock 'n Roll"
b side: "You Don't Know What You've Got"
Boardwalk NB7-11-135
The short lived Boardwalk Records was Neil Bogart's follow up to Casablanca Records. And again, awesome b-side.

Outer Limit Recordings a side: "I Need My T.V."
The Sweethearts b side: "Burnin Through the Night"
Olde English Spelling Bee OESB-710
I think this arrived with a couple of R. Stevie Moore reissues.

Music behind the DJ: "The Name of the Game" as performed by Richard Clayderman.
