And now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

Brian Eno [00:25]
a side: "Seven Deadly Finns"
b side: "Later On"
Island Records WIP.6178 1974
A wonderful and goofy single, with Mr. Fripp joining Mr. Eno on the flipside.

Lancelot Link and the Evolution Revolution [08:33]
a side: "Sha-La Love You (stereo)"
b side: "Sha-La Love You (mono)"
ABC Records 11278 1971
Evidently this single was originally intended for The Grass Roots, but instead ended up being used by Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.

The Five Du-Tones [14:30]
a side: "Shake A Tail Feather"
b side: "Divorce Court"
One-derful! 2082 1963
Original flavor tail feathers. Co-penned by the late great Andre Williams.

James & Bobby Purify [19:48]
a side: "Shake a Tail Feather"
b side: "Goodness Gracious"
Bell Records BELL 669 1967
And the one that reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Slim Harpo [24:59]
a side: "Shake Your Hips"
b side: "Midnight Blues"
Excello Records 45-2278 1965
Everybody's doin' it! You don't need to exile yourself to Main Street to enjoy this original.

a side: "Shakin' All Over"
b side: "Till We Kissed"
Scepter Records S 1295 1965
Originally written and recorded by Johnny Kidd & the Pirates in 1960, brought to this side of the Atlantic by these Canucks. Fun fact: The Guess Who were a nom de consumerisme trying to cash in on The Beatles craze. They were in fact called Chad Allan & The Expressions, but Guess Who stuck.

Bobby Freeman [35:32]
a side: "Shame on You Miss Johnson"
b side: "Need Your Love"
Josie 45-844 1958

Dr. Hook [40:00]
a side: "Sharing the Night Together"
b side: "You Make My Pants Want to Get Up and Dance"
Capitol Records 4621 1978
Sliding into the Regal Beagle booth like... Soooo much facial hair in this band. And that b-side.... do ya like to boogé? Like many of Dr. Hook's hooks, lyrics by Shel Sivlerstein.

Music behind the DJ: "Mood Indigo" by Charles Mingus

"Lancelot Link, Secre Chimp" Intro (1971)
