About this Episode

Ruby Andrews [00:20]
a side: "You Ole Boo Boo You"
b side: "Gotta Break Away"
Zodiac Records ZR-1020 1971
A pretty excellent slow burn single from 1971 on Chicago's Zodiac Records. Made it up to 47 on the R&B charts.

Ike & Tina Turner [05:43]
a side: "You Should'a Treated Me Right"
b side: "Sleepless"
Sue Records 765 1962
This rollicking single from Ike & Tina only made it to number 89 on the Hot 100. What gives?

The Okmoniks [13:01]
a side: "You Want What I Ain't Got/Little Bit More Hate/Locked in the Trunk of Your Ford Blues"
b side: "You Want What I Ain't Got/Little Bit More Hate/Locked in the Trunk of Your Ford Blues"
In+Fi 001 2002
Some excellent Tucson garage rock from the early aughties.

Rod Stewart [18:44]
a side: "You Wear It Well"
b side: "True Blue"
Mercury Records 7330 1972
A little bit of a Maggie May retread but not too shabby either. Made it to 13 on the US hot 100 in 1972. Pretty sweet Ron Woods rocker on the b-side.

Dwight Twilley Band [27:12]
a side: "You Were So Warm"
b side: "Sincerely"
Shelter Records SR-40450 1974
The second single from Twilley's Los Angeles sessions with Shelter Records. Sadly this one did not get any traction. Love the guitar bits on the b-side.

Johnny Burnette [32:21]
a side: "You're Sixteen"
b side: "I Beg Your Pardon"
Liberty Records F-5528 1960
This creepy watered-down outing by rockabilly artist Burnette reached number 8 on the Hot 100 in 1960.

The Thirteenth Floor Elevators [37:19]
a side: "You're Gonna Miss Me"
b side: "Tried to Hide"
International Artists Records 107-A 1966
This is the national release of their first Contact Records single from 1966. And yes, that mysterious sound you heard is an electric jug. Amazingly this made it to number 55 on the Hot 100, and in San Francisco it actually cracked the top 10.

The Impressions [42:05]
a side: "You've Been Cheatin'" 1965
b side: "Never Let Me Go" 1963
Collectables COL 3725

An MCA "Collectable" reissue featuring The Impressions 1965 single "You've Been Cheatin" which made it to number 33, and the b-side is from their 1962 album The Impressions.

Music behind the DJ: "Push the Button, Max!" by Henry Mancini
