About this Episode

The New World Theatre Ochestra [00:22]
"After Hours Joint"
Honeymoon in Manhattan
Somerset P-3000 1958
An approximation of Gershwin, I suppose.

Elton John [04:37]
"Susie (Dramas)"
Honky Château
UNI Records 93135 1972
An approximation of The Band, I suppose.

Fred Burton [08:01]
"There's Going To Be A Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight"
Honky Tonk Percussion
Spin-O-Rama S-8 1958
Honky tonk piano with percussion... with stereo separation.

"Fingers" Mahoney [10:15]
"Bicycle Built for Two"
HonkyTonk Piano
Riviera Records R0050 1960
Honky tonk piano with percussion... in mono.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra [14:02]
"Hooked on Bach"
Hooked on Classics
RCA AYL1-5022 1981
See? Those High on Music people got nuthin' on the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This title single from this album reached number 10 on the Hot 100 in 1981.

Al Hirt [19:59]
"Holiday for Trumpet"
RCA Victor LSP-2446 1962
Oh right, as opposed to "Holiday for Strings".

Dirty Three [22:15]
Horse Stories
Touch & Go TG165 1996
So good. The third studio album from Aussies Warren Ellis, Mick Turner, and Jim White.

America [26:10]
"A Horse with No Name"
Warner Bros. Records BS2576 1971
Whoops... I guess Your Old Pal Will must've been a little sleepy when he filed this one. But the album cover does say AMERICA and then A Horse with No Name, so he put it into H.

Patti Smith [31:28]
"Gloria: In Excelsis Deo/Gloria (Version)"
Arista AB 4066 1975
One of the finest track one, side ones in rock and roll.

Isaac Hayes [37:20]
Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise ENS-1001 1969
How do you follow up a killer rendition Burt Bacharach's "Walk on By"? With this keller jam, of course.

Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen [47:39]
"Diggy Liggy Lo"
Hot Licks, Cold Steel & Truckers Favorites
Paramount Records PAS-6031 1972
A fantastic cover of the Jay Miller classic made popular by Doug Kershaw.

The Rolling Stones [49:31]
"19th Nervous Breakdown"
Hot Rocks 1964-1971
London Records 2PS 606/7 1971
Got Stones if you want it. This single made it to number 2 on the Hot 100 in 1966.

Eagles [53:29]
"New Kid in Town"
Hotel California
Asylum Records 7E-1084 1976
What, you thought I was going to play the title track? C'mon... no one needs to hear that song for at least another decade. Meanwhile, this song features Joe Walsh on Rhodes piano and Hammond organ and is still listenable.

Boiled in Lead [58:34]
"Go! Move! Shift (The Moving-On Song)"
Atomic Theory TTA 8687 1987
Some Celtic rocking from the Twin Cities, covering a song written by Ewan MacColl, father of Vinyl-O-Matic favorite Kristy MacColl.

Music behind the DJ: "Walk On By" by Les Brown and his Orchestra.
