Thin Lizzy 1979

I was a dishwasher and a cook at a Sheraton Inn when I was in high school (Raritan High, Hazlet). Thin Lizzy stayed there one night. I think it was ’79. In the band at the time was Scott Gorham, Gary Moore, Phil Lynott, Snowy White (or as he signed it Snow White). Snowy White wrote “chop one out” which I think is a drug reference. Gary Moore wrote “to the best dishwasher in Hazlet”,  I didn’t tell him I also cooked his meal. [click on image to enlarge]

Staple Singers-Let’s go home

Regardless of where you fall on the God scale, the early gospel of the Staple Singers is undeniably great. This slice of heaven is from the The BEST of the Vee-Jay years (2007)

Sticky Fingers, personalized

We got in a record collection a little while ago and in it was a trashed copy of Rolling Stones-Sticky Fingers that was drawn on. I dig it because it captures some great 1970’s stoned teenager art [click on image to enlarge]

Docdail-Aere Perennius

I know nothing about this band, I found it on a great compilation Tetes Lourdes-Francais Metal De Proto Le Super Rock Serie 1970 (2005-no label). I’m pretty sure this is originally from a 1969 single.

Roky Erickson-The Singing Grandfather

From what I’ve read this is from a collection of songs that were recorded at a Holiday Inn on a cheap tape recorder, just Roky and an acoustic guitar. I have it on a cd called Click Your Fingers Applauding the Play, I’ve also seen it on The Holiday Inn Tapes
