    Most people forget what a bad-a$$ guitar player Ike Turner was. But not Ellroy!

    Demon, the only rules here are the Forum ones. Thanks for participating. I'm trying to get more into electronic music via bands like Sylvan Esso. It helps me to have a pretty girl and a good melody. ;)

    BobRob, those are all great!

    And Bill Frisell sounds like the spiritual child of the late Ted Greene. Thanks for posting RomanS.

    How about some rock-n-roll to cleanse the palette? Short, sharp and a bit shocking might be a nice change.

    "Cream Dream"....Preston Love with the Johnny Otis band featuring Shuggie Otis on guitar.

    That's a cool tune Chez-released in 1969 when Shuggie was 14. But damn if it doesn't remind me of Harlem Nocturne, especially the Viscounts version from 1966. Johnny Otis would have known all about it since he recorded Nocturne with his band.

    Insert your favorite Mike Hammer quote here. :)

    Love it! Written by King Curtis but they do it justice. Don't you just love the Hi Records sound?...close mic'ed, intimate...another good example being all those early Al Green songs. Imo Willie Mitchell carved out a rather unique sound with his production. And the Hi Records house band consisting of the Hodges Brothers and drummer Howard Grimes helped a bit too!

    Here's a thing of beauty from Curtis Mayfield.

    Can't believe nobody has posted this one yet... IMO the best old-school surf tune:



    And a very good new-school one:

    The best modern surf instrumental. Ignore the band name- they're from Croatia:

    I always loved this version. It builds and builds.

    From the 24 Nights CD:



    From the 24 Nights Video:



    Interestingly, two VERY different performances. Note the difference in tone on the opening section between the two versions. Also, never realized EC's neck on this guitar had such nice flame until I watched the video. And the drumming. So tight. God bless you Steve Ferrone. Blasphemy, but I enjoy his grooves more than Gadd's.

    BobRob, you're putting some great jams up! Like Little Jimmy Dickens before him in the previous decade, Ernest put together one hot country band by the mid 60's.

    Ndcaster, I'm familiar with that Cropper/Staples/King album. My fav cut is Tupelo.

    Nattaruk-Diamond Head was a welcome surprise. I've been a fan of Phil because of his work in Roxy.

    And there's nothing like a band of Luchadors playing surf music. Eddie Angel played some great guitar with Ronnie Dawson too. And thanks for Jeff's Boogie Suave Eddie.

    Another great gone too soon-Sean Costello

    Think I've still got the 45 stashed away somewhere.
