Jo Stafford died at age 90 last wednesday
Jo Stafford, born Jo Elizabeth Stafford 1917_november_12, was an American singer of traditional pop music and jazz standards whose career spanned the late 1930s through the early 1960s. Stafford is greatly admired for the purity of her voice and was considered one of the most versatile vocalists of the era. She was also viewed as a pioneer of modern musical parody, having won a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album in 1961 (with husband Paul Weston) for their album Jonathan and Darlene Edwards in Paris.
In my humble opinion it is a must to check her biography at Wikipedia.
I gather you can get within a few days everywhere Jo Staffords greatest hits compilations so I wanna stick with Jonathan & Darlene Edwards - Greatest Hits vol1 just to give you an idea how this great singer could also sing 'out of key', so difficult when you have such a perfect voice and ear....
I've seen some informative reviews.
This collection of fourteen Jonathan and Darlene Edwards tracks is, to say the least, hilarious. From beginning to end you'll laugh so hard your chest will hurt and you'll get a headache. Honestly, you may have to stop the CD and catch your breath a couple of times.
The opening track, ''I Love Paris,'' will have you on the floor, especially if you've never heard Jonathan and Darlene's work before. Darlene warbles her affection for Paris so far off-key that France should throw her to the guillotine, and Jonathan goes off on his own tangents while Darlene attempts to sing, doing a speedy chorus of ''Jingle Bells'' when she comes to the line ''I love Paris in the winter.'' Other songs are equally as funny. Jonathan mangles ''Dizzy Fingers,'' and Darlene's train imitations on ''Alabamy Bound'' will leave you in stitches. The couple's version of ''Stayin' Alive'' has to be heard to be believed.
If you've ever suffered through a bad lounge act in real life, Jonathan and Darlene's work will appeal to you, and if you haven't you can experience the pleasure in the comfort of your own home, only this way you can laugh with them, not at them.
Two extremely talented performers: singer, Jo Stafford and her husband/pianist/arranger/conductor, Paul Weston evidentally used to entertain at parties by performing as the UNtalented Jonathan and Darlene Edwards. Their "act" became so popular that recordings had to be made. Everyone knows that there are 8 notes in a scale from Do up again to Do. Not for Darlene. I have a feeling there are 23 notes in her scale and not many of them sound 'right' to normal ears. And her sense of rhythm? Whoa!Check also Darlene & Jonathan Edwards greatest hits review.
Jonathan, of course, is right there next to her pumping away at his piano adding more notes & flourishes than the composer actually wrote. Some of the songs on this hysterical album were unknown to me ("You're Blase") and others are famous, such as Cole Porter's "I Love Paris." Every song is done in a version you'll never hear anywhere else....or maybe, if you're really unlucky you will hear your own Darlene and Jonathan whenever friends of yours sit down to entertain you. Perhaps you could give those friends a copy of this album and they'll never play and sing again. This very, very funny CD also comes with a clever interview featuring the Edwards couple, themselves. Here is an example: when asked about recording "Stayin' Alive," Darlene comments, "...I was just trying to get through that song. I didn't really have enough time to let my vocal talents come through because there were an awful lot of words."
03-Take The 'A' Train
07-I Am Woman
08-Don't Get Around Much Anymore
09-The Last Time I Saw Paris
11-Autumn In New York
12-Be My Little Baby Bumble Bee
13-April In Paris
Did you notice the two right hands on the sleeve ???
To complete this article I urge you to read a 2 page interview with 'Jonathan and Darlene' published Los Angeles Magazine © December 1982.

Today 1948 Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) born
02-On The Road To Find Out
03-Where do the Children Play
05-Miles from Nowhere
07-Father and Son
08-Hard Headed Woman
It was hard to decide what album to play. At first I did take Teaser and the firecat with the wonderful songs How can I tell you (I always dedicated this to my ex-wife) and Morning has broken. But I decided to pick an unofficial live recording from the same year 1971. Simply because of the intreging sleeve someone made : after all, Cat Stevens became Muslim in 1977.

Today 1939 Dion DiMucci was born
From Wikipedia :
In early 1957 he auditioned for Bob and Gene Schwartz, who had just formed Mohawk Records. They recorded him with a vocal group, The Timberlanes, and released a single "The Chosen Few", arranged by Hugo Montenegro, which became a minor regional hit.
Schwartz also signed up Dion's friends, The Belmonts, named after nearby Belmont Avenue. Their breakthrough together came in early 1958, when "I Wonder Why" made #22 on the national US charts, followed up with "No One Knows" and "Don’t Pity Me" which were also chart hits.
This success won Dion and the Belmonts a place on the "Winter Dance Party" tour with Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. On February 2, 1959, after playing in Clear Lake, Iowa, Dion decided that he could not afford the $36 cost of a flight to the next venue. The plane crashed, and Holly and the other stars were killed.
By the end of 1960 Dion had recorded and released his first solo album. I give you

Today 1947 Arlo Guthrie was born
From Wikipedia :
Arlo Guthrie's most famous work is Alice's Restaurant Massacree, a talking blues song that lasts for 18 minutes (in its original recorded version; Guthrie has been known to spin the story out to forty-five minutes in concert). Guthrie has pointed out that this was also the exact length of one of the famous gaps in Richard Nixon's Watergate tapes. The Alice in the song is Alice Brock, who now runs an art gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
The song, a bitingly satirical protest against the Vietnam War draft, is based on a true incident. In the song, Guthrie is called up for a draft examination, and rejected as unfit for military service as a result of a criminal record — consisting in its entirety of a single arrest, court appearance, fine and clean-up order for littering and creating a public nuisance. On the DVD commentary for the film, Guthrie states that the events as presented in the song are true to real-life occurrences.
For a short period of time after its release in 1967, "Alice's Restaurant" was in frequent rotation on nearly every college and counter-culture radio station in the country. Indeed, it became a symbol of the late '60s and for many it defined an attitude and lifestyle that were lived out across the country in the ensuing years. Many stations across the States have made playing "Alice's Restaurant" on Thanksgiving Day a tradition.
A 1969 film, directed and co-written by Arthur Penn, was based on the story. In addition to acting in this film, also called Alice's Restaurant, Guthrie has had minor roles in several movies and television series. Guthrie's memorable appearance at the 1969 Woodstock Festival was documented in the Michael Wadleigh film Woodstock.
02-Chilling Of The Evening
03-Ring Around A Rosy Rag
04-Now And Then
05-I'm Going Home
06-The Motocycle Song
07-Highway In The Wind
I was dubbing what to post. A live concert with Alice's restaurant, the movie soundtrack maybe. Both contain this song in different versions.
But I decided to offer you just the 1967 original album with this 'addictive' song.
So join me in the comments to the mid-sixties....

Quicksilver Messenger Service - Shady grove
03-Three Or Four Feet From Home
08-Words Can't Say
09-Edward, The Mad Shirt Grinder
Lindsay Planer from All Music Guide reviews :
The third long-player from San Francisco psychedelic icons Quicksilver Messenger Service (QMS) is a direct contrast from their previous discs. Shady Grove (1969) is comprised mostly of shorter and self-contained pieces as opposed to the long and extended jams that were so prevalent on their self-titled debut (1967) and Happy Trails (1968). Ironically, the one stretched-out instrumental is courtesy of their latest acquisition — Brit recording session guru Nicky Hopkins (keyboards). Another possible reason for the shift in style as well as personnel is the conspicuous absence of Gary Duncan (guitar) — who is rumored to have been a "guest" of Bay Area law enforcement at the time. The band incorporate a number of different styles on the album. Kicking off the disc is an up-tempo rocking version of the traditional Appalachian folk song "Shady Grove." The QMS reading is highlighted by John Cipollina's trademark fluid fretwork and a familiar "Bo Diddley" backbeat — reminiscent of both "Who Do You Love" and "Mona" from the live ensemble LP Happy Trails. The slow and dark "Flute Song" is a trippy minor chord masterpiece that is augmented by the shimmering effect of Hopkins' airy piano lines which mingle throughout the light orchestration. Additionally, QMS try their hand at the same country & western-flavored sound that was making the rounds with their San Fran contemporaries the Jefferson Airplane ("The Farm") and the Grateful Dead ("Dire Wolf"). However, the down-home cowboy waltz "Word's Can't Say" never gets out of the stable, unfortunately. This somewhat uneven effort would sadly foreshadow QMS's journey from psychedelia and into a much more pop-oriented sound on their follow-up, Just for Love (1970). However, enthusiasts of those albums will find much more to revisit on Shady Grove than those who favored the first two records.
Quicksilver Messenger Service - Shady grove (title song)
The video playing along with the audio is, uh, oh, some old psychedelic thing, a sub genre from a band probably long forgotten, they were called Sgt. Marine or something like that, I think, one of the songs of theirs that got FM radio airplay was about smoking beatles or roaches or peppers or something like that to get high...
LOL ! Well, check the comments for the complete audio......

Aretha Franklin - Amazing Grace Live 1972
I hope I can please her today with 110 minutes Aretha singing live gospel songs :
02-Precious Lord, Take my Hand_You've Got a Friend
04-Give Yourself to Jesus
05-How I Got Over
06-What a Friend We Have in Jesus
09-Climbing Higher Mountains
10-Remarks by Rev CL Franklin
11-God will Take Care of You
13-You'll Never Walk Alone
14-Never Grow Old
Ron Wynn from All Music Guide wrote about this album.
Aretha Franklin disproved the notion that once you leave the church, you can't go back. She returned in triumph on this 1972 double album, making what might be her greatest release ever in any style. Her voice was chilling, making it seem as if God and the angels were conducting a service alongside Franklin, Rev. James Cleveland, the Southern California Community Choir, and everyone else in attendance. Her versions of How I Got Over and You've Got a Friend are legendary.
Check the comments to see if Marie Jose has a good musical taste....
