Brothers and sisters, sad news/good news (as you want) ,
Yup, it’s time to relax a bit (before I kill someone ^_^)

But I always come back.

Beyond The Reef !

I think we all need a proper summer post here.
Alfred Aholo Apaka was born in Honolulu in 1919 and died suddenly in 1960. His stunning baritone and good looks earned him the title of 'The Golden Voice of Hawaii.'
He became one of Hawaii's best-known entertainers through his Decca and ABC records and his legacy continues to inspire other performers, including his son, Jeff Apaka.

Buster Brown !

A Georgia native, Buster Brown ((1911-1976)) was a harmonica player who never made a recording until his late forties when he arrived in New York City in 1959 to record his one and only true hit, the classic Fanny Mae. He had a number of smaller hits in the early 60s before sinking into obscurity.

Have a good weekend !

The Super Stocks !

The Super Stocks were one of the better and more interesting studio creations of producer-composer Gary Usher.
Usher assembled a core of regular players, including Glen Campbell, Richie Podolor, and Paul Johnson on guitars; Hal Blaine on drums; and Steve Douglas on sax.
He handled some of the early vocals himself, with Chuck Girard, Ritchie Burns, and Joe Kelly also singing; and Girard eventually took over most of the vocal chores.
The Super Stocks were among Usher's more fondly remembered surf "bands" of this period, and one of the more ubiquitous, with three complete LPs to their credit as well as appearances on two popular compilation albums.

Rama Lama Ding Dong !

Back on the tracks.
Pain pain pain in my heart, thanks thanks thanks for your comments, ouch ouch ouch for that poor guy who met my fronthead Saturday night (he looked for it)
Guys, I owe you one.
The name of the group we’re about to hear was originally The Essos, after gas station Esso, but was changed to match the then-new Ford automobile, the Edsel.
The group consisted of lead vocalist George Jones Jr., James Reynolds, Marshall Sewell, Harry Greene, and Larry Greene.Today, the group is known almost exclusively for their song, "Rama Lama Ding Dong". The song was recorded in 1957 and released, under the errant title "Lama Rama Ding Dong", in 1958.
The song did not become popular until 1961, after a disc jockey in New York City began to play it as a segue from The Marcels doo-wop version of "Blue Moon."
Ironically, the group had broken up by the time the song became a hit in 1961.

Home I'll Never Be

We’re back.
Ah shit, it was tough.
David passed away soon after I wrote the last post and was buried last Friday.
Friday’s a funeral and Saturday’s a bride.
Well, what can I say. We all read your comments, and let me tell you how strange and beautiful it was.
I just want to say how grateful I am to you all. Nobody ever did that to me before. Never.
So, fuck yeah,once again, THANKS for all your comments and emails. Love you guys.
You all guess that it’s not the first time I’m going to a funeral, but this one was hard.
I’m thinkin’ of his parents, his wife, his bro and all his friends (his tribe I might say).
We’re family. One is missing, that’s all.
Thank you la blogosphere, thank you Mrs Frost.

So, all stand and raise your glass to the best cousin/bro/mate ever.

Here’s a lil mix to tell him goodbye (don’t be afraid of that punk-rock french song ‘Cayenne’, it was his fav and mine when we were teens) and my cover of St James, pass me the bottle will ya.
