Vocal Hit Sounds


Yet another groovy Capitol comp.

Wish List


Ol' Mondo is well past the 500,000-visitor mark, and with so many folks coming here, certainly at least one of you has one of these. I've shared a ton of music with you, filled requests, and re-upped records; now's your chance to return the favor. If you've got one of these bad boys (or anything else along these lines you'd like to share), please put a link in the comments.

A Star Fell Down on Indiana


A star fell down on Indiana
Just like it did in the beginning of time
We all turned out to see what happened
Some of us laughed
Some of us cried
And together we held onto each other's hands
Until the last of us had died

Steve Feldman


More obscure singer/songwriter stuff on the Evolution label. BTW, I'm being peppered with requests for re-ups, and I won't be performing that function anymore. So grab 'em while the links are still alive.

Breathe


Do you feel a certain pressure at night
Like something big pushing down on you
What do you think that it could be
Is it just this old wandering Jew
Oh I whisper in your ear
All the words you long to hear

Stations of the Elevated


I wish there were some crazy cure
But all I can offer are these words
Write it all down, every detail
'Cause it will fly away like birds

The Rubber Band


Definitely a strange one. Michael Lloyd put together this Hendrix tribute, adding lush strings and horns. Tough to categorize, which makes it that much more fun to listen to. More of the Rubber Band can be found here.

Pete Jolly


Another fine album (with bonus cuts) by Mr. Jolly, by request.

Higgledy Piggledy


The world it is a frightening place
Gettin' scarier by the second
Hate is blown' up all around
More than anyone could have reckoned
Who can understand it, yeah
Don't wanna participate
Rather live in my tiny bubble of love
Than to live in a world of hate

The Sound Symposium


Arranger Larry Wilcox adds light classical touches to create music that could best be termed very easy listening.

Single Room Furnished


Extremely rare exploito soundtrack that I've gone to some trouble to acquire. BTW, I've been getting scads of re-up requests lately. Unless you plan to contribute either monetarily or with fulfilling one of the albums from my wish list below, I won't be doing any further re-ups.

Herbie Flowers


Solo record by Herbie Flowers, the dude responsible for the iconic "Walk on the Wild Side" bass line, backing up Elton John and countless sessions.

Gary S. Paxton


As promised, here's one of my occasional posts. This one is dedicated to the memory of Gary S. Paxton, who will forever be terminally weird but goodly right.

Pretty amazing record from virtually unknown singer/songwriter/arranger.

Witness


The key to life
Or so I've found
Is being wide awake and at the ready
Pulling your head
Out of your ass
So your vision's clear
And your hands are steady

Looking for this band's other album, "Off On a 20th Century Cycle." C'mon, someone out there has this.
