Some Toe Tapping Music

USSR Xray Vinyl

“Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays.”

Saturday Matinee – Vinyl Throw, Blackboard Jungle, Groovie Movie, & Hellzapoppin’

Even though it looks like a hoax, it makes me sad – no respect.

Yeah Daddio, Blackboard Jungle, 1955. Not much has changed since then, and they busted 78s in that movie, too. On the other hand, it introduced Bill Haley & The Comets, redefined them from rockabilly into rock and roll.

“Groovie Movie” short from 1944 – How to Jitterbug. Pay attention – there’s some hot stuff there, but nothing beats the Slim Slam Allstars.

Slim Galliard (piano, guitar) and Slam Stewart (bass) from the 1941 movie Hellzapoppin’. Killer stuff, that. Yeah, we posted it before, but so what. It’s great, especially because the clip begins with a tribute to jazz that was still popular just a few years prior.

Have a great weekend, folks, and tell your mom Bunk said Happy Mothers Day.

STAX Stay In School

Stay in School, Don’t Be a Dropout (1967) was not a commercial release and less than 10,000 copies are known to exist in its original vinyl format.

Guess what’s in Bunk’s old vinyl collection!

This is a DJ album, distributed to R&B/Soul radio stations in urban areas. It’s got no lead-in tracks, meaning that the DJ had to pick what announcement or song he wanted to play and place the needle by hand. Stax/Volt was clever, in that the tracks of songs they were selling were preceded by public service announcements by the artists themselves.

“Hi, this is the big O, Otis Redding.
I was just standing here thinking about you,
Thought I’d write a song about you,
And dedicate it to you.
Take a listen.”

More info on this nice collectible here. Click to enlarge, check out the playlist, and read the commendation from Vice President Hubert Humphrey. There’s some great stuff on this album.
