Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, December 27, 2006

There will be no names in lights today...

Honorable mention goes to:


(he is the one you all forgot!)
THE RED ROOSTER (False Start & Dialogue)
(actually it is two separate tracks)

The album was recorded in 1970 in London, during Howlin's European Tour. The album was recorded in a week and also featured on other songs: the great Klaus Voorman, John Simon, Phil Upchurch, Joe Miller, Jordan Sandke and Dennis Lansing. Additionally there is a musician credited as "Richie" on drums on the song "I Ain't Superstitious". The real identity of this drummer is none other then Ringo Starr.
The "False Start and Dialogue" is a real treat, as Clapton and Winwood try and convince Howlin' to play with them on "THE RED ROOSTER", while he is giving instructions on how to begin the song..including the great line..."See, he drops in when you say...BOOOOM!" In the end, Howlin' won the discussion as he is not playing on the complete recording of the song heard following the discussion.
One of the final highlights of a wonderful career, Mr Burnett left us on January 10, 1975 in Hines, Illinois at the age of 66.
I hope you enjoyed this piece of true brilliance. THE COUCH has to say it liked the fact that the answer was not submitted within five minutes of the song posting as has been the case in the past, but we will try and find a better choice for next week.

Hello and welcome back...

Hope your holiday was special and filled with love and smiles and friends and family.
Special WORDLESS WEDNESDAY NAME THAT TUNE this week in a couple of ways.

To begin, to me this is one of the classic recordings of my life..AND I have never mentioned it before. I am hopeful that those of you who have never heard it will appreciate the significance...

And secondly, because it is a special recording it is a bit more precise.

This is a specific recording.
You need to name the song.
Name all of the people who played on this particular recording.
Name the album.

Get it right, and get your name in lights...

Tomorrow, we will tell you all about the trip to Florida...

St. J - P.B.U.A.B.W.A.B

Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.

    ANOTHER: Glad you enjoyed your time on THE COUCH

    SUEANN: um no one won... Do they get their name in lights for witty banter?

  46. Bond;

    I think the team of Double D's is appropiate!

    Umm, that didn't come out right...


    It was myself and Damm. Hmmpf, I'm going to take that personally.

  47. Anndi Says:

    Hey duck.. aren't you Flying south for the winter?...

    No wins for partial answers... check the rule book... Why does the Canadian judge keep having to say this?

  49. DIANA: I thought she was referring to the verbal sparring Anndi and the Damm Duck were having...
    Well nly one name would be on top and the other would be second... them the rules

    Hope Damm is careful of those hunters...
