Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, November 05, 2007


OK, we have the greatest Guests on EARTH!

We love all of the comments from our Matt! post on Friday.

The weekend was fantastic, and we will tell you all about it tomorrow with pictures...

no promises on the pictures, many were taken of the two of us by the two of us (You know, holding the camera out arms length and snapping!) LOL

But one of his friends took a couple of shots...but that is part of the story so...

Pretty tired tonight...

Get involved with the BLOGBLAST FOR PEACE this Wednesday.

As most of you already know, it is the brainchild of our good friend Mimi.

Use the link above to get your Peace Globe.

If you need help, Sanni has offered to do Peace Globe for free...

And you can always send us a email and we will help out.

First three off of the i-Tunes shuffle this evening...

1) "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" (Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio): From the Together album, released by MotownRecords in 1969. It was the second and final duets studio album combining DIANA ROSS & THE SUPREMES and THE TEMPTATIONS into an eight-person Motown act.

Together was released on the same day (September 23, 1969) as Puzzle People, a regular TEMPTATIONS album showcasing the group's then-current psychedelic soul sound.
* Diana Ross – vocals
* Mary Wilson – vocals
* Cindy Birdsong – vocals
* Dennis Edwards – vocals
* Eddie Kendricks – vocals
* Paul Williams – vocals
* Melvin Franklin – vocals
* Otis Williams – vocals
* Various Los Angeles area session musicians – instrumentation


"Peaches en Regalia" (Frank Zappa): This is the first piece on Frank Zappa's 1969 recording, Hot Rats. Hot Rats was a solo recording produced by Zappa without the Mothers. As with much of Zappa's music, there is a slew of instrumentation in this piece from the regular guitar, bass and drums to saxophones, clarinets, an octave bass guitar, flute and auxiliary percussion played by Zappa himself.
* Frank Zappa – Guitar, percussion, octave bass
* Ian Underwood – organ, clarinet, flute, piano, saxophone
* Shuggie Otis – bass on "Peaches en Regalia"
* Ron Selico – drums on "Peaches en Regalia"
* Lowell George - guitar (uncredited)

3) "Whipping Post" (Greg Allman):From the debut Allman Brothers Band album. Later recreated in it's 22:00+ minute rendition on Live At The Fillmore East album. Duane and Dickie trade guitar licks throughout.
* Duane Allman: slide guitar and lead guitar
* Gregg Allman: vocals, organ
* Dickey Betts: lead guitar,
* Berry Oakley: bass guitar, backing vocals
* Butch Trucks: drums
* Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson: drums, congas

Well folks...Lifelogger is not allowing us to upload this evening. We will try in the morning. Zappa was already uploaded, so we got that one there.

    Glad you had a good visit with Matt.

  4. Liz Hill Says:

  10. Twyla Says:
  11. I've been very slack on visiting everyone's blogs lately. :-(
    But I'm glad you had a great weekend.

  12. SONGBIRD: TY my friend...

    TRAVIS: That is one of my favorite songs...not just by Zappa...favorite of all...

    TURNBABY: tomorrow you shall see...sorry lifelogger would not let me post...

    MATT-MAN: Thanks my friend

    KATHERINE: Certainly did and just picked them up

    TWYLA: We all go through up and downs of blog worries

  13. Glad you had fun! My trip was awesome, the migraine the drive gave me not so much. Gave myself permission to not go near work, my blog, or even my computer Fri-Sun. Look for my review tomorrow!

  14. There is something about fathers and sons that is special...

    Glad you enjoyed it!

  15. Mimi Lenox Says:
  16. Can't wait to see the pics, Bond. I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend with your son.

  17. Ralph Says:
  18. Do enjoy the Allman Brothers. Whipping Post is great, but my favorite of theirs (since I first heard Idlewild South in 1972)is the incomparable instrumental 'In Memory of Elisabeth Reed' which had so many great sounds: rock, latin, jazz...

    Thanx for the Zappa piece. Sadly, I have to admit, I'd never heard Frank in general and this is nice. I love a jazzy wall of sound, so to speak. Didn't know about Lowell George here, but I loved Little Feat way back when (including Hi Roller, Oh Atlanta, etc.)

  19. STARR: So sorry 'bout the migraine and good idea with staying away from 'puter...I am anxiously awaiting...

    BUD: I understand the father/daughter bond is also special, but in a different way

    MIMI: Only a couple of more hours! LOL

    RALPH: Very cool cool that I grabbed Elizabeth since I had already uploaded it ...
    Frank has many many sides to him...we may have to explore soon in a Tutelage ...

  20. RW Says:
  21. Thanks for the Zappa tune Vin...Cant wait to see the photos!

  22. Waiting for great stories. Welcome home and thanks for the Zappa. Great way to start the day.
