claudine

 “In 1980, Mick Jagger wrote a song about Spider Sabich‘s death that was intended to be on the Rolling Stones‘ album Emotional Rescue“. The song, titled Claudine“, carried lyrics that painted a graphic picture of some of the more salacious aspects of the affair and killing. However, it was deemed too controversial and was removed, although it was included on several bootleg Rolling Stones albums. In November 2011, the track Claudinewas released on the Rolling Stones’ deluxe reissue of their album Some Girls“.” Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudine_Longet#In_music + see also http://www.showbiz411.com/2011/10/20/rolling-stones-finally-releasing-song-about-claudine-longet and https://uzine.wordpress.com/tag/longetclaudine/

    bobby boyd

    Ladies & gentlemen, the much overrated Bobby Boyd, as reissued by the otherwise excellent Vadim. And I’m not dissin’ that wonderful label here, nor the mighty Lafayette Afro Rock Band who would evolve out of the Bobby Boyd Congress … I’m just saying that, bar a handful of tracks, these two rare hence overhyped Bobby Boyd albums are actually quite average bar a few highlights:
    1971: http://www.vadimmusic.com/fiche.php?id=458
    1976: http://www.vadimmusic.com/fiche.php?id=473
    Even so, “Straight ahead” by Bobby Boyd Congress (1971) is a funk monster featuring Diana Olverton, Frank Abel, Bobby Boyd, Jerry Joe Beatty, Ronnie Buttacavoli, Arthur Grayson Young, Lawrence Jones, Laffeyette Hudson and Perry Smith, and their “Dig deep in your soul” is cool too. “Happy hooker” (1976) was written by Harvey Fuqua for the Nite-Liters in 1973 with Xaviera Hollander‘s 1971 bestseller in mind, I’m sure, while the album also sports a a fine Tim Hardin cover with How can we hang on to a dream(1976).

    beefheart’s dust sucker of a bat chain puller

    = 1980 French tv (“Chorus”) … 2012-02-22: Vaulternative / Zappa records have finally released the original 1976 “Bat Chain Puller” album by Captain Beefheart. Officially. It’s outrageously expensive but it sounds much, much better than the unofficial “Dust Sucker” release by the Ozit leeches, said to contain the 1976 recordings as well, well … The title track’s rhythm is said to be based on the sound of Don Van Vliet’s Volvo car’s windscreen wipers. And the blues, of course. Webcore, webcore.
