Super Seventies Saturday #5 - 'Magic' by Pilot that green soothsayer from the lily-pads of Sesame Street was known to utter from time to time...hi-ho...

today's 'S-cubed' (Super Seventies Saturday...three S's....) pick is 'Magic' in 'Oh-Ho-Ho, It's Magic', by those quintessential one-hit wonders, Pilot...

A very catchy, bouncy tune that should work as a nice 'pick-me-up' tune for ya...

...not anything 'earth-shattering', lyric-wise, but catchy and fun to sing along to, even if it's in the stratosphere in spots... but overall a great example of early 70's AM radio pop tunes, kept at three and a half minutes or less... for posting...the next 'scheduled' post will be... Tuesday, or, Christmas don;t be surprised if the Big Band Boys take the week off...hey, the 70's cats had an off week, so... it's the horn blowers' turn to lay out, I guess...

hope y'all have a wonderful Christmas!!!

Until next time,

Big Band Tuesday #4 - A String of Pearls by The Glenn Miller Orchestra

...y'know, Tuesdays really 'sneak up' on me... well, anyway... WELCOME to the fourth installment of of the Big Band tunes Huey is fond of... this week, we have...a String of Pearls, performed here by Glenn Miller Orchestra...
...just an awesome tune, y'all... really catches the true essence of 'Big Band',  with the different horn 'lines' weaving within the melody, the neat 'bridge' in the middle with solos... in fact, if I had to pick a tune to 'introduce' someone to Big Band, this one would be a VERY likely candidate...of course, 'In The Mood' is arguably THE quintessential Big Band tune, but...y'all are pretty familiar with that one... as you may well be with this one, but... just in case... enjoy!
Well, hope everyone has a great Holiday Season... I will probably keep these posts 'on track', but over at G-ology, I will be slaving away on the Roberta review, which WILL be completed...SOON...

Until then,

Super Seventies Saturday #4 - Smoke On the Water by Deep Purple

...well, not sure if you knew this was the logical 'stream of consciousness' process that would unfold or not, is... from the song 'Deep Purple' to the rock group 'Deep Purple', and their signature tune, 'Smoke on the Water'... which, in 'rock circles' is almost taken for granted, it's so ubiquitous... but truly one of the 'all-time' guitar riffs, which anyone who ever picked up an electric guitar ultimately picks out on it (myself included)... the song tells a 'true story' of how the dudes were in Montreux, Switzerland recording tunes, when the big old hotel they were staying in went up in flames... it was near a lake... thus, 'Smoke on the Water'... sometimes the best tunes are written from actual events...
...and yes, there is a cool connection between the song 'DP' and the band 'DP'... when the band 'DP' was starting up, they were searching for a good name for themselves... and one of the dudes had a grandma who had to be pretty cool, probably baked cookies and stuff for them... and also cool because the song 'DP' was one of her favorites... so much so that she always asked them if they were going to perform the song 'DP'...well, no, not really (although it WOULD have been pretty cool if they did a version of it...) - well, even though they knew the tune wasn't going to be in their repertoire, they DID dig the sound of the name 'Deep Purple' for the there you go...

OK, hope everyone is having a great Holiday season!

Until next time,

Big Band Tuesday #3 - Deep Purple by The Artie Shaw Orchestra, vocals by Helen Forrest

...well, installment #3 is upon us, y'all (dang...the weeks are going by quickly...when is Thanksgiving? :-] )...

Today, we bring you the loverly tune, 'Deep Purple', written by Peter DeRose, performed by the Mighty Artie Shaw Orchestra, and sung by the ethereal pipes of Miss Helen Forrest... it just me, or does Artie Shaw look more than a bit like Lew Ayres? ...and speaking of Ginger, (???) (ALL conversations lead to Ginger in Hueyville, right?) - I always think about that scene in Roxie Hart where she says, "...and then, everything went - PURPLE..."  ...hmmmm...DEEP Purple, perhaps?

The first recording of this tune was by the Larry Clinton Orchestra, and vocalized by Bea Wain, and was a big hit in 1938...the version featured here was done in the early 40s, I do believe... another interesting note about this tune is that it was Babe Ruth's much so, that the composer DeRose performed it annually at the Bambino's Birthday Bash...

Several versions have been recorded over the years...Donny and Marie among others... in1963, a duo called Nino Tempo & April Stevens (which was another 'brother-sister duo') hit #1 with their version, and also won the Best Rock and Roll (???) Record for 1963...

Well, there ya go... Deep Purple... an enchanting tune that has stood the test of time...

Hope to be back soon with more information for you to glean nuggets of savory wisdom from...

Until that glorious day,

Super Seventies Saturday #3 - "Green-Eyed Lady" by Sugarloaf

Hi, y'all!!!
THIS week's Seventies tune is from one of the many 'one-hit wonder' bands from the early 70s, Sugarloaf... Green-eyed Lady.

THIS tune has a great 'tone-setting' intro to it, again, quite jazz-influenced with the 'herky-jerky' note the bass line... and pretty trippy drums as well. The lyrics? Well, in general they are in reference to a lady...with green eyes... yeah... not a heap of vocals in it, but, what's there sets the mood quite nicely. Didn't Ginger have green eyes more or less? I've seen a few places that reported as such...overall they look blue to me...

THE organ solo is pretty indicative of early 70s tunes, for better or worse...this particular one rocks, IMHO... but other tunes have a bit 'overbearing' organ section... and the instrumental section in general has the nice 'ethereal' feel a lot of these tunes had... cool stuff.

THIS is actually the 'long version' of the tune, which honestly, I'd not heard until I downloaded this vid...for all you whipper-snappers out there, back in the 60s, 70s, and even into the 80s, radio liked to keep tunes at 3 minutes or so, mainly to cram as many songs in as most songs had to be 'clipped' down to that standard length... it's good that that practice isn't still around, cause 3 minutes just ain't enough for most tunes... then, again, it may be TOO much for others...

AND, as for the video portion of this entry, I have no idea about is just some stuff added by whoever posted the, works as well as most videos out there...

So, hope y'all dig this one... another one of my, I probably won;t post anything here that I DON'T like...right?

Until then,

Big Band Tuesday #2 - Tuxedo Junction by the Glenn Miller Orchestra

Hi y'all! Well, here's the second of what hopes to be a ton of installments for Big Band Tuesday here at NBABOH!

THIS edition deals with a song that is pretty familiar to me... Tuxedo Junction, which was written by Erskine Hawkins and performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

NOW, why is this one so familiar? Well...because on most days I drive home from work, I go right by the place that inspired the song, in the Ensley neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama (which is not far at all from where Baby Huey spent his formative years)...there's even a 'historical commission plaque' right on the corner which I need to read one day... unfortunately the neighborhood is a bit on the sketchy side, so I might need to just take a pic and roll on...

ANYWAY, another cool aspect of this tune (for me) is that my lowly alma mater, UAB, plays it at football games...which I think is quite cool to hear, although I know 90% or more of the folks there have little or no idea why they are playing it... I try to explain it, but to no avail...

SO, with all of that, here is...Tuxedo Junction...which, all personal Huey-isms aside, is a classic jazz - big band tune which is VERY worthy of the slot allotted here...

...well, hope y'all are digging this feature...even tho y'all can just jump on YouTube and grab them for yourselves, hopefully I can add my thoughts to make it a bit more interesting, and also gather please reply! Tell your friends!!! RELEASE THE KRACKEN!!! ...or the Huey, anyway...

Until then,

Super Seventies Saturday #2 - Diamond Girl by Seals and Crofts

...this tune is a fine example of how early 70's music blended jazzy blues style with basic rock-pop... to great effect!

I remember as a kid listening to this tune on the radio, and it being in the middle of July... I evidently had a transistor radio (er....look it up, kids...), because I remember riding my bike around while hearing it, under the blazing afternoon sun...and how the phrase 'Diamond Girl - You sure do shine' seemed to correlate well with that sun... so, it's a 'summer tune' for me, anyway... but I dig the bass lines to it, the horn section, which was prevalent in many tunes from the era...and a very well-placed jazz-tinged guitar solo at the end... just pretty cool stuff. These cats were trained musicians, as I remember, so they knew more than the average bear regarding arrangements...

These are tunes I grew up with, and are pretty cool in that they recall a 'time and place' for me, which is something music is really good at...doesn't even have to be a 'memorable' place...just a bike ride in the afternoon sun... and although this is 'Super Seventies', there may be a 'fudging' of the time frame from time-to-time, as cool tunes present themselves...

Hope you enjoy...and I do take requests! :-)

Until later...

Big Band Tuesday #1 - Take the 'A' Train by Duke Ellington Orchestra

...ANOTHER new feature...although the 70's deal didn't happen on 11/24/12 (those dudes were all out for Thanksgiving...) - this weekly post will feature one of Huey's favorite tunes from one of Huey's favorite genres of music...Big Band / Swing / Jazz - whatever ya wanna call it (consult with Clarissa for specifics), it's gonna be in this spot more often than not...

We kick off this feature with one of the MOST awesome tunes from this era, "Take the 'A' Train", performed here by 'Sir' Duke Ellington and his Orchestra... to me, a very complete 'capture' of what Big Band / Jazz style is all about...
Hope you enjoy! And, I DO take requests... well, heck, most ANY tune you need is on YouTube, which this, in essence, is working as a 'YouTube' channel of sorts...
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and is getting back into the 'groove' of things in your day-to-day affairs...

Until next time...

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!!'s one of the more 'infamous' turkey events in recent history:

We're frying a 10-pounder up tomorrow... with all safety precautions in place... and a ham for
backup, just in case...

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Super Seventies Saturday #1 - Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) - by Looking Glass weekly feature for y'all...

I'm a child of the 70's (well, born in the Summer of Love, and MAY have been (but most likely not) one of the little naked babies roaming around the grounds of Woodstock...) - so, I grew up with 70's music...which was the hippest, most happening, groovy and COOL era of popular music....EV-AHHHHHH!!!! (well, of course, I love ANYTHING Ginger utters, and big band stuff also, along with blues and metal...some country, and quite a bit of R&B - Soul stuff... which generally is all encompassed in 70's tunes!) ANYWAY, we kick things off with installment #1, the tune "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by Looking of the quintessential 'one-hit wonder' bands from the early 70's...
so, here ya go... sorry for the 'intro commercial', but...those typically precede the 'best version' of a given video:
...This tune has always been one of my faves, and I could probably do a pretty mean karaoke version of it... so be on the lookout for that...riiiiiight....  anyway, cool tune that has that definite 70's 'vibe'...

This will hopefully be a 'weekly' installment, if anything, to get a bit of 'structure' to this burgeoning blog... hope ya dig it...

Peace, Love, and...

Finding Bigfoot...

New Season...
Sunday November 11, 2012,, sometime that night (check local listings for time in your area)...
Animal Planet network...

Nuff Said...

...time to watch the squatch!!!, guess y'all can tell I dig the lore and legend of Bigfoot... I remember going to see a 'documentary' movie about Bigfoot back when I was a young'un in the 70s... and I thought it was pretty cool then... guess I still do...

The only question I have is, what happens when they actually ENCOUNTER a squatch? Will they try to communicate with it? Or, shoot it with a tranquilizer dart, 'tag it and bag it', and send it off to the research folks?

Only time will tell... in the the BFRO Warriors... Godspeed... and keep hope alive!!!

Shim Sham Shimmy by Champion Jack Dupree

...Perpetual Nonsense Post...

...Now, THIS feature hopefully won't scare any of is nothing more than 'random thoughts' which are 'pun-like', witty, and/or just downright strange... as all other 'pages' I guess it's OK if you wish to contribute to this feature, but, I honestly don't expect y'all to operate at the same level of freakishness which I do from time to time... and, as always, no potty-mouth entries, please... 

The one thing to remember is, these 'thoughts' are all 'independent' of each other, thus there's no real continuity could throw all these in a hat and mix them up, and the order would be most likely just as effective as the presentation here...

OK, SO...don't say I didn't warn y'all...

He once had a nosebleed. She solved the problem by shoving mass quantities of cotton up his snoot.

After all, she killed him, why should she bury him?

...Post Time...

...well, I have barraged you with numerous posts... but, actually, I am just 'revamping' this thing to make it a bit easier to deal with... these posts just posted will be 'perpetual', in that I'll just add more stuff...and y'all feel free to add comments at will...

I did away with the 'pages' section, as it just...wasn't working, y'all...

And hopefully, I can start somewhat 'regular posting', for current events, and get y'all's take on it...

As a result, I'll just put a 'LINK' to these posts somewhere up tiop, so ya can always link to it...cause I KNOW y'all want to catch up on huey's fav music lyrics... and so forth...

Hope y'all are well...and tell all your friends about the nutty crunch that IS NBABOH... We're open for business...AGAIN!!!!

THIS feature will also be a 'running deal', listing memorable movie lines, most likely from the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood, which to me is 1930-1945-ish... although I'm sure a lot of 'newer' films will find their way into the proceedings... the lines may be pretty familiar, but we are REALLY looking for those 'hidden gems' that aren't generally part of the lexicon of pop culture... but, hey, if you dig one of those, feel free to post it!
