"Kicks & Chicks" : THE WEEKEND MIX

I realize this mix has been posted before, but you might have missed it.

Truth be told, I am about to go on vacation, a self-prescribed mental health break. I am only going to be gone for a week and I think my head might need 5 years in the Ozarks to clear up, but you have to start somewhere.

Starting on Monday, Burning Wood will have a guest blogger, long time friend and supporter, Jeff K. (Joan Rivers and Fred Travalena both said no.) Jeff is up for the task, and quite frankly, I am very excited. So please show him some love. Unless of course you hate his posts, then feel free to tear him a new one as you would do me.

And now, a Weekend Mix rerun from 2011.

It goes like this.

I don't remember where I got this from. I know nothing about it. I can't find any real info about it. (I've tried, but maybe not hard enough.) Aside from Julie Driscoll, Lulu and the Shocking Blue, I don't know any of the artists on it. But, it found its way into my hands sometime last year, and boy is it a doozy!

The Pleasure Seekers did a cover of "Gonna Have a Good Time" by the Easybeats. I'm pretty sure they were a sort of manufactured band that was on TV a fair amount in the late 60s/early 70s. Kind of clean cut girl next door with huge tracts of land image, if you know what I mean....

Oops -- I'm thinking of somebody. The Pleasure Seekers were Suzi Quatro's first band, circa 1965.

I went looking for info on Jenny and the Rascals (what a great song!) and found myself here:

This site has at least some info on a few of the artists here. Jenny and the Rascals are from The Hague! Of course!

Perfect summertime tunes! Thanks again Sal.

Ah the 60s girl group I was thinking of were The Clingers.

Sort of like Mormon showgirls....

What a blast! This mix provided many kix over the weekend, never leaving my car's CD player. Now residing on my MP3 player, too.

"C'est Pas Prudent" ... I may have to add this phrase to our family crest.

And "Tame Me, Tiger"! They need to have Mary Jane sing that to Peter Parker ... although that might necessitate a different kind of Spider-Man movie.

What a blast. Thanks, Sal.

Pandora??? Pandora??? I'm laughing so hard right now . . . visions of afternoon tv in chicagoland watching "kiddie a-go-go." thank you for this.

Kim and Grim!?
If only I can find a singer willing to go by "Kim," I will be appropriating this for my next musical endeavor! The New Kim and Old Grim.

Enjoy your rest, Sal.
