Ain't Gonna Bump No More With No Big Fat Woman from the disco era. Is that Misty Knight in the album artwork?!

Crabby Appleton anyone? May have heard of the band, but never heard this song. It cracked the top 40 in 1970, then disappeared into obscurity. Definitely more of a 60s pyschedelic sound. Great guitar work!

I didn't know that Cracker's 'Shake Some Action' was a cover of a song from 1976! Original version is by some cats named 'The Flamin' Groovie'.

I recall hearing this song before, but never knew it was the Beach Boys -- really a departure from their surf sound. Also thought it was Sail On, Sail On, Sail On. Not Sail On, Sail On, Sailor.  Good tune!

Did you know Fleetwood Mac existed before Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the group? This song is from that era. Steve Welch (Ebony Eyes) is on guiatar and vocals.

One of my favorite David Bowie tunes that I didn't even know existed a couple of years back!

"The Flamin' Groovies"

I need to use that somewhere, somehow.

Those old Top 40 countdowns on Sirius 70s are really chock full of lost hits and information. Who knew that the Pointer Sisters had a country hit?



Quote
The Pointer Sisters hold the distinction as the first black female group to perform on the hallowed stage of the Grand Ole Opry. “Fairytale” won the Pointer Sisters their first of three highly coveted Grammy Awards for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group

The song only went to 37 on the Country charts --- wasn't too well received by radio stations apparently. Scored much higher on Hot 100 topping out at 13 in 1974. To the best of my knowledge, last week was my introduction to the song -- even though my dad listened to country and my mom listened to pop/easy listening.

Been grooving a bit on the new Buffett album Buried Treasures where he tells stories about these "lost" early 70's track that were found a few years ago. It's all stuff from before his first album, so it's a bit different.

He talks about Gordon Lightfoot being an influence, and you can hear that in the tracks. I think there's some Jim Croce in there as well.

All that said, it's a bit rough around the edges and wont be every Parrothead's cup of tea. He tells a story on a track and then plays the song on the next track. Since I'm listening on CD, it's a little annoying once you've heard the stories once or twice. Digitally, you could make your own playlist, obviously.

He has a track where he does California Dreamin at a breakfast for the Junior Miss USA or something or other that I really kind of dig.

Hoping there is more volumes of this concept.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't in heavy rotation right now.
