Girls In the Garage, Part 2

0
0
I posted up yesterday's part 1, and THEN listened to some of em (usually I do some spot-listening
before posting, but this time the opposite) and WOW this is a gret, at least if the first volumes are much of an indication, MUCH better than I had really remembered.....even the schlock (the Bootles, Beattle-ettes, Whyt Boots) are at least fall down hilarious, and the "good stuff".....well, it's REALLY good, and, of course, fairly obscure too.

So three more discs today, must confess that I haven't listened to these in probably five years, hoping they are even close to as good as the fst discs.....Volume 4 seems to feature la Femmes de France (if that is not proper French I couldn't care less), and women with French accents always make me wanna, well, I just kinda "like em"......No names jump out at me other than Myriam Martin, who I recall for some reason, not even sure why, perhaps some other comps or something......I bet this is as enjoyable as hell though, and if I'm wrong, well, I'm wrong about shit every day, in general,
starting with getting out of bed.

Volume 5 gives us a few acts making repeat appearances from earlier discs, (Pussycats, Jeff & the Atlantics), as well as a whole new batch of obscure-o's (Electric Lollipop, Angel & the Devines, The Occasionals), also, in name at least, ANOTHER female-Beatles knock off, this one called the Beatle Maids (Miads, huh?), and by no means would ANY of us wish to live life without hearing Linda Gayle's take on "Maggie's Farm". Volume 6 gives us a few repeaters (Crazy Girls, Jonna Gault, Venus Flytrap),ome are the exact same TRACKS that appeared earlier, perhaps things were rearranged upon CD reissue as often happens, but I'll tell ya this, someone named ROberta Wolfson contributes a version of "Tobacco Road", perhaps the most MASCULINE song ever,  can't WAIT to give that another listen.....I'm assuming these later discs of the series can't match the silly innocence and bite of the earlier editions, but at any rate, ya GOTTA love some chicks tryto act "tough" and taking themselves "un-seriously" as musicians, in a "Nuggets" kinda way, territory previously reserved 99% by the dudes......Bon appetit!
