Miles Davis to Betty Davis, nice.
Avatar 12:20am Droll:

I thought this Bette Davis tune was Mother's Finest. I think the answer to both her questions was "Yes".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Ken From Hyde Park:

Filling in the big shoes of $mall ¢hange.
Avatar 12:21am Holly in NC:

Betty Davis is so alpha, I think if I were ever to be in the same room as her, I would lie down and show my soft white belly. Do you know she was born in Durham, NC?
Avatar 12:25am Holly in NC:

MAYBE my favorite non-Otis Stax single. Today, anyway.
Avatar 12:31am Droll:

Holly, Yeah, I would probably do exactly the same thing if Betty Davis walked in the room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35am Tome:

GREAT set Mike S.. !!! wow
  12:41am Toddophonic:

One time I walked up to Steve Cropper and told him how much I loved the guitar on "Big Bird". He paused for a moment and said, "That was Booker T.". End of discussion.
Avatar 12:47am Holly in NC:

@Toddophonic - That's a great story. But ouch!

There were three dude playing this song in Union Square last week. It made my night. The grooooove!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58am Fuzzy:

Sounds great on headphones -- I heard woodblocks that I never knew were there before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59am Eyepatch Fox:

Gak. DudeS I meant. I didn't stay long enough to hear the horn part, so I've no idea how they pulled it off with a guitar, a bass, and drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am Eyepatch Fox:

Back to dancing in my kitchen with my headphones in! Wheeee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11am Mike Sin:

Hi All -- thanks for checking in and listening! I do appreciate it.
Avatar 1:14am Holly in NC:

So good. One of very few songs that hew closely to a great original and is equally great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27am mariano:

That is one of the best gifs I have seen in a while, the sunglasses!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am mariano:

Wow, I had no idea Picadilly Line could be so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41am mariano:

Wow, Mike: it never ceases to amaze me how much good stuff from the 60s I've never heard! Really great, thanks!
Avatar 1:50am Whooda:

I think that's Twiggy on the gif. Very circa 60's appropriate.
Avatar 1:53am Whooda:

I thunk so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58am mariano:

Ginger Ale? And you're drinking too? My good sir, I should like to marry you!

Would love to see the Black Hollies & the Allah-Las, a super double bill.
Hi Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41am Julie:

Who would win in a tag-team fight, Chad & Jeremy or Peter & Gordon (you can toss Boyce & Hart in there too)
Avatar 2:42am Holly in NC:

Boyce & Hart would pulverize the competition!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Fuzzy:

Then on to the final deathmatch with Ferrante and Teischer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Julie:

Whoa Dave song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am Guido from Cologne:

Tag Team Fight of skinny grandfathers on dope?
Might be fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47am Julie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49am Guido from Cologne:

Attacking each othe with their martin guitars and "love&peace" protest signs: even more fun!
