The Best of Whisky A Go Go

Searched for this over many years - thinking it was an LP.  Nope, only a 4 song EP featuring tracks by Autumn & Levi Smith Clefs.  It was worth the wait ... great cover, great songs. Also have a bit of a thing for bikinis with tassels.  Wonderful.

Crazy José - Cha Cha Cha

Cha cha cha indeed.  In 1959 playing a keyboard like this may have seemed normal.  Now, it's just plain 'dirty old man'.  Despite that, Jose seems pretty darn happy.  I say 'Good on ya' - whatever turns you on ....

Dr Samuel J Hoffman & Billy May - Music For Peace Of Mind

The Theremin is a blessing in disguise.  Wrapped in cling wrap perhaps.  I like this cover, it oozes W&W.  I also vote for more theremin albums on this blog.  What do you think?

Jandek - Ready for the House

Outsider music rulz.  In 1978 Jandek started his W&W journey with this album.  Since then he has released 5 squillion albums - all heartfelt and totally unique.  OK, it's not everyone's taste but many devotees of the artists in this blog will appreciate what he has to offer.  In fact, most will already have heard of him.

For those that have not - please change your ways.  All his other stuff (self released) is readily (and cheaply) available from Corwood Industries.  Knock yourself out gang.

Jathon Delsy

The outsider world of Jathon is very darn W&W.  I have never seen anything like this before.  Jathon wears a different coloured dress on every clip and rips through the guitar solos.  Different paintings also adorn the clips - I'm sure there's a story behind that.  He wears a Beret, sunnies and muscle shirt - and then there's the songs and lyrics.  View the Youtube clips - I guarantee, this is totally unique, unusual and highly recommended.  The song listed below is one of many.

Ernie Coleman Trio - Be Gentle, Please

It could be Ernie or the cover babe making this plea.  Stop and think, this must have been very unusual in 1959.  Wine glass in hand ... double unusual.

Alternative album cover is also include - but we are none the wiser as to who is making the plea.  It does seem to be Ernie though?!?
