Crowns & Coronets # 3
We are slumming it a bit this week as we go down the ranks from Crowns to Coronets with dukes and earls featuring today.
Ernie Goggins suggested a double header by featuring Duke of Earl. I was thinking along similar lines but when I reached for my Darts album I found it wasn't on it. Therefore I had to source it and it seemed to make more sense to opt for the early 60's original by Gene Chandler which I must admit I wasn't familiar with.
Another double header of sorts as I give you Steve Earle and the Dukes with a song from their 1987 album Exit O.
More dukes and earls next week.

Thanks CC. Unlike Steve, I am satisfied. This more than compensates for the lack of Darts (although I do think a bit of Den Hegarty would improve most things)ReplyDelete
I suggest for next week Dukes Of Stratosphear and something by Earl Klugh a jazz-fusion guitarist well knonw at my place in the 80's. I remember his Album Low Ride in my collectionReplyDelete
Don't have either of those Walter. Guest posts welcomed!Delete
I try to fix a guest post over the Weekend StevieDelete
The Gene Chandler tune is sublime.ReplyDelete
Gene & Steve are fine by me. If it's a Darts song, I'll take "The Boy From New York City" every time. Everybody now - "Ooh wah, ooh wah cool, cool kitty"ReplyDelete
Gene Chandler, the best song I will hear todayReplyDelete
I'm with Athens Swede on Gene Chandler.ReplyDelete
May I offer The Duke Spirit and Duke Special?
I've no idea why spellcorrect decided The Swede is from Athens.Delete
I have nothing by those two DukesDelete
Rol - guest post welcomedDelete
Sort yourself out CC, The Duke Spirit and Duke Special are both worth owning. Songs From The Deep Forest would be a good place to start with Duke SpecialReplyDelete
Meant to say, Gene Chandler's version of There Was A Time is wonderful.ReplyDelete
