Double Initials HH
Both Rol and Lynchie had pointed out that there was a Henry Hall who was a big band leader who could have featured
Did he have a fantastic sweep over though?
To matters more mundane.
I had originally dug out some tunes from the hard drive, But when Marie and then Ernie mentioned Hawkshaw Hawkins I remembered I had a track by him on a Country compilation called Road of Broken Hearts and it's a cracker.
Rol than pitched in again by somewhat incredulously stating that there was a band called Ha Ha Tonka. There is indeed Rol. Their album the brilliantly named Buckle in the Bible Belt on the Bloodshot label and bought for £2 in Glasgow's Missing Records is on the shelves and so they are featuring today.
Back to Ernie and Marie. Ernie is doing " a Marie" by sending me a song to feature. By Higher Heights he confidently states that it the best Polish folk dub reggae record ever made. Time to put that to the test.
If eclecticism is your thing pop over to his place. You will be in for a treat.
Next week it begins to get really tricky. I have one II lined up and possibly a second.
Over to you folks
Hawkshaw Hawkins - Lonesome 7-7203
Ha Ha Tonka - Caney Mountain
Higher Heights - Going to the Village (Krzesany Po Dwa)

Thank you for your kind words, CC. Next week might be a tricky one for you, but I'm sure the troops will rally round. I have a few tracks by a reggae singer from Cote d'Ivoire called Ismael Isaac, but that's about it.ReplyDelete
Track 1 from the album Twinkle Inna Polish Stylee, nice on ErnieReplyDelete
Isley Jasper Isley?ReplyDelete
Thinking about this one in advance, all I came up with without consulting the library was It's Immaterial. Surely they're your one certainty.ReplyDelete
I'll be back later if I think of any more.
No, that's all I've got.Delete

Not sure if you'd count this, but do you remember Indians In Moscow? A Peel favourite I think, at least that's where I heard them... well, how could anyone forget a song called 'Jack Pelter and His Sex Change Chicken'?!ReplyDelete
I want to hear that!Delete
It's rather good!Delete
Bob Marley's backing singers were the 3 I's.Which could be cheating.ReplyDelete
Oh, I've a dozen or so of II's .. but as I just returned from a few days @ the Dutch coast, I suppose it'll be too late to name them anyway …ReplyDelete
Nah, just kidding … apart from It's Immaterial, there's nothing. Although I'd quite like to hear their 'Driving Away From Home' again ...ReplyDelete
