    Some of my least favorite records came out during the timespan here...and I promise to bring something I truly think is sick and wrong this week, but for now I give you one of my favorite records of all time. Stiff Little Fingers Alternative Ulster. First time I heard Jake Burns yelling this, I was completely bowled over.
    Got to meet him on my 22nd birthday (which is now 24 years ago), and I will never forget how great they sounded playing this in their mid forties.
    I do not sound as good in mine.

    Here's an interesting song that went to #13 on the country charts for Bob Luman in 1977. He's one of my all time favorite singers, who died tragically at age 41 in 1978. I really miss landlines and pay phones. I kept this take cause Rayna assisted me with it.

    Kenniski Rogeroff who had a love for the tango and minor keys
    Recorded "Ludmilla" in the Ukraine in the 1960's. He then hijacked
    an Aeroflot plane and flew it to Cuba, and from there he made
    his way to Miami, and once in the USA he changed his name
    to Kenny Rogers and in 1977 we recorded Ludmilla as a waltz
    and as a tip of the hat to his new adopted country he changed
    the name of the song to Lucille.

    On a motorcycle tour of Spain nearly 20 years ago, I made an enormous diversion from our planned route, simply so I could send a postcard home (postcards? Remember them?) that opened with the line "I'm in a bar in Toledo, not far from the depot..."

    Oh Rick, you're playing right into my hands here - slap bang in the middle of some of my most musically active years (watching & listening, at least). I set off to university in 1978, having grown up miles from any live music. And then there I was at Leeds University, which appeared on the tour schedule of pretty well every band going around the UK at that time. My first year studies included The Ramones, The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Siouxsee & The Banshees, and many many more.
    But back to the day I arrived there, and this song was on the radio. Whenever I hear it, I can see my room, the view from the window, and hear the doors of the other rooms opening & closing as the other new starters turned up. Strangely though, I didn't see Blondie until 2016!

    I Want You to Want Me, cover of Cheap Trick song from 1978. Mine is a 1-take, less rock, more country version. I never envisioned doing Cheap Trick on a uke, but here goes!

    Unlike me, my older brother John was always a bit of a non-conformist, and when the punk movement happened in the late 1970s he latched onto it big time - it was the perfect vehicle for his rebellious teenage tendencies. We shared a bedroom and some of the records he played at full volume sounded like nothing more than sheer noise and drove me to distraction. However, some of the milder punk stuff he liked I actually became quite fond of (though I’d never admit that to him at the time!), and Buzzcocks certainly fell into that category. This one they released in 1979 and was a lot of fun to play just now:
