What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Gary US Bonds Twist Up Calypso


The Twist was all the rage.  Calypso was a hit with the cocktail set.  What's an artist to do when his hit singles were drying up?  Combine the two crazes and see if it stick of course.

Gary "U.S." Bonds - Twist up Calypso  (Legend 1962)




Bonds was responsible for some great pre British Invasion party songs.  School Is Out, A Quarter To Three and New Orleans are still classics IMHO.
