    Let's See Now. Feb. 9, 1964. Sunday Night. Ed Sullivan. Why, of course, it's The Big Bang! And the World as we knew it, would NEVER be the same again. Thank You Very Much, Little Steven, for our yearly dose of The MOST important event in our lifetimes. No reported Crime in NYC while The Beatles played on Ed Sullivan! YEAH-BABY! Show # 567. The Big Bang! Set 1. I Want to Hold Your Hand & All My Loving by The Beatles. The Swinging Blue Jeans contribute that Hippy Hippy Shake. The Rolling Stones with their cool new One More Shot. Also the hard working Strypes with Blue Collar Jane, another new one. Tony Sheridan closes the set with Shake It Some More. Cool sound bytes by Cheech speaking of the "non herbal" way to get high in The Garage. Also Mr. John Lennon with "What You Hear Is what You Get, or didn't Get". Chan Romero should get credit for Hippy Hippy Shake. Mr. Romero was from Montana, of all places. Set 2. Nice anecdote about Capitol Records & their ground-breaking idea of giving radio stations the records to play on the radio. Further adventures of "clueless" Dave Dexter who passed on the Beatles & essentially all of the 1st wave of British Invasion Groups except for Freddie & the Dreamers? You can't make this stuff up! Thank goodness for that phone call from Mr. Brian Epstein. Nice version of Words Of Love by The Beatles which was followed by Mr. Buddy Holly, himself, with I'm gonna Love You too. Nice sound byte by The Crickets, themselves. The 1967 Bee Gees give us My Own Time which you played on show # 564. Excellent new Stuff from Genya Ravan with Cobblestones/Rolling Stones which tells of Genya as goldie & The Gingerbreads 1965 tour backing the Stones in England with all of the cool groups & places from that era name-checked by Genya. Excellent new cd by Genya "Cheesecake Girl", which I command you to pick up! 15 excellent tracks in over 73 minutes which displays why Genya is STILL very relevant TODAY! Del Shannon closes the set with From Me to You. Set 3. More anecdote about how Vee Jay picked up The Beatles after "clueless" Dave Dexter passes on them. Of course, Vee Jay lost 10% of all Beatle future releases revenue because of an $800 lapse in their payments. WHEW! Thank goodness for Capitol. The Beatles kick off with Please Mr. Postman which was followed by the incredible "wellspring" Little Richard with Long Tall Sally. Cool new stuff by Twylight Zones with the somewhat obscure Stones tune Ride On Baby. The Rasberries follow with an example of perfect production with Tonight. The Trashed Romeos Gotta Find A New Love. Ending the excellent set & coming around full circle with The Marvelettes with Playboy. Set 4. Opening with Christian Mcneill & The Sea Monsters crawl out of Boston Harbor to give us I will Always Be Your Friend which also happens to be this weeks coolest song of the week. The vastly underrated Billy Fury delivers There's Nothing Shakin' But The Leaves On The Tree. Badfinger follows with their incredible perfect single Baby Blue, influenced by The Beatles, of course. Palmyra Delran follows with Shy Boy which is her follow-up to You're My Brian Jones, Closing the set after a nice sound byte by Ringo is The Beatles with the truly excellent Arthur Alexander composition which is Soldier Of Love, with lead vocal by Mr. John Lennon. Like you, Stevie, I'll never understand why it was never released as a single. Set 5. Nice anecdote about how little Marsha Albert got The Beatles on the radio. Thank goodness for little 15 year old Marsha Albert introducing "I Want To Hold Your Hold". Then thank Harold James for ignoring Capitol's order to NOT play the record! INCREDIBLE! The Beatles open the set with Every Little Thing with those nice Everly Brothers-type harmonies. The incredible Fats Domino follows with Everybody Gots Something to Hide(Except For Me And My Monkey). The very cool Gants give us My baby Don't Care from 1965. New stuff by Aerosmith with Oh Yeah. Nice sound byte by Mr. Ed Sullivan, himself, remarking on how we shall all miss The Beatles. Boy-he got that right! Closing the last set & the truly Excellent show would be the Beatles with more Everly Brothers type harmonies that would turn into I'll Be Back. And Boy-O-Boy, they got THAT RIGHT!! Just like they say in that song, "You know I hate to leave you". Last song being from Beatles For Sale. You know Stevie, no matter how many times you play The Big Bang, I always LOVE IT! As in HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, Stevie, & also you, Genys Ravan. Thanks again, Stevie, for another 5 star Saturday Night! Signing off-for now. To All who live IN & FOR The Underground Garage, Peace Be With You! EEYAHH SMRZ!!

    keep on the eye on The Strypes folks ,they're just starting to hit in the UK,getting plenty of attention from some of the great and good of Rock n Roll..Elton has signed them to his management company,from Navan Ireland they are all between 15 and 16..so young ..!!..yet they are so tight..being compared to the early version of the Rolling Stones,basically a teenage band,learning their craft playing covers,with a few of their own numbers..similar to the story-line of Not Fade Away and exactly how Stevie suggests bands should be going about it !!...can't legally go into some of the venues on their upcoming UK tour..!!..think they could be big..!..Blue Collar Jane already getting air time on the one and only Underground Garage..!!..Naturally..!

      Good Day to you, Mr. Hibbs, across the pond. Yes, I watched the video in the Underground Garage Site of the Strypes & I was rather taken aback by how young they looked. They certainly have their chops down damn straight though. "Blue Collar Jane" is an excellent tune 7 you could tell that the boys have already paid some dues. Will keep an eye on them-and an ear, also. Take Care, Mr. Hibbs! Sincerely, SMRZ!!

        02/21/2013

        Hello Robert..I figured you'd probably checked them out..!..I mean I was amazed how young they look/are!!..but as you say they really have got their chops down,just seems to flow naturally,the guitar player can really play and he's got all the moves..think they have been students of the Blues & R&B,and they have been well put together..they play all the right gear,the bass player uses the Orange bass Cab with Orange Amp,which I think you need...half the battle if what you play sounds right, kinda brings a smile to my face to see a band so young yet so good!!..Question for you..When does the Coolest tracks of the year Album normally appear..?..How long into the New Year before that's up there in the shop..?...I wanna pick up the Album from last year..Volume 12 or whatever its up too..?..Regards Hibbsy...

    Dear Hibbsy! In regards to your query. In regards to the coolest song collections, it pretty much depends entirely on whether or whenever Stevie can get the rights for each individual track to put on the cd. Because of Little Steven's strong position, most artists give him the rights as quickly as possible. He then has to compile each cd collection of coolest tracks so there is no EXACT time when the newest one comes out. He is so bloody busy. I don't know how he does it. Between the Band, The Radio show, his acting gig with Lilyhammer on Netflix, his various kick-starter projects & now he will be producing The Rascals very successful reunion to be playing on Broadway in April. Whew! Really, he does have an army of people that work for him but still. He is involved in so many worthy projects, I don't see when he even gets time to SLEEP! He is truly a remarkable individual! I did want to mention to you about the 60's Garage-Punk collection called Down Under Nuggets, if you don't have it already. It is one cd with 29 tracks that run over 78 minutes long. It is called Down Under Nuggets-Original Australian Artyfacts 1965-67. I was finally able to acquire it from an Aussie seller & it is truly excellent! If you are into 60's Punk-Garage, you will be elated over the collection. Again, if you don't already own it. Take Care Mr. Hibbs & Peace Be With You! sincerely, SMRZ!!

      SMRZ..Thanks so much for the reply..!!..I guessed getting the album together was the first issue,rights for each individual track.I mean its in the bands/artists interest too,to get one of their songs on an album like that,the exposure etc..SVZ such a force for good,talks sense,and it seems he's getting a voice to a wider audience with the ability to turn people on, that politicians just don't reach..Underground Garage just part of what he does as you say,the path to righteousness without a doubt..!!..I'll have a look for the Aussie cd,can't say I associate Australia with 60's Punk-Garage rock...!!..just goes to show,its out there...!!!..Thanks Man..!!
