Show 540 - Disciples Of Soul Part 1: UK

Air Date:

Tuesday, 07 August 2012

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

August is upon us, and to make it memorable, we are going to make it the August of Soul!

We are doing a four part series on the influence or R&B and Soul music on Rock n’ Roll.

We are calling it Disciples Of Soul, and we are starting this week with the British Invasion, and that will include the Rolling Stones, the Beatle, the Yardbirds, and the Kinks.

We are playing the records by the cats that inspired and motivated them like Little Richard, Larry Williams, Arthur Alexander, Ray Charles, and Sam Cooke.

We will still be playing the coolest new songs in the world from Jack White, Free Energy, the Nevermores, and King Tuff.

It’s Disciples Of Soul Part 1 this weekend as we begin the August of Soul in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio, and on the beach.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Sorry to hear about your Mom; we go along with no death in our lives and then its starts raining again. And thanks for providing the soundtrack of my life...

  • mattyramone

    Hi Steven
    It was great to hear Otis Blackwell's original "Daddy Rolling Stone" - but you may be giving The Who too much credit for re-arranging that... Clearly The Who's arrangement is based on Derek Martin's cover of the song. Some good details about him are here:

    Thanks for another great show!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Little Steven. You never cease to amaze. Just when I thought that you might possibly have run out of new ideas, you come up with a masterful, innovative, & truly informative new concept & idea. Yeah Baby! Disciples Of Soul, Pt. 1 of 4. The U.K. The influence of R & B & Soul on Rock n' Roll. Another 5 Star masterpiece! Great Show, Stevie! I would also like to extend my thanks to the Administrator who has kept us right up to date. GOOD WORK!! Alright1 Show # 540. Disciples Of Soul! Pt. 1 of 4. U.K. Set 1. A new perspective on looking at the evolution of Rock. She Said Yeah. 1st by the innovative Larry Williams & then followed by The Rolling Stones 6 years later in 1965. Both versions are great in their own way. Wait a minute here. Written by Sonny Bono? Did I hear that right? I'm Shakin' by Mr. Analog, aka Jack White. Ok. Long Tall Sally. 1st by Little Richard from 1956 followed by the version by The Kinks. No comparison on this baby. Mr. Ray Davies & company sound quite lame next to Little Richard. What happened to that KICK of the original? Set 2. DO You Love Me? 1st by The Contours & then by The Dave Clark Five. BOTH versions ROCK, but done in a different arrangement. Which is the point that Stevie is displaying here. Electric Fever by Free Energy. Very Cool tune. I Go Crazy. 1st by the incredible James Brown & The Famous Flames from 1960 then followed by the 1965 version done by The Moody Blues when they had Denny Laine. I say that you can't top James Brown but The Moodies perform a fine arrangement done their way. Set 3. The excellent Soldier Of Love 1st by Arthur Alexander then followed by the very cool version done by The Beatles with lead vocals by John. Both very cool. And yes, Stevie, you're right as usual, an enigma as to why The Beatles never released it on a proper 45 or Lp. Interlude with Adelaine by The Nevermores. then quite a contrast with Daddy Rolling Stone. 1st by Otis Blackwell from 1952 followed by the Who from 1965. Quite a different arrangement which actually makes it sound like a new song, altogether. Set 4. Coolest song of the week with I Wanna Be A Teenage Ramone by the Monster Ones. I'm A Man 1st done by The Man Bo Diddley then followed by the very innovative arrangement by The Yardbirds. Very Cool Indeed. Unchain My Heart. 1st by the incomparable Mr. Ray Charles from 1961 then followed by the 1987 arrangement by Joe Cocker with Clarence on sax. Both versions are Excellent! Set 5. Boom Boom 1st by John Lee Hooker from 1962 & then followed by the 1964 version by The Animals. I actually prefer Mr. Eric Burdon's voice & The Animals arrangement on this one. IT TOTALLY ROCKS!! Which, again is the POINT! Nice interlude by King Tuff from nearby Brattleboro, Vt. with Bad Thing. Closing the entertainment & History lesson with Twistin' The Night Away 1st by Sam Cooke & his voice of silk followed by Rod Stewart & his voice of gravel. BOTH versions are excellent & are an intregal part of ANY Rock N' Roll Dance Party. All In All, an end to another excellent Sat. Night that I played yet again on Sunday. A very unique & educational show that helps to put things in their proper perspective. As I said before, Mr. Maharaj Of Garage, you never cease to amaze! EXCELLENT SHOW!! I can't wait for pt. 2. Before I sign off, I would like to recommend to ALL U.G. members to go & pick up The August issue Of MOJO magazine. Absolutely FAB cover article by Paul Trynka titled The Man Who Built The Stones: The Rise & Fall Of Brian Jones. The article is excellent & if you thought that you knew all there was to know about the EARLY Rolling Stones, I guarantee that you will find the article very thought-provoking & revealing about the early days of The Stones & how much Brian influenced those early days. Essentially, Brian was the one most responsible for the formation & early direction of the Stones as they transformed from a Blues band to what they evolved to. I certainly learned how much Brian taught Keith & then how Keith never really gave Brian the credit that he deserved. Quite revealing! I have lost some respect for Keith now that I know how much he stiffed Brian. Yes I know that Brian became a DRUGGED out casualty, but the fact remains that HE was the one who built The Stones as well as the best & most innovative musician in the early days. Well, I guess that's it for another week. Again, a very satisfying, stong, & educational show. GREAT WORK, STEVIE!! To All Who Live FOR & IN The Underground Garage-Peace BE With You!! Sincerely, EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    OH YEAH! Just one more thing! Please remember to post your star ratings! PLEASE!PLEASE!PLEASE! Thank You very Much! Sincerely, SMRZ!!!

  • stephen kelly

    Thanks for the great shows Steve....Being that the archives are not up yet for Pt 2 of Disciples of Soul,can someone tell me the name of one of the first tracks played on this show by Southside Johnny ?...Thanks

    • Robert P Smarse Jr.

      I'm pretty sure that it is the same as last weeks. Disciples Of Soul include some early Springsteen R & B sessions. I'm not sure but I think that's what Stevie said last night. I'll try & listen again tonight. It's on WAQY-100.2 from Springfield, Ma. on Sunday Nights between 10 P.M. untill Midnight. Give it a listen. As you said, it's right at the start of the show before Good Lovin' 1st by the Olympics from 1964 followed by the version by The Young Rascals from 1965. Good Luck! Sincerely, SMRZ!!!

    • keithmoon316

      Pt 2 opened with "Until The Good Is Gone" by the Disciples Of Soul.

      • Robert P Smarse Jr.

        Good Work keithmoon316! You certainly have a keen sense of hearing. Thank You Very Much! Sincerely, SMRZ!!!

    Hold Everything! Stop The Presses! Stevie, Get A Load Of This! On the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, which is a double issue,#1220/1221-August17/24, on page 58 of The Fall Movie Preview, is a picture of John Magaro holding up the cover of your favorite Stones LP 12x5. The movie is called NOT FADE AWAY & is due out Oct. 19. Get this! It is directed by Sopranos Creator David chase! It is about 3 New Jersey teens who form a band after seeing The Stones on TV in 1964! Also, James Gandolfini plays one of the kid's father. Get this direct quote! "Chase promises that Not Fade Away bears only superficial similarities to his HBO hit. It's like The Sopranos in the sense that it's in New Jersey and one of the kids is Italian and James Gandolfini is in it, he says. But is there red stuff on the wall all of a sudden? No!" Wow, Stevie! 12x5 in a major movie directed by David Chase WITH James Gandolfini! Ya Gotta LOVE IT!! EEYAHH!! SMRZ!!!

  • michael hoffer

    have to disagree with you about the comment you made about the Moody Blues. The group went on to record some of the best groundbreaking music of the late 60's and 70's. Their use of the mellotron and other keyboards helped create their completly distinctive sound that you know who you're listening to instantly. Usually I agree with your vast knowledge,but not this time. love your show. listening to your show for years

    • jcjohnson63

      me too. moodies were/are still cool.

  • Ian Washington

    Pretty much in all the shows there are snippets played of classic movie quotes. Some times I can recognize the movie, but does anyone know if there is a listing on little Steven's website of the name of the movies from where these quotes are taken.

    • Robert P Smarse Jr.

      I don't think that they're is. I'm sure that they are all stored somewhere up in Stevie's memory bank. I' tell you what tho. I have a vast knowledge of film because I have taught both classes in Film Noir & Foreign Film off & on over the past 40 years or so ever since I graduated from The Orson Welles Film School in Cambridge back in 1970. So if you give me a specific quote from a specific show, I might be able to help identify it. O.K. Sincerely, SMRZ!!!

      • Ian Washington

        thanks, rob. There are so many, that I don't have any specific in mind. I'll check out some of the movies noted in the cool stuff section. regards.

  • Dan Nooger

    Not sure where this would fit in, but Johnny Thunders did a fantastic version of "Daddy Rolling Stone" (with Steve Marriott on duet vocal - almost rising to the level of second lead, piano and harmonica) on his "So Alone" album, and (with the Heartbreakers) a great take on "Do You Love Me (part of the "LAMF" sessions) - both were recorded in the UK. I saw Otis perform once in the late 70's here in NY at the Lorelei Club (a short lived country music venue) opening for Jerry Lee Lewis. Then during the early 80's I was at one of Doc Pomus' birthday parties at his UES apartment when Otis came in with Big Joe Turner. Otis got on Doc's little electric piano, Big Joe started singing and eventually a news crew from CBS TV news showed up and captured the whole house singing "Shake Rattle & Roll". Quoth the Kinks - "Where Have All The Good Times Gone?"

    In love with "Electric fever" by Free Energy. Everlasting thanks for making me discover this song !


    LITTLE STEVEN AKA THE BIG GUY. You sound like Bruce Springsteen in the song INSIDE OF ME (DISCIPLES OF SOUL).Did you teach him how to sing with soul? Great show by the way.

  • Becky U
