Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches and Herb

Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches and Herb

Shake Your Groove Thing - Peaches and Herb

Though “Peaches and Herb” was billed as a duo, their member rotation is more similar to a group’s. Herb has remained the only constant with, at last count, six “Peaches” stepping up to the microphone.
The original “Peaches,” Francine Hurd Barker, (died 8-13-2005), a Washington, D.C., native, earned the childhood nickname “Peaches” because of her genteel manner.
She sang in neighborhood groups and in her teens became the lead singer for a group named The Keynotes. Starting her own group, The Darlettes, they auditioned for and
were signed to D.C. area label Date Records, where their name was changed to The Sweet Things.

Herb Fame, born Herbert Feemster on October 1st, 1942, in Washington, D.C., began singing in church at seven and continued singing through the years in neighborhood groups. After high school graduation, Herb began working at a record store. His friend, Howard University student Freddie Perren, worked at another record store, Sabin’s right around the corner. One day in January 1965, producer Van McCoy came into the store Herb worked in to ask about doing in-store promotion for a group he was working with called The Sweet Things. Herb convinced McCoy to grant him an audition, and a week later the young record store employee was signed to a contract with Date Records.

McCoy took Herb and The Sweet Things to New York for their first recording sessions, but while they were there, decided to use some extra studio time to record a duet with Herb and the lead singer of The Sweet Things, Francine Barker. Impressed with the results McCoy convinced Date Records to release a single of “We’re In This Thing Together.” The original A-side failed to generate much interest. Then a disc jockey at St. Louis, Missouri, radio station KATZ flipped the single over and began playing the B-side, “Let’s Fall In Love.” It was soon moving up the Hot 100, peaking at #-21 in March of 1967. Before the year was over, Peaches and Herb had three more hits: “Close Your Eyes” (#-8 in May), “For Your Love” (#-20 in August) and “Love Is Strange” (#-11 in November). The duo released two hit albums in 1967 “Let’s Fall In Love” and”For Your Love.” By the years end the duo had earned the nickname The Sweethearts Of Soul.

This same year, Francine Barker tired of the rigors of touring and bowed out, she was replaced with Marlene Mack. And the hits continued: “Two Little Kids” (#-31 in January 1968), “When He Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)” (#-10 R&B in 1969) and “It’s Just A Game, Love” (from the Jim Brown movie “The Split”), (which stalled at #-50 R&B in 1970). It was Peaches and Herb’s last charting single on Date Records. Despondent over
the act’s failing chart success, Herb abruptly quit Peaches and Herb and got a job with the Washington, D.C. Police Department in July 1970.

Then in 1976, Herb decided to re-enter the music business. Linda Greene was home in Washington D.C. that year after working as a model. “I bumped into Van and told him I was at home now and wished I could get into the music business. I thought I was ready to handle something like that” she told the Associated Press. Van mentioned Linda’s name to Herb’s manager and the two met and hit it off. Van, who was currently under contract to MCA Records, brought the “new” Peaches & Herb over to the label and produced their 1977 self-titled release. The duo charted in June with “We’re Still Together” but the albums sales were dismal and it sank without a trace.

Condoms keep your organ safe - Our Awesome Blog

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for sweetness and kindness to all.

One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.

As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water. In the water floated, of all things, a condom! When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat.

The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist. “Miss Beatrice”, he said, “I wonder if you would tell me about this?” pointing to the bowl. “Oh, yes” she replied, “isn’t it wonderful?

I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven’t had the flu all winter!” The pastor fainted.

Bust Your Chops – Common Phrases

Bust Your Chops – Common Phrases

Bust Your Chops - Common Phrases

To give someone a hard time. As in, “Yes, I’m late and I’m not wearing pants. Don’t bust my chops.”

Most say it came from …
There was once a time in the world when it was considered cool to sport a long, ridiculous pair of mutton chop side burns. From America to England, Russia to … some other place even further away than Russia, the civilized global population couldn’t get enough of these peninsula-shaped patches of hair.

Then, these people got punched in the face–their “chops busted,” if you will–and an idiom was born.

So is that true? 
Even though there is no definitive proof to back this up, this seems to be the only theory going. Also, it involves stupid looking facial hair, so it has that going for it.

It’s just too bad that as regal and dignifying as the chops were for our founding fathers they only made hippies in the ’60s seem like unwashed piles of tie-dyed failures. To this day the only people able to successfully pull off mutton chops are old-timey gold miners. If you have the chops in question and you are not one of these three, please, shave now or prepare to have them busted.

Rock Your Baby – George McCrae

Rock Your Baby – George McCrae

Rock Your Baby - George McCrae

George McCrae is a phenomenon, the “King,” and the “Acknowledged Leader” of the soul revolution! George McCrae’s talents go much deeper than a flash in the pan-one time super star, his unique style, his universal appeal and his devotion to perfection have placed him in the position of continuing popularity in more then 82 countries for nearly three decade. Talent has taken this popular performer on International Performance Venues –  three world tours with critics raving at every performance and audiences screaming for more.

Since his smash hit “Rock Your Baby” rocketed him to fame in 1974, George has set the music world on fire with hit after hit. Two platinum singles, two platinum LP’s and fourteen gold records. Top music awards from all over the globe have attested to this amazing vocalist’s popularity and talent.

George McCrae, the innovator, spearheaded the whole “Miami Sound” which became the nation’s disco taste and the record that set the standard for every other pop recording artist to follow was “Rock Your Baby.” Certainly the record of 1974 around the world, that one song sold in excess of 52 million copies making it one of the biggest selling pop records in history. Voted the “No. 1 Single of the Year by Rolling Stone Magazine, Record World, British’s Cash Box and the Dutch Music Poll. “Rock Your Baby” remained a number one hit on the charts in more than 82 countries for months.

George received the coveted “Luxembourg Golden Lion Award for outstanding Achievement by a Foreign Artist in Germany,” (Frank Sinatra is the only other U.S.A. Recipient of this award). George was a 1974 nominee for the Best Male R & B Vocalist at the prestigious National Academy of Recording Arts and Science.

The power of a super hit record to create international stardom for a new artist has never been more clearly evident than in the case of George McCrae.

Born the second oldest of nine children on October 19, 1944 in West Palm Beach, Florida and the son of a retired policeman, George McCrae had his first singing experience in church at the age of six. As a teenager he sang with the Roosevelt High School Glee Club and eventually formed his own group, the Jivin’ Jets, before joining the U.S. Navy in 1963. Back on civilian street, four years later, George sang in clubs and lounges around Florida and after seven years of modest musical success and a couple of records, enrolled in college to study law enforcement. But music was still on his mind and he decided to record “Rock Your Baby” as one last shot. It hit the charts like a tidal wave.

Big Mountain – Baby I Love Your Way

Big Mountain – Baby I Love Your Way

Big Mountain - Baby I Love Your Way

Big Mountain evolved from a San Diego, Californian reggae band, the Rainbow Warriors, in the mid-80s. They toured the USA playing gigs to the uninitiated, introducing a diluted form of reggae to American ears. The multicultural line-up, featuring Quino (vocals), Gregory Blakney (drums), Jerome Cruz (guitar), Lance Rhodes (drums, percussion), Manfred Reinke (keyboards) and Lynn Copeland (bass), released 1992’s Wake Up on the Quality label.

A revamped line-up, featuring Quino, Copeland, Santa Davis (drums), James McWhinney (percussion), Billy Stoll (keyboards), Michael Hyde (keyboards), and leading Jamaican session player Tony Chin (lead guitar), convened to record their second album. In 1994, they released a version of Peter Frampton’s ‘Baby, I Love Your Way’, which when featured in the movie Reality Bites became an international bestseller, peaking at UK number 2 and US number 6. The single also featured a Spanish version, enabling the band to enjoy successful sales in the South American market. The hit was followed by ‘Sweet Sensual Love’, performed in both English and Spanish, although it only reached number 51 in the UK pop chart. Unity followed, selling over a million copies worldwide.

The band’s accomplishment led to successful appearances at Jamaica’s 1994 and 1995 Reggae Sunsplash festivals. They have since been unable to match the success of their first hit, but have continued to record with a number of Jamaica’s top session men, including Sly And Robbie and Handel Tucker. In 1995, the single ‘Caribbean Blue’ failed to make an impression in either the reggae or pop charts. Free Up featured singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow on co-writing credits.
