Watched BBC FOURS Reggae Special tonight …

and realized again, how good is that SKA beat sound ?…

Reminded me of the old daze

Me, the BOSS and me old mate Scottie …

we toured Croydon in my white convertible Ford Consul

with the Wine Red leather upholstery

picking up the skirt at the old haunts

dressed in my made-to-measure and £70 hand made brogues … This in 1970 ! …

… Or dressed in my Levis, braces, Docs and original Ben Shermans.

CROYDON SUITE and the TUESDAY and FRIDAY  DISCO Nights,

CRYSTAL PALACE HOTEL, the BULL at Esher,

the PINEAPPLE at Old Kent Road, the amazing TELEGRAPH at Brixton,

There wasThe SHIP at Croydon where I got my nose broken,

Streatham LOCARNO where I took my first real girl friend

and the PURLEY ORCHID which was a bit dated really but had

some very different ladies …

ggg

… Shame they couldnt find some of the real

skinhead classics on the Reggae Special ~

Max Romeo’s WET DREAM, THEM A LAUGH AND A KI KI KI,

Phillis Dyllon, Toots and the Maytals ~ WATER MELON

– my own personal favourite.

Used to play my 7″ Reggae vinyls till they had holes in, 

on a portable slot record player I bought in London  

near Tottenham Court Road … I never ever saw another

one before or since … Used to visit all the reggae record

shops and listen to the soundz in the booths …

…  One next to CROYDON Station and a brilliant

Reggae shop near BALHAM Station which had nothing

but black customers but was owned by an old white guy

… So many great reggae

songs and so many girls in their

cute mohair suits and their cool cropped hair

with the pull over fringe …

… Themz were the dayze ….

I forgive you Theresa Green, I knew that wasn’t really your name

and Stephanie who slapped my face by the main bar at the Suite …

… I wasn’t three-timing you honest, I think it might have been 4! …

gangster aSSaSiN SPY

…—…

citations-grands-gangsters-4

 

once stated that I was a gangster

I didn’t protest I didn’t struggle

as I might have once bared or even cared

how could I with my mean streak?

a cruel streak, a grey streak,

a dark streak, bloodied and gristle

like something you might pass

to the edge of your plate unwanted

but I loved my mothers cuddle

imagined, felt or struggled

we always left strained and muzzled

and here we are as a group of filings

drawn to a north pole magnetic

a candle burning shining hope

and warmth for our hearts ease

so easy to please filled honestly

yes with emotional disease

and everything is a named disease

a disease labelled and sorted

a love true tied and thwarted

like limbs bound aborted

silent feeling rushing into a green sea

and in the sea bathing the sparkled moon

shook its fist and waved its anonymity

like paving stones in the desert

like sun flares cavorting golden

like maids abandoning discretion

bronze warriors laying down arms

for a brief fleeting and then sober

hard heavy and cruel no one is better

for a life lived with no art no heart

The great painter studied the old paintings of Masaccio in the city of Florence, and what he saw in the works of Leonardo and Michelangelo inspired him to study even more intensely, so that there followed a striking improvement in his style and skill. Raphael was especially fond of Fra Bartommeo of San Marco, who was among his circle of friends in Florence and whose use of colours he greatly admired and tried hard to imitate. In return, Raphael taught this good priest the principles of perspective, of which the friar had formerly been ignorant.

INtEResTiNGly  thE gROUp ~ The ROnnETTes – were a 1960s girl group from New York City, best known for their work with producer Phil Spector. The group consisted of lead singer Veronica Bennett (later known as Ronnie Spector); her older sister Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley. The group began singing as teenagers in Spanish Harlem where they grew up with their official recording career beginning at Colpix Records in 1961.

In March 1963 the group was signed by Phil Spector’s Philles Records, where they reached the peak of their success.

Becoming one of the most popular girl groups of the 1960s, they placed a total of eight songs on the Billboard Top 100, five of which became top forty-hits. Some of the group’s most famous songs include .. . “Be My Baby“, “Baby, I Love You“, “(The Best Part Of) Breakin’ Up“, and “Walking in the Rain.”[1]

In late 1964 the group released their only studio album, the now classic ~ Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes Featuring Veronica ~ which ranked number 427 on Rolling Stone’s “Five-Hundred Greatest Albums of All Time.”[2])  (this izz exerpt from WIKIPAEDIA zweepz – aNd not my own wurks)

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

lyrics  (C.King/G.Goffin)

Tonight you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?
Is this a lasting treasure?
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Can I, can I believe the magic of your sigh?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I’m the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?
I’d like to know that your love
Is a love I can be sure of
So tell, tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me?
Will you still love me?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

★ ★ ★

“Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, also known as “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King and originally recorded by The Shirelles. It has been recorded by many artists and was ranked among Rolling Stone ‘s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time at #125. The song is notable for being the first song by an all-girl group to reach #1 in the US. In 1960The Shirelles released their version with “Boys” on the B-side. The single’s first pressing was labelled simply “Tomorrow”, then lengthened later. However, Owens recalled on Jim Parsons’ syndicated oldies radio program, Shake Rattle Showtime, that some radio stations had banned the record because they had felt the lyrics were too sexually charged. This version of the song is currently ranked as the 126th greatest song of all time, as well as the best song of 1960, by Acclaimed Music.

(Do-lang, do-lang, do-lang)
(Do-lang, do-lang)

He’s so fine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Wish he were mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
That handsome boy overthere
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
The one with the wavy hair
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
I don’t know how I’m gonna do it
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
But I’m gonna make him mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
He’s the envy of all the girls
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
It’s just a matter of time
(Do-lang-do-lang)

He’s a soft [Spoken] guy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Also seems kinda shy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Makes me wonder if I
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Should even give him a try
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
But then I know he can’t shy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
He can’t shy away forever
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
And I’m gonna make him mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
If it takes me forever
(Do-lang-do-lang)

He’s so fine
(Oh yeah)
Gotta be mine
(Oh yeah)
Sooner or later
(Oh yeah)
I hope it’s not later
(Oh yeah)
We gotta get together
(Oh yeah)
The sooner the better
(Oh yeah)
I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait
To be held in his arms

If I were a queen
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
And he asked me to leave my throne
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
I’ll do anything that he asked
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Anything to make him my own
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
For he’s so fine
(So fine) so fine
(So fine) he’s so fine
(So fine) so fine
(So fine) he’s so fine

[Fades]

(So fine) oh yeah
(He’s so fine) he’s so fine
(So fine) uh-huh

In contrast to other Motown groups such as The Supremes and The Marvelettes, Martha and the Vandellas were known for a harder, R&B sound, typified by “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave“, “Nowhere to Run“, “Jimmy Mack” and, their signature song, “Dancing in the Street” In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Martha and the Vandellas[1] #96 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. (WikIPAEdIa )

THe DIxIe CuPs : ~  The group hit the top of the charts in 1964 with “Chapel of Love,” a song that Phil SpectorJeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich had originally written for The Ronettes. The trio consisted of sisters Barbara Ann and Rosa Lee Hawkins; plus their cousin Joan Marie Johnson, from the Calliope housing project in New Orleans. They first sang together in grade school. Originally they were to be called Little Miss and the Muffets, but were named The Dixie Cups just prior to their first release

By 1963 the trio had decided to pursue a career in music and began singing locally as the Meltones. Within a year Joe Jones, a successful singer in his own right with the Top Five 1960 single “You Talk Too Much,” became their manager. After working with them for five months, Jones took them to New York, where record producers / songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller signed them to their new Red Bird Records.

Be My BaBy

The Ronnettes

The night we met, I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance, I’d never let you go.
So won’t you say you love me,
I’ll make you so proud of me.
We’ll make ’em turn their heads every place we go.

So won’t you, please, (be my, be my baby)
Be my little baby, (my one and only baby)
Say you’ll be my darlin’, (be my, be my baby)
Be my baby now, (my one and only baby)
Wha-oh-oh-oh.

I’ll make you happy, baby, just wait and see.
For every kiss you give me I’ll give you three.
Oh, since the day I saw you
I have been waiting for you.
You know I will adore you ’til eternity.

So won’t you, please, (be my, be my baby)
Be my little baby, (my one and only baby)
Say you’ll be my darlin’, (be my, be my baby)
Be my baby now, (my one and only baby)
Wha-oh-oh-oh.

So come on and, please (be my, be my baby)
Be my little baby, (my one and only baby)
Say you’ll be my darlin’, (be my, be my baby)
Be my baby now, (my one and only baby)
Wha-oh-oh-oh.

(Be my, be my baby), Be my little baby.
(My one and only baby), oh,
(Be my, be my baby), oh,
(My one and only baby), wha-oh-oh-oh-oh.

Rio Ferdinand may have done more to boost Mario Ballotellis credibility than any man (or woman) on earth.

Ferdinands’ hostile reaction confirmed he is not reliable captaincy material, he is still as nieve as when he failed (or forgot) to turn up for a uniform drugs test and what we all sort of new anyway – Man United can’t hack it when the going gets  TOUGH … TOUGHTOUGH ~ BALOTELLI MAY NOW BECOME A CULT FIGURE within non Man United culture and he did it all with what will now become a BUZZ-SIGN to go alongside the ‘POSNAN’ – its the ‘WINK’
