Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition V

Comments Off

The final installment in our week of handpicked, high-quality double shots starts and ends with two Impound favorites – Dan Fogelberg and Frank Zappa. While it may seem incongruous to some to put these artists on the same mix it’s this kind of juxtaposition that rock ‘n’ roll is all about. Rock is the BIG tent that welcomes all, the stragglers and the estranged as well as the orthodox and eager to please. It’s where country can bed down with blues and there are no laws on the books against it. This one has 6-7 of DI’s All-Time Favorite Songs on it, too. We’ll let you guess which ones. Thanks for taking this ride with us. We’ll have to do it again sometime. Oh, one more thing…

“Opie must die!!!”

Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition IV

Comments Off

Continuing to give ya what market-testin’, status quo program directors just won’t, the Impound digs into dusty grooves to bring you some late 60s keepers from Traffic, Steppenwolf and the ever-under-appreciated Spirit before cranking up the electric guitars with Robin Trower, Montrose and Nazareth, and then heading South – literally and figuratively – with Skynyrd celebrating the thing the ladies “love the most” and talkin’ some sensible political skepticism before Patrick Simmons shows he and The Doobie Brothers had the blueprint for half of Kenny Chesney’s stupid country-island reverie hits way back in 1972 – and Tom Johnston, no slouch himself, delivers one of DI’s favorite deep tracks, a blues that gets string section basted and lovely in the tail section. But, we kick this chapter off with long forgotten U.K. powerhouse Stray working up some Blue Cheer-like mojo.

And below, that’s a young Helen Mirren in garter belt and stockings taking a carousel twirl. This is DI’s definition of an E-Ticket attraction. If this can’t spark an orgy then we’ve been very poorly informed about orgies.

Mix Tape: Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition III

Comments Off

Still rockin’ as a Camaro with bad springs but sliding into smoother, more sophisticated fare as we move from Heart, Ted Nugent (the way we like Ted – with his mouth shut and someone else doing the singing while he abuses his guitar skillfully) and Black Oak Arkansas into the creamier sounds of 10cc, Steely Dan and Gerry Rafferty. We’d recommend a freshly rolled number and a crisp California white to accompany this segment. Our caravan departs from Boston but there’s still time to hitch a ride…

Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition II

Comments Off

Our fantastic voyage of twin tuneage continues with a stable of artists especially poorly served by commercial classic rock programmers including fab songs from The Rolling Stones, KISS and Fleetwood Mac you will likely never hear on the radio. Seriously, if “A Whiter Shade of Pale” is all you’re familiar with in the Procol Harum catalog then you’ve got treasures galore awaiting you on under-served masterpieces like A Salty Dog, Shine On Brightly and many more albums from one of the smartest, darkest bands to emerge from the 60s British Rock explosion. Trust ol’ DI on this one. We wouldn’t steer you wrong unless you asked us to…

Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition I

Comments Off

Balls thwack firmly against the proverbial wall in the first installment of a weeklong celebration of the vintage FM radio staple of the double shot, back-to-back scorchers from a single artist. This double-shot-o-thon runs a staggering 100 songs deep (okay there’s a few triple shots to prove the axiom that there’s never too much of a good thing…alright, alright, alright), and we’ll be dishing it out in digestible chunks for the next five days. We hope you’ll take the full journey into deep cuts this week, beginning with an era-situating corker from the Frank Zappa produced Good Singin’, Good Playin’. Yeah, the Grand Wazoo worked with Grank Funk.

”You’re locked on the clock/ You’re ready to blow/ And nobody knows.”

Blue collar rock ‘n’ roll for hard working Americans. Keep faith, there’s some respite and peace at the end of our toils, if only a freshly rolled number and a song or two to make us smile.
