Music

Today on the Rockhouse, we pay tribute to one of the truly great artists in the pantheon: Howlin’ Wolf. As we mark this, the 100th anniversary of his birth, we focus the playlist on his early recordings made with Sam Phillips at the Sun Studio. A note of thanks to the folks at Opus 19 Music for giving us permission to indulge in this extended throwdown.

Hour 1 mystery… were The Celestials in fact The Skatalites? All I have to go on is youtubes of a pair of 45s I listened to recently, one, Llans Thelwell his Celestials’ Mughead Ska, on BMN, and the other a Studio 1 45 of The Skatalites’ Dragnet (classic Tuuuummmm-Tadum-tum… intro, but leading into an entirely different tune). Thing is, both recordings are of the exact same track! Fill me in, skassengers! (capt2much yahoo . com) We also observe World Cup fever in hour 1 with what we've learned is a favorite footballing anthem, as performed by the *Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra...* _You'll Never Walk Alone._
Sherwood B. Funn saluted this Sunday's Wave Project J-pop special _and_ a change in the weather (rains are coming down... ) with a pair of *Shiina Ringo* vocals, and delivered exotic goodies from *Arthur Lyman* and *Les Baxter,* and got spacey with a weird pair of *Raymond Scott* gems with his *Secret 7.*
The 4(+2)
4 went Women Of Ska, incorporating Jazz Jamaica All Stars’ big-band Lollipop. Fulla hot lixx!
