Twanging Tuesday # 23

Most of the songs I posted in this series are very old and nearly forgotten from the 50s and 60s. Today’s song was from a musician who can celebrate his 70th birthday today. He formerly played blues with his band Love Sculpture and reworked classical pieces like Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance as a speed-crazed rock number or Georg Bizet’s Farandole. After the split of the band he worked at the wall of sound in memory of Phil Spector. Then in the early 70s he turned into classic Rock and Roll. Since this time he publishes records in those he acts as the keeper of classical rock music. On his records he played a lot of twanging tunes. This one is a cover of Bill Murray’s Trouble Boys, released in 1978 on Trax on Wax 4.

Enjoy and happy birthday Dave
