Bobby Goldsboro (born January 18, 1941) is an American pop and country singer-songwriter. He had a string of pop and country hits in the 1960s and 1970s, including his signature No. 1 hit “Honey”, which sold over one million copies in the United States.
“Summer (the first time)”, a 1973 reminiscence about a 17-year-old boy’s first sexual experience with a 31-year-old woman, was a Top 25 hit in the U.S. and reached number 9 in the UK. Using a repeating piano riff, 12-string guitar, and an orchestral string arrangement, the song was suggestive enough to spark some controversy. A follow-up, “Hello Summertime”, was written by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway and hit No. 14 in the UK in September 1974.
Poco is an American country rock band originally formed by Richie Furay, Jim Messina and Rusty Young. Formed following the demise of Buffalo Springfield in 1968, Poco was part of the first wave of the West Coast country rock genre. The title of their first album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, is a reference to the break-up of Buffalo Springfield. Throughout the years Poco has performed in various groupings, and is still active.
Crazy Eyes is the fifth studio album (and sixth album overall) released by the American country rock band Poco. Released in 1973, Crazy Eyes was the album with which founding member Richie Furay ended his original tenure with the group.
This week on The Vinyl Resting Place – we’re twice as good (or bad, depending on your point of view). As a way of introducing a new feature we hope to present each week, We are playing 2 complete quadraphonic LPs as well as a smattering of tracks from various LPs of the 70s.
Here’s the neat thing about this type of Quadraphonic recordings – they were designed to be compatible with standard stereo playback/broadcast – BUT – you can still experience the effect if you listen to the show either through headphones (the phase shifting tricks the brain into thinking sounds are coming from behind you) – or if you play the show through a modern surround sound system.
So we’ve gone with the greats – hour 1 we offer up the complete Dark Side of the Moon LP by Pink Floyd. Never released in the US, so we had to send to Australia for our copy.
Hour 2 – we play the the complete Greatest Hits album by Sly and the Family Stone (we’ll even throw in a bonus hit or two).
Finally – our third hour together offers up some classic tracks with mixes you are probably only familiar with, if you’ve been a loyal listener (or know either one of those who are).
So join the fun – and starting next week, you’ll be subjected to tracks mixed for quad that you can only hear on The Vinyl Resting place – because we’re taking the multi track master tapes, and doing the mixing ourselves.
