It's guest blogger time again, and here's a first - a Mr and Mrs post!
That snappy couple Devil Dick from The Devils Music (Psych Rock, Stoner Funk and Garage Goodies)and Jenn from Eye Eat Music (Punky nuggets, Hippy treats and Rocking Beats), have hand picked six - yes SIX rock-a-doodle dandies to fill your boogie boots, so over to that ol' Devil called Dick ...
We'd both like to thank Planet Mondo for having us do this little guest post over here at his world famous Mondo Atomic Blog!!! This is as it looks a HIS and HERS Collaboration for Your Funky Friday. Please Enjoy
Ladies first and she's giving you some Doo-Wop...
The Dells – “I want to Go Home”: Boy Group Harmonizers of the 50’s. Doo-Wop Born in a Chicago Burbs High School . Cut released late 1956.
The Dells – “I want to Go Home”
The Eternals –“Rocking in the Jungle”: Bronx Doo-Wop Groups 1st 45’ release originally titled “Christmas in the Jungle” which wasn’t working out so well since the holiday was over 8 months away. Careful where you step, you may cross a lion in your travels with this tune.
The Eternals –“Rocking in the Jungle”
The Coasters – “Sorry Gonna Have to Pass”: Storytelling R&B Vocal Group of the late 50s. They were outside the box when it came to Mainstream Doo-Wop, many would try to imitating their style in later years. But they are the Kings of weaving vocals around a story.
The Coasters – “Sorry Gonna Have to Pass”
The Devil's part of the show is 3 choice, little instrumental nuggets!
Jon Thomas – “Fat Back”: A nice little soulful instrumental R&B number with plenty of Killer organ and sax from1957

The Craftsmen – “Rock Along”: A kooky little rockin’ surf type instrumental from -1961: Plenty of crazy organ and twangy guitars a-go-go!!!

The Dartells – “Dartell Stomp”: Another Great Rockin’ Instrumental this time from 1963! More killer organ work, pumping bass and a driving drum beat and break that doesn’t quit!
