103, back from the Bermuda Triangle!

Hi.
As my faithfull friend, reader, listerner & reactionist
Crawfish mentioned, post 103 had gone off the grid alltogether...
so here's a repost, hope you - if you missed it - will enjoy it!
-
Never thought that an Arctic Monkey's song could be THIS funky!
The whole Baby Charles album is funky as hell btw!
Think Alice Russell kinda quality...
-
Ofcourse the Mingus song by Jeff Beck is standing strong,
the song originally was a tribute to the late Lester Young.
-
The surf classic gets the "plenty of horns" NCC live workout,
always nice, at once I'm back in Pulp Fiction...
-
And yes, even a Gibbs brothers song can be done the right way,
as this version by these guys from Spo Dee O Dee prooves.
-
Lou Reed's most famous song gets a very jazzy,
mellow & laidback treatment from a great sounding lady and band.
-
Finally a guy doing one of the songs Bobby Gentry was famous for.
-
Enjoy.

why the heck didn't you CLEARLY shout on your site that you have a Misirlou Version that I don't have!! I blame you! This is essential for me, whatever quality. If you need a GREEK original (check wiki), I'll e-mail it to you
