eYeGeYeYe presents: Sophisticated Savage, pts. 8 - 10


This is the third time I present tunes I file under „Sophisticated Savage“. If you dig the Lux’ & Ivy’s installments or the Buttshakers series, there’s a good chance you might dig this set as well. Sounds come from the borderline of Soul, Novelty, Tamla Motown, Rockabilly, Ska and even C&W (if there is such a borderline area, that is). I think that Ooh Poo Pah Doo and Hokey Pokey are best examples of what you’re gonna hear here (although I admit they might lack of sophistication). What I like a lot is that the menu is offered by black and white musicians in equal parts, a quite unique thing in the various pop music genres. You will be stunned to know that our sound race through the wacky wild times starts as early as 1957! Let’s kick off with an Italian girl out of NYC and her great ‘61 version of Fred Buscaglione’s "O Guaglione" from 1956. And if you got no hair, than go get a wig!
PS. Many tracks were posted by Johnathan Toubin at www.youtube.com/user/newyorknighttrain , hats off!
