    BTW, for anal completists, the "hebert - herbert" track is actually:

    Randy Hebert - A Star Comin' On (from the "Take Me To Your Love" album)

    Forgive me.  It was late and I had consumed alcohol.

    If it's any consolation I fell asleep on the sofa and only woke up when the beer spilled in my lap.

    The wife hasn't noticed.

    Yet.

    Props go to West Coast 99 on Youtube.

    Spent hours listening to each and one of his Yacht Rock raers:

  • Great post! I've been embracing the westcoast genre as well. Here's one from Norway, Soft Rock that was recorded in Oslo and mixed in Burbank studios in the late 70's:


  • Sorry for any shameless promotion.I thought this might be cool to watch, I did a quick promo video for the Norwegian westcoast aor group LAVA from their Cruisin album from '81.


  • Another big favourite

  • I download and love these sounds, but do you not think without sounds of the padt we can't move forward to more of the future?

  • 'You And I' by the Bee's Knees is taken from their album 'Pure Honey'.
    And I don't know the song "herbert" by herbert. Both artist name and the title of the song may be different.

    Yes.  You are right:



  • Anybody else noticing the congruence of many, many of those song titles? I know there were whole decades in pop music where "love" was in half the song titles, but seems the smoothness has people talking love more than usual.

    I did mention this in the 4th poast above.  Discogs says it's a different record (same artist).  Were 'ludes the opiate of choice for Maximum Musical Inspiration in the Marina?  (a la Wolf of Wall Street)?

    If there was any drug linked to the smooth, it had to be quaaludes.

    The drug, synthesized in the 1950s, was originally intended as an anti-malarial treatment, says James Adams, associate professor at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy. When doctors discovered what a great painkiller and sleep aid it appeared to be, they prescribed it for that instead.

    Soon, people discovered that it also released sexual inhibitions, particularly in men, and that when mixed with alcohol it produced a mellow euphoria. It also made it difficult if not impossible for an intoxicated woman to resist a man's advances.


  • And on that note, to kill the buzz (harsh the mellow? roughen the smooth?), apparently dr cliff huxtable himself was a fan of the 'ludes...
