I have one called "May I come in" on Capitol. Really dig it. I guess this kinda early/mid period stuff of hers, cause I've read that she made funkier records in the 70's? Can yawl break it down fa me?Thanks!

    you want her first 2 releases on her own Dafodil label.

    I forget the title of them, but the second one does have "Vol. 2" in it's name.

    There is also the raer LP from '69 with "I like London in the Rain"

    I used to have the one she put out on Fontana in '67 "Soon its gonna rain" but someone gave me a lot of money for it, so now it is gone.

    Get the first 3 I mentioned and you'll be straight

    jazzy vocals, warm rhodes.

  • Jeff you hellza want Blossom Dearie Sings on Dafodil. It has lots of great tracks but I'm especially fond of "Shadowing You" where she sings, "we could be so happy, you, J. Edgar Hoover and me.... I'm following you.... I'm shadowing you...."

    cool. I really like her singing, so I guess I'd like almost anything she did.

    blossom dearie

  • "I'd love you, I wouldn't bug you, except whenever I can...."

    "There'll be no escape, I'm getting it on tape and video too...."

    I actually think it's "Happy as can be, you J Edgar Hoover & Me..." then, "happy as can be, you the secret service and meeeee...."


    TRIPPY

  • "i'm hip" is the joint. a couple of versions out there, but one really stands out ... cant remember what lp its on, pretty certain it is NOT the version on needlepoint magic.

    program related:

    Two recommendations:

    "Figure Eight" and "Unpack My Adjectives" from Schoolhouse Rock.

    Otherwise, find the work she did for Verve.

    I agree - "Blossom Dearie Sings" is really, really nice. Great arrangements.

    "London in the Rain" is a definitely a cool track from the Fontana album, "That's Just the Way I Want To Be" but considering that the LP moves for over $100 EASY, I'm not sure it's worth it. Here's a small edit I did on the song in case you want to hear what it sounds like. The intro drums are extended to a full break but I fade the song out before it's supposed to end.

    Compton's Most Wanted used that Schoolhouse Rock song she has for the Music To Drive By - Intro.
    That should be her piano playing.

    So the "figure Eight" track is only on the Schoolhous Rock LP and not on one of her regular albums??

    I think so.
    Does SchoolHouse Rock even have an LP?
    I have the SchoolHouse Rock 4 cd bookset and the DVD box. Ive never seen the rekkid.


  • Cough.

    (Don't worry, I pay to post here). The song I'm Shadowing You is on this album as well for some reason. Personally London In The Rain is the only thing I've heard by her that I really like.

    It exists. The Multiplication Rock soundtrack was on Capitol, ca. 1973.

    Yeah,when i heard her jazz joints later in life I instantly had flashbacks of the Ice skater cartoon.

    Diamond uses Figure 8 as well or another SHRock song? I forget? Red Light Green Light 123.
