I won't front,i just heard this song for the first time today,thank's to someone posting the video on YouTubeGreat songI'm not real familiar with Flaming Ember other than "Gotta Get Away" which of course was sampled by Diamond DWhat' some other songs that are good from these guys?
"Songs" is right, since their two albums are quite uneven. Here's some more:
"If It's Good To You (It's Good For You)"
"Mind, Body & Soul"
"I'm Not My Brother's Keeper"
"Shades Of Green"
"Don't You Wanna Wanna"
I also started a "Rare Earth Vs. Flaming Ember" thread some time back...
I might be wrong, but Im sure its a different group..The Embers are a Carolina band with lots of releases, a HUGE name in the beach music scene...Flaming Ember were from Detroit...
You're right. The Embers are (or were?) an established name on the beach music circuit, and "Faraway Places" was their signature song. Although the "Westbound #9" guys started out as the Flaming Embers[/b], this band is totally unrelated.
And the beach music scene is in the Carolinas, not Chicago. Down here in the Chi, we don't shag, we step.
I never read that much into it, but "Stop The World & Let Me Off" has a lyric where the lead singer discovers his girlfriend is bisexual...
yes, and a cheapie. always elicits inquisitive stares at the turntable. which came first, that or the ace jones that sounds really similar?
