Back in the mid to late 1960s, local cabarets were the “it” spots for any DC youth who wanted to dance. One of the strongest of the DC cabaret groups, the El Corols, released the single “Chick Chick.” Check it out for an authentic slice of 1960s DC cabaret!
Nestled among the incredible funky tracks on the Meters’ first album is a surprisingly low-key & emotional cut, simply dubbed “Stormy.” Many years later, the track would be sampled on “Clear Blue Skies” by The Juggaknots.
The Aged in Harmony single, “You’re A Melody,” never ceases to blow my mind with it’s beauty. That basic guitar riff kicks it off, and by the time the strings come in, I’m pretending I can dance again. Fantastic.
Recently, I’ve been spending a good bit of time with go-go guru Max Kidd. Mizax and the Flizaps “Test Me” is one example of a plethora of forgotten works that a younger Maxx chose to involve himself in, long before go-go was just a way to refer to a local night club.
