Razzle In My Pocket was the B Side to the original release of Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll Stiff Buy 17, released 26th August 1977. What do I win?

hi Julian

I think you win the privilage of being the first listener to get the right answer and possibly the only listener to bother replying. Well done!

Seems my bill is due and my billing information has changed due to the Amsterdam theft of my credit card on the Yo La Tengo tour last November. They could have let me know sooner.

Hopefully that's fixed now!

Hey, Eric....sorry I'm a bit late in commenting here....just heard this one. What a classic mix of tunes. This show is gonna wind up being one of my all-time favorites, for sure.

Regarding the track you start playing right before 'Razzle in My Pocket' (the one you start the contest with) - is it a Duane Eddy tune? Am I remotely close?

Hope the tour is going well. E

Eric , you must be psychic - I was listening to Radio Show 28, and thinking of great b-sides.
The first one that came to mind was `Razzle in my Pocket` at which point you played it.
Spooky.
And freaked me out (in a non-1960's way) in the bread aisle of ASDA .....

Erica - that's right, it's Duane Eddy, the b side of Dance With The Guitar Man. I think it's called Stretchin' Out. So you've won the prize too!

Just downloading this for my commute home from work tomorrow, but wanted to drop by and say thank you for the Del Shannon in the last show.

These shows even inspired me to start my own weekly music podcast back in January, which I assumed would fizzle out after a week or two, but I acquired a couple of die hard fans who see it as the highlight of their Saturday evenings and I haven't had the heart to let them down since.

Also enjoyed another reading from your book in the last show - soon you'll be able to make the whole of A Dysfunctional Success available as an audio book! Hope the US tour is going well and perhaps I'll find time to pop back with some comments relevant to this show after I've listened to it!

Even later comenting--Ithink I've enjoyed this instalment the best yet!
How about something from The Muffs on the show? Strangley enough Kim's guitar instrumental Jack Champagne almost sounds like a 60s B side!

Great show Eric.Steppenwolf now theres a much maligned band and yet that B side was a real cracker.So often the B sides outshone the A sides "Revolution","Baby youre a Rich Man".There was the Fairport B side to "Now be Thankful" that had the longest track title on record.Keep up the mix of songs and see you very soon.
