Little Bit O' Soul


Garage rockin' one-hit wonders Music Explosion issued a great song in 1967 and quickly faded from sight. While, branded one of the early bubblegum musical groups, A Little Bit O' Soul was a catchy tune that hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned Music Explosion a gold record. Highlights of this lip-synced performance include the drum-kit and the invisible organist...

Note to readers/listeners
This is the last 60s music post on nonamedufus. Tomorrow will be the final 70s post. But don't fear, I've created a music blog, accessible from the sidebar on this page called dufusdownbeat where I've moved all the musical content to.
dufusdownbeat is where you'll find my 60s and 70s weekly features as well as articles and clips from artists celebrating birthdays and other milestones and links to interesting music sites.
While humour and music remain my passions, I've merely decided to hive one off from the other and make each blog cleaner and more focused. I hope you enjoy the changes. And I hope you'll visit both sites. Thanks.

Please let me know where to go - I have really enjoyed your dig-ups on the 60's and 70's stuff. Most of this stuff was in my sub-conscious iPod for most of the last 40 years. Reading your postings has brought it out again. Loved this song, by the way. I will anxiously wait your expose on Music Machine's "Talk Talk".

I remember this song as if it were yesterday. Oh, it was yesterday...it's on my play list.

Congrats on your new blog, I'll see you there!

Good idea to split them up, and of course letting me know where the heck to go. This was yet another song I had never heard before, thanks for making me feel young..LOL

Little Bit O' Soul was a favorite of mine. Too bad they went down the tube so quickly. I thought they really had some good talent. Apparently song writing wasn't one of them.

Expat: I hesitate to tell you where to go but just click on the pic on my sidebar and, voila, youre there!

Me-Me: Great! You're my first visiter! Thanks and keep coming back.

Nipsy: Click on the sidebar pic. Are you saying I'm old, girl?

Don: Yeah, you got it. Too bad. I used to think this was such a cool song - as Nipsy would have me say - back in the day.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
