Art Decade Report:

Click here to go to AD to check Delaney & Bonnie’s “Groupie (Superstar)”….this is the original version of the Leon Russell tune.  It was a big hit for the Carpenters in the 70’s.  Not sure why the Carpenters chose to cut the “Groupie” out of the title…Haaaaaaaa! 

Killer version…check the D&B cut.  Not sure if Eric Clapton actually played on this cut?  Anyone out there know for sure?  Nice post by AD.

taxxi-states-ofRock God Cred Report:

Click here to check Taxxi’s “I’m Leaving”….if you remembered “Cocktail Queen” from this album you will dig “I’m Leaving”.  From “States of Emergency”…one of those lost albums from the early 80’s.  Great tunes that rarely hit the airwaves these days on the classic rock stations.

Buy “Chequered Past”…greatest hits comp.  If you want “States of Emergency”…you may have to pay a little more for some vinyl.
