Well, I'm glad that all got sorted out.
Now we just have to get Julia's side of the story!
Maybe Julia is after that Million dollar Z.

Actually, Julia and I are no longer....'active'...together. We parted as friends and I gave her back all the stuff she left at my place. Maybe we can resume march at some later time, but I've just got too many things going on right now to distract me.

And my Z is up to $1,000,040.00.

Elder Colin, call Neon John and ask him if you can swing by with your TR when you get it sorted out.

Colin, here is a hard flashback for you;

Jimmy Jones singing "Handyman" in 1960 on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. All the kids are chewing free Doublemint gum.

There was something else interesting about this clip but I forgot what it was.....oh well, it might come to me later. :oops:

HEY, HEY, HEY!! :x Jimmy Jones and Jackie Wilson were the first two black singers who got me to dance ("dance") in the early '60s.

After the Browns' first TV LipSync to The Three Bells ("Little Jimmy Brown") in January 1959, Dick Clark picked up the LypSync concept and flew with it; prior to that the Bandstand kids had only danced to the records without having the singers appear in person. Hardly anyone had any LypSync experience in those early years, and the more time they spent with their backs to the camera, the safer the secret was. The Everly Brothers refused to even try LypSync; they performed live and in person on all their TV appearances thru the '50s and '60s.

Jimmy Jones had recorded "Handyman" on a separate track in an empty room, and it was edited together after he left the studio, so he never performed it in person before appearing on BandStand in Jan/59. You can tell he doesn't know what he's doing, and his dance looks unrehearsed. This might very well have been his first attempt at LypSync and public performance together.

Jackie Wilson gave LypSync all he had to give; he collapsed with a heart attack singing and dancing to "Lonely Teardrops" on Dick Clark's stage in the mid-'70s and died soon after.

But "Handyman", "Good Timin'', "Lonely Teardrops", "That is Why", "Higher and Higher" all got to me and I destroyed about half the furniture in my teenage bedroom learning to dance to them. Jimmy Jones danced better than I did, and got paid a heck of a lot more to do it!
