Marlene Dietrich - The Song Of Songs (2 short clips) (1932)


It seems we have a small contingent of 1930's fans from the post below.  Well, I had just stream captured this classic movie and really liked this song she sings so thought it belonged here.  Marlene Dietrich is listed as the first sex symbol in movies and she made over 50 films.  In 1991 my first year working after college I went to our German factory with four others to learn and launch a new product line of AC Drives having the new 1980's inverter technology and we hung out one night at a bar in Berlin on the famous Kudamm near our hotel and watched a German band quite enthusiastically sing a cover of 'Johnny B. Goode' so maybe hinting to us about Marlene's 'Oh Johnny' song shown here...such a classic...a Song Of Songs in my book the way she sings it!
Here is the final statue smashing scene to give some perspective on the first clip.  Her boyfriend had made a deal with a rich baron to let him marry her after she had fell in love with Lionel Atkins.

THE BOOMTOWN RATS - st LP 77 w A Tonic For The Troops LP 79 w The Fine Art Of Surfacing LP 79 w 12 EP 82 w V Deep LP 82


REPOST Request:  I'm sure you folks who watched MTV back when they had music on it (??) know Bob the singer here.  I grew up with a sister who had the 'Surfacing' record I would listen to as I played in her room.  Had never heard the first very punky album nor the others like the mature last album that is fine.  I think the song 'Dangerous Minds' is where my favorite Facebook group got their name.

VA- The Best Of O Records Volume One 2LP 89 w Volume Two Tape 89


This old Miami label is really unique, they had one guy Bobby O writing all the songs!  Eventually on the last song of Volume Two they struck it gold with the Pet Shop Boys 'Western World' overseas band along with Roni's hit from US in the early days.  I learned recently that CD's came out in this year so maybe that was why a dance label like this didn't grow and is not around today if this was not available early on in the hot new format.
Vol. 1 2LP:  https://www115.zippyshare.com/v/J0vL2tjp/file.html

Child Molesters - (I'm The) Hillside Strangler w Ace & Duce 7 78 w Wir Lieben Die Jugendlich Mädchen 12 EP 81 w The Legendary Brown Album LP 96


I had a request last week in a comment by Claude asking if I had any better quality rips on this group then he did and to post what I had so here we go.  The 7 inch from KBD (Killed By Death) blog is where I first heard of this L.A. band active from 77 to 82 and perhaps the best quality. The lead singer went by the name Ace Farren Ford and sings in the best of 'frat rock tradition like bands the Scotsmen, Men In Black (New Orleans), Drunks With Guns, The Novas (Da Crusher tune) or even the Pork Dukes.  My kinda bands for sure!  The Brown Album released posthumously is worst quality of the bunch I have at 128 kb/sec MP3 rate.  Thanks also to the old 7inchpunk blogspot and of course Felipe's Isksp defunct blogspot from Brazil as he always has all the good stuff!.  Please post your links if you have better recordings in the comments and enjoy!!  Few members on the break up formed 'The Mystery Band' and not sure if any releases are available, check out links enclosed.
