Bambi – Prince
Killer licks from second album where as he rides a winged horse billy-bollocks nekkid (both him & the creature) on the out of focus back cover, this shower of lesbian-sceptic hard rock lickage comes as slightly unexpected. His next album Dirty Mind would feature a young Lisa Coleman who went on to form a relationship with Wendy Melvoin in The Revolution so “Oi Prince – deal with it!”
This guy removes any live youtube output mighty fast but this one slipped through the net so enjoy it while it lasts. Solo heaven @2.22
Bee – Sugarcubes
Like most of their back catalogue this is utterly mental in their prime before Bjork went solo. Possibly written for the bride in Kill Bill?
Bernadette – Four Tops
Holland-Dozier-Holland penned Motown soul classic from ’67 back by the Funk Brothers about possessive jealousy and burning desire over his ladyfriend.
Bertha Butt Boogie – Jimmy Castor Bunch
“For your information Bertha had three sisters – Betty Butt, Bella Butt & Bashiiiba Butt”
Black Betty – Ram Jam
Riff-mania! Vid rocks too – just them going all guns blazing in full leather on some lucky bleeder’s front garden. Reeeally tough to choose between these two Bettys but in the end Black Betty just narrowly pipped Blue Oyster Cult’s Betty Lou’s gotta new pair of shoes.
Brenda – A Perfect Circle
“What else to be bathed in Brenda?” Not that I’m encouraging illegal downloading but click the above and see where it leads ya. Memphis Slim the blues pianist also has a fine song named Brenda but this just pipped it for me.
Other options would’ve included John Martyn’s Beverley; an instrumental quite probably named after his ex-wife. I’m loathed to even mention Ray Steven’s Bridget the Midget possibly not about Sly Stallone’s ex-wife Bridget Nielson.
Until next time…for Lady C’s
