Yo Alan! Here's Joe Jones doing "California Sun" in 1961

The Riverias was the highest charting version, at #5 in 1965, one of the first singles I ever bought in my life

Ther Ramones covered it in 1977 on LEAVE HOME.

Alan Dorey

Frank - that's very interesting indeed: I had thought that The Ramones might have taken California Sun from somewhere, but didn't check it out. The Rivieras version from 1965 is pretty interesting stuff, but it's just another of those big-selling US numbers that never appeared over here. Thanks for the background info - I learn something every day, which is as it should be!

Frank Lunney

I always learn so much from your show, Alan, I thought I'd reciprocate with a bit a kowledge buried in the fog of my youf when I heard you refer to the "original" by The Ramones. I'd guess you didn't remember the cover version Annette Funicello did in 1963? (This isn't a video ffor the song - duh - but a compil;ation of clips from her various films & TV appearances:

Jeff Suter

What a great show. Thanks for including my minor little suggestion. I have seen Babe Ruth, my that takes me back. Filthy Boy reminded me a little bit of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. But the highlight(s) was Stone the Crows.

Alan Dorey

Jeff - thanks indeed for the kind words about this week's little epic programme: it's always a pleasure to get great suggestions and then be able to include them!
