First of all, I'd like to say that I'll be able to start posting records again soon. In the mean time, it's giving me time to post a few things that I've been meaning to do. I spent my formidable years in the 80's and I was lucky enough to live by a city booming with an excellent music scene. Minneapolis, Minnesota in the 80's was it. It was a movement. Here are some of my favorites from the era. What a flashback. The picture above is from First Avenue.
Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

I've been told by some readers here that Volume 2 will be out June 5. I'm really excited about this one. It contains all of my favorite Martin & Lewis movies; Hollywood or Bust, Pardners, Artists & Models, Living It Up, You're Never Too Young. Strangely enough it's missing Money From Home and 3 Ring Circus... Not sure why.

Here we go. Volume 3 of Check The Cool Wax. Pardners :: The Best of Dean & Jerry At The Movies. Because the record labels or movie studios would never put this CD out, I had to take it upon myself. These guys are my favorite movie/comic buddies of all time. In my opinion at least, nobody comes close. Here are my favorite songs performed in their movies. Most are duets but a few are solos. Does anyone know if we are going to get a Volume 2 of their DVD sets?
THIS MIX HAS BEEN RETIRED. CAPITOL ACTUALLY PUT OUT A MARTIN AND LEWIS MOVIE ALBUM...

Since my Mac is still down and I can't currently rip in any albums, I'm switching gears and working on a Best of Martin & Lewis mix. All songs from their movies. The mix is actually done, just working on the art. Look for it in a few days. Lenny Dee will be back on with computer is up and running.
