Route 66

Hosted by:

Mike Wolke

A music mix of various styles set to a theme, including 1930′s jazz/blues/country, bluegrass, alternative rock, blues, gospel, soundtracks, etc.

Route 66 explores the vast origins of hip music. The show is a celebration of the history of American music. It’s like splashes of musical color, and I’ll play everything from rural blues to a ’60s soul song to a country song. I see just this wonderful, rich, colorful tapestry of music that’s been woven” by American music. Music from around the world that influence the current state of American music and vice versa will also be heard.

    Great show today, Mike, on the Stones 1963-65. Some great favourites but also a few tracks new to me. You mentioned that “Fortune Teller” was withdrawn from sale soon after its release as their second single. That may have been in the US, as I have an Australian pressing released, I believe, in 1966. Mine is a “promo” with its “Sample Record – Not For Sale” sticker, and tagged as being the property of Radio 5SE, (Mt Gambier, South Australia). It sounds wonderful! Will play it next time you are round my place. Take care.

    • Thanks Domico. The version you have is from Got Live if you want it from 1966. The studio version was release and recalled in 1963:

      Tracklist Hide Credits
      A Poison Ivy
      Written-By – Leiber, Stoller*
      B Fortune Teller
      Written-By – Neville*
      Credits
      Producer – Michael Barclay (2)
      Notes
      On both labels: “Production: Michael Barclay for Impact Sound”

      The Rolling Stones recorded two versions of “Poison Ivy” on 16 July 1963. This is the second version, with percussion during the chorus, and the first version (without percussion) is the one which appeared on the “The Rolling Stones” EP (Decca DFE.8560) in 1964.

      This record had been scheduled in 1963 as The Rolling Stones’ second single. However it was withdrawn before release. Some copies had been made, though. Instead, I Wanna Be Your Man / Stoned (Decca F.11764) became the second Rolling Stones UK single.

      The two tracks from the withdrawn single were eventually released on the 1964 Decca “Saturday Club” compilation (LK 4583).

      For the first time ever, ABKCO Records is releasing all mono studio recordings released by The Rolling Stones in the 1960s in one unique historic collection.

      Exclusive to uDiscover in 2016 was a ‘Super Deluxe Collector’s Bundle’ of ‘The Rolling Stones In Mono’ box set, which included nine Limited Edition ‎7″ 45s (each limited to 1,000 worldwide) replicating classic Rolling Stones singles with local artwork and rare tracks in mono. The 7″s were available individually in stores across the world (Eg: The UK style packaging of ‘Poison Ivy / Fortune Teller’ was available at HMV stores in the UK), with a very limited quantity of all 9 x 7”s available only on uDiscover when pre-ordering the Rolling Stones In Mono box sets.

      For the 2016 pressing of this 1963 withdrawn single see: The Rolling Stones – Poison Ivy
      Glad you enjoyed the show. Let’s meet up again soon for a drink or meal or coffee or some such. Mike
