  1. Some good stuff…some strange stuff. Love You’re No Good, Boogie On Reggae Woman, anything from Olivia, Can’t Get It Out Of My Head, Lady Marmalade, Mandy…

    Doctor’s Orders? Disco Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes? Your Bulldog Drinks Champagne? Good lord…

    Minnie Ripperton and Maria Muldaur…EEK. Glass shattering.
