: Some strange and unusual harmonica music.......
: An oldies station was playing a song called "My Boy Lollipop" the tune had some really cool harp.
: Later that night PBS Austin City Limits had Brooks and Dunn doing "Boot Scootin Boogie" with Kix Brooks
: blowin harp thru the vocal mic. Heard any harp lately?
FYI(and amusement), the harmonica on Millie Smalls'1964 hit "My Boy Lollipop" was played by Rod Stewart. Although I can't substantiate this at this moment, I have found some info from the Guinness Book of Rock Stars 3rd Edition about Rod Stewart's early days. In 1963, he was a vocalist and harmonica player. I think that it's a shame that the harmonica has fallen out of use by the early British hitmakers in the mid-late 1960's.
I enjoy reading your posts and as always,
Wish you success in your endeavors
