greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 8, 2017

Another heavy period on the computer this with getting a Playlist for Picture Memories of Yorkville together. Just finished this project earlier this evening and posted a link to several groups on Facebook. It’s basically 29 videos covering hundreds of pictures collected over the years on assorted websites.

So, with that project finished, on to another for next week, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Moonglows


Here is another group from the 1950’s and that great music that came from that era. One of the groups that made a direct impression with their style of music is that of the Moonglows. Two leads from that group were Bobby Lester and Harvey Fuqua.

All these tunes from the Moonglows were found on You Tube with the ecxception of a few. I’ll go through a few of the tunes that were part of my favorites of all times and give them to you below.

Here is the link to the Moonglows and the 72 tunes that I found on You Tube. A few may be duplicates but most are later versions and Live sessions. Enjoy.

Most Of All

In My Diary

Please Send Me Someone To Love

I Knew From The Start


Over And Over Again

When I’m With You

Secret Love

See Saw

The Beating Of My Heart

Whistle My Love

That covers a few of the great tunes by the Moonglows. I may have missed a few of their great tunes but ave linked more that 60 tunes that are currently on You Tube. There are about ten plus which I came across a long time ago but are not part of the inventory on You Tube..

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Crests



Another group that falls into one of my favorite groups is that of the Crests, or, Johnny Maestro and the Crests. The lead singer of the Crests, Johnny Maestro, recently passed away and was overlooked by the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, unfortunately.

Fortunately, for the rest of us, we have all the recordings, and a few that I’m still looking for to share with everyone. My first memory of a tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of “My Juanita”. It was in the candy store on First Avenue on 91st Street and it would always be playing on the jukebox. Enjoy.

My Juanita by Johnny Maestro and the Crests

Another very popular tune form the Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of Sixteen Candles, that was the age of most of the people that loved Johnny Maestro and the Crests.

And the tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests that had you dancing with your Sweetest One at the moment was “Sweetest One”. Enjoy.

Also, there are a few other tunes that were sung by Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge. Here is one of those tunes.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Jazz Music


7-23-2017 1-16-20 AM

I have a true love for Oldies (Doo Wop) Music and have been calling all the posts Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups because almost all the music is centered around groups from the 1950’s. The majority of the music comes from groups from the 1950’s and some are with the lead singer for that group as they do a single after the group has met success. So, forgive the title, Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups, as that will be the primary title for all these posts.

Also, part of the music collection will feature another type of music or video theme every so often, and the title will stay the same but be included in a sub title. Pretty much like the above selection of Jazz music that I was introduced while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Jazz music collection is centered around a Jazz period from the 1930’s that caught my attention and it was that of Benny Goodman with Sing Sing Sing at the Jazz Concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. I still have the original LP album but was able to find the complete 12 minute recording on You Tube. Enjoy.

While in the U.S. Marines, I came across Timmy who introduced me to Ahmad Jamal and Nancy Wilson. Nancy Wilson, I’ll find out, but for now here is Ahmad Jamal with Poinciana. The other tunes is Moonlight in Vermont.

Just a quick intro to one of the Jazz great is that of Al Jarreau and with George Benson on one tune that caught my attention with “Breezin”. Once you listen to Al Jarrean you just have to hear more. Enjoy.

I just have to add Al Jarreau with Dave Brubeck with Take Five.

As to the rest of the tunes…enjoy. I’ll be adding more as memory comes back to me as to some Jazz greats.

Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Today’s Group – Gypsy Kings


Gypsy Kings

Introducing the Gypsy Kings

This is an unusual pick that came about when I was researching songs from the past. One tune that I like a lot is that of “Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul. One has to hear Billy Paul and his rendition of “Me And Mrs. Jones” to understand why I like it….just listen to the song.

“Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul

While looking at the the You Tube selection for “Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul, I noticed that there were a few other tunes recorded by other artists of “Me And Mrs. Jones”. One struck me as unusual because it had a picture of Billy Paul with Chico and the Gypsy Kings.I thought that it was strange but was interested in hearing that rendition of ?Me And Mrs. Jones just to see how it sounded.

I knew after I heard this rendition that I had to check to see if there were any more great recording artists that did something like this with the Gypsy Kings. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any more U.S. recording artists that recorded with the Gypsy Kings but did find a popular tune called Volare, and it was with Penelope Cruz with the Gypsy Kings. Take a look.

“Volare” by the Gypsy Kings wih Penolope Cruz

That’s my introduction to everyone with the Gypsy Kings. They have a unique style at the end of most of their tunes which I enjoy every time I hear some of their tunes. A few other tunes that they play that come to mind are: Bamboleo, Pena Penita, and Boualem, just tio name a few that I enjoyed. I know that I missed a few while putting this page together and I’ll add them to the Gypsy Kings page when I get a chance.
