Last Tuesday, Little Fish-Huge Pond hosted another vinyl night.

Check out the new flier created by Liz Watkins, local artist and the bar owner’s sister.

Vinyl Night

Certified Gold by Various Artists

Released in 1981 by K-tel.  From the late sixties to the late nineties, K-Tel sold compilation albums of current hits.   This particular double album contains “I’m Alright” by Kenny Loggins, “Whip It” by Devo, “All Out of Love” by Air Supply and “I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Prince.

I played both records.  One young lady complained about a song, but I didn’t give a shit.  I let it play anyway.

When it started playing, I couldn’t help singing along to Benny Mardones’ “Into The Night”.  You may not recognize the name, but you may definitely know the song when you hear it.

After going solo and divorcing the late Ike Turner, who she used to perform with, the album became Tina Turner’s breakthrough.

Arena by Duran Duran

vinyl night 12-11-2012 020

A live album released in 1984, it contains the hits “Hungry Like the Wolf”, “Is There Something I Should Know” and “Union of the Snakes”.

Also, it contains a new studio track “Wild Boys”.

Last week, a drunken idiot saw this album and went, “Duran Duran.  They’re a bunch of fags.”

Back in middle school, I remember the girls going crazy over “those fags”.

(Oh yea, included in the album package is a booklet containing photos of each band member.  I attempted photographing the booklet. Yet, that proved unsuccessful.)

Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D’Arby by Terence Trent D’Arby

vinyl night 12-11-2012 028

Released in 1987, the debut album contains the hits “Wishing Well”, “If You Let Me Stay” and my personal favorite “Sign Your Name”.

Incidentally, being the bar’s location is Sanford, Mr. D’Arby once lived nearby in DeLand.  DeLand is about twenty minutes away from Sanford. He still has family there.

By this time, the guitarist for musician Andrew W.K. was in the building.  A nice guy.  Yet, a big pain in the ass.

After showing him one of my albums, I had to cut Terence D’Arby short.  (By the way, his legal name is now Sananda Francesco Maitreya.)

Chicago 17 by Chicago

vinyl night 12-11-2012 033

Released in 1984, the album contains the hits “Stay the Night”, “Hard Habit to Break” , “You’re the Inspiration” and “Along Comes a Woman”.

As soon as “Stay the Night” came on, the guitarist and my friend Keith started singing out loud.

As usual, most of my information comes from Wikipedia.

More people showed up this week.  Because the music selections are usually from the seventies to the eighties, I suspect the night might become more popular with the over-thirty crowd.  As long as the night attracts people enjoying themselves, I don’t give a damn.
