Tonight’s musical track is a short medley of songs Scot put together for a “Funhouse” demo in the mid-1980’s. This tape was probably made to give to booking agents. “Funhouse” line-up: Scot Halpin on lead-ythm guitar and vocals, Judy Tampa playing rhythm guitar and singing harmony, Edward Bachmann on bass and Leland Monagle is the drummer. Today’s medley contains snippets of Frankie Ford’s classic, “Sea Cruise,” Chuck Berry’s anthem, “Roll Over Beethoven,” and finally a bit of Hank Ballard’s fabulous, “Searchin,” being performed here by the fun and fabulous, Judy Tampa. I used the call her ‘the littlest girl in rock and roll.’
Today’s artwork is a pen and ink drawing done on the back of the cover of the Bristol Board pad cover. Another nice little medley.
