Roger Binninghof: "Over My Head"



Well, here I was, thinking about shutting down this blog. Just when I was sure that I wanted to call it quits, I went and found a record that I just had to get up here.

This is the kind of record that It's Great Shakes was made for, terrific song and almost no presence at all on the net. I only found mention of "Over My Head" on a couple Minaret discography listings and, even there, they misspelled the artist's name.

I posted this song on Facebook and Jeff Lemlich commented to tell me that Mr. Binninghof was a student at Vanderbilt University, who had a hand in several Minaret releases. Thank you to Jeff for that info.

Anyway, "Over My Head" is a garagey winner and another reminder of just how many great records are out there waiting to be discovered.

I dig it.

And don't go.

Todd,

As co-author of this blog, I agree with Westex and the other person who posted that this blog should stay around, if only to be able to check on the action of the other blogs we're connected to. If, however, you're totally burned out, hand it over to me and I'll continue it. I don't have sound capacity yet, but I can still do it. Otherwise I'll start my own music blog. Whatever the case, this blog still needs to keep going, at least in my opinion. Happy Thanksgiving and hope to hear from you soon.

Brian

That was great fun - I love the surface noise as well. It would have fit right into Nuggets. "Whoah!" Sadly his vocal performance just isn't mean and snotty enough, although I can see what he was aiming at.
