This is a cover version of Dale Hawkins` "Susie-Q" from 1957, but the CCR version is spelled without the hyphen, so the two versions will not show up in the same title search unless the search word is only "Susie."

Sequenced by: single
Honored by: RS DM DG
 
An amazing song, with great lyrics, a superb vocal performance, and an unforgettable sound. As heard in the mono mix, the music`s bottom end is urgent and commanding - an insistent fusion of drums and bass driving the song relentlessly as Marvin`s voice plus strings, horns, and background vocals soar and dance above. In contrast, the stereo mix presents drums on the left and just about everything else on the right, spreading out the sound horizontally. The result is still exciting to hear - how could it not be? But the spatial split of drums and bass neuters the heartbeat of this recording, sacrificing one of its greatest virtues. (Nevertheless, as a foregone conclusion, most younger listeners prefer to hear stereo over mono versions of all vintage recordings.)

One of the greatest differences between mono and stereo mixes of all Beatles songs is "Helter Skelter." The stereo mix clocks about 4:30, famously ending with "I`ve got blisters on my fingers!" The mono mix comes to an apparent end at 3:08 and then continues with a heavy riff, fading by 3:39.

"I Want to Take You Higher" became an anthem after its unforgettable performance at the Woodstock festival. It was first released as a single on the B-side of "Stand!" two weeks prior to the release of the "Stand!" album in April 1969. At that time it gained little traction, charting weakly on its own 6 weeks later. "Higher" was then re-issued as a single in late spring 1970 when the Woodstock movie and soundtrack were released. At that time, competing singles by Sly & The Family Stone and by Ike & Tina Turner diluted each other`s chart success.

"Hot Buttered Soul" broke sytlistic boundaries and established Isaac Hayes as a successful recording artist in his own right after a very successful career as a Stax label songwriter for Sam & Dave and others. It was #1 on the R&B albums chart for 10 weeks. The album version of his cover of "Walk On By" ran just over 12 minutes. The timing here is for the single edit.

A 7:00 version of "Funky Drummer" appears on the 1970 album "In The Jungle Groove" and on the Star Time CD box set. The ten-second Clyde Stubblefield drum solo at the end of Part 2 is claimed to be the most-sampled musical element in all of hip-hop. Public Enemy used it as part of its basic rhythm track throughout "Fight The Power." Chuck D. says "sound of the Funky Drummer" about 12 seconds into this excerpt. Once you`ve listened to the drum solo a few times it`s easier to isolate it from the other elements of "Fight The Power`s" rhythm track.

Stewart`s first solo album made a brief appearance at the bottom of the pop albums chart in December 1969 and then dropped off for a few months. I`ve slotted it with its reappearance in the spring. It re-charted again and reached its highest chart position in February 1972 after the massive success of "Maggie May" and the Every Picture album in summer and fall of 1971.

The "Ziggy Stardust" album has ranked among the top 20 (U.K.) or top 40 (U.S.) of all-time in critics` polls, but it was only a minor hit in the U.S. when released in June 1972, peaking at #75 in April 1973. I slotted the song arbitrarily in late October 1972, when the album first broke into the top 100 of Billboard`s chart.

In 1969 this innovative song was a #5 pop hit for Bowie in England, but it failed at the time even to reach the Hot 100 in America. Hearing it for the first time about 6 months after Elton John`s "Rocket Man" had peaked, American radio listeners may be forgiven for originally mistaking the song for a response to or echo of John`s hit.

How to date this song? First recorded in 1970, the full-band version and the "Pieces" album on which it appeared were recorded in April 1971, released soon thereafter, but not reviewed in Rolling Stone until July 1972. The song was the B-side of a single that never charted. I`ve slotted the song here based on the album`s sole appearance, for six weeks, on the Jazz Albums chart nearly a year later.
