OZZ AND HIS SPERLINGS - CAN YOU QUALIFY? b/w DADDY ROLLIN' STONE


As I will be unable to post anything for the next two days, I had to think about a record to post that is so high, so mighty, so POWERFUL that it had the potential to last the whole weekend. The decision was simple, this record could easily last all WEEK!

San Francisco's Jesse Osbourne is the OZZ in question here, and he released four singles; this is without contest the finest. "Can You Qualify?" gets the most attention, and I could never argue THAT point (it's one of those sides that to this listener simply CANNOT be bettered) but the OTHER side is pretty fine as well (and it's a different song than the Derek Martin/ Who/ etc classic).

from 1966...

wow! I can't believe I'd missed your blog until today. An outstanding achievement man - so much good music to explore! I've just started my own very modest blog over at http://scratchynoise.blogspot.com/
I'd be honoured if you'd consider including me in your blog list. All the best from sunny scotland, Duncan

"Can You Qualify" appears to be the b-side, is it so? I wish you would repost "Too Hot to Hold." I have a recording on cassette that I got off of Captain Weems' Mod Monday program 25 years ago. I'll try to dig it up and digitize it. I guess I should digitize all those Mod Monday shows.
