Music Quest

There was a band in the 1980s called Big Daddy. They did 50s-style covers of top 40 hits. This may sound like a bad idea, but they were great. I especially liked their versions of “Sussudio” and “I want to know what love is”. Their stuff was unsurprisingly on Rhino Records. They had an album called “Cutting Their Own Groove” that was particularly fine.

Anyway their stuff is 581% unavailable. People sell their vinyl albums and their one or two CDs for an average of 70 bucks.

If anyone has digital files of them, or vinyl, or has seen some, let me know! I hunger for novelty.

  2. Good grief — I know I’ve got at least one of their early efforts on LP. It’s in those six boxes of LPs I haven’t opened since moving here two years ago — which says a lot. Now perhaps I will have to open them.

  3. I’ll see what I can do – I’ll keep a lookout, but for now the best I have is an excerpt from a Dr. Demento Show. I have one of “Hamster Love” and “Ice, Ice Baby”. They both make me grin.
    You’re warped. I like you.
