Some songs you just can’t play too loud.

The theme from The Magnificent Seven, for sure, is one.

And P J Proby’s window busting rendition of Mission Bell is another.

If you only know the milder version by Donnie Brooks, hit play and prepare for blast off.

(Conscience prevails… be warned, it DOES open with a bang. )

PJP scored a major hit in Australia with this, even though it didn’t do much elsewhere. Lyn over at PopArchives has some information on the song, and the singer.

      Good old MF! I hope he’s keeping up with Tim as a reader even if he doesn’t comment.
      I miss Infidel Tiger and his regular “Suck my nuts!” smackdown on the trolls, too.

  3. Yep, good old MF.. Haven’t spent a lot of time at Blair’s “new”, now old place. Did I.T. go the Floss route, or did something terrible happen (fingers crossed that nothing did)
