I've always liked the expression I Ain't Fattening Frogs For Snakes even though I'm not altogether sure what it means. The Larks try their best to explicate this for me but wind up with a kind of cyclical redundancy that is none the less bluesy, gospely , and all together great.
Be Bop Wino has kindly posted "Up With the Larks: The Uptempo Apollo Recordings 1951-1955 featuring such provocatively titled cuts as: "Eyesight to the Blind" "Little Side Car" "Honey From the Bee" , "Coffee, Cigarettes and Tears", and the classic "My Reverie".
To these ears it sounds like the place where jump blues meets close harmony gospel singing and nobody cares about any sort of boundries, secular or not. Highly reccomended. I'm off to fatten a frog for a snake, just one could'nt hurt, right?
