I was well initiated into Henry Cow by Lama Sphinx, and am grateful, but must confess that my go-to cow instrumental is:

 

 

I've heard that the famous Dutch cows are actually Polish and have been brought to the Netherlands after some terrible cow disease here centuries ago. Maybe all cows are Polish after all, even holy ones..

 

Anyway namaste, gasho etc..

The original recording of and old folk tune:

 

"Misirlou" · Tetos Dimitriadis, 1927

 

 

An instrumental jazz arrangement by Nick Roubanis was recorded first by Harry James and his orchestra in 1941

 

 

An even more popular version by pianist Jan August was released in 1947

 

 

A young southern Cal. surfing transplant who was fooling around with his Fender strat playing instrumentals as loud as he could (with his new Fender Showman amp that could seriously crank) for screaming young crowds , first heard the tune played at home on an oud. He rearranged it a little bit, adjusting speed and volume to taste.

 

Miserlou · Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, 1962

 

 

The song had a little revival in 1994 as background music for the rolling credits:

 

 

 The rest is history...of endless cover versions both before and after the Dick Dale release. Dick Dale was the King of Surfing Music, bona fide.

 

OT (?)

Water Baby Boogie - Joe Maphis (1960)

 

 

Supreme ...

 

Is it true we send signals into space hoping they might reach aliens? With embedded aspects of human history and so on? Well you know - the birds chirp, and the bees buzz, and pigs oink, and cows moo, and dogs bark, and cats meow. Well imho if we need, for alien consumption, an instance of what humans do - this is it. Lucky I'm not in charge of the space program, I hear you say. Lucky for you I'm not in charge, you hear me say. 😁

In The Mood - The Hawk aka Jerry Lee Lewis (1960)

 

 

In Vancouver, Lewis wasn’t heard on the local charts until a brief appearance with a tune called “Old Black Joe” which spent only two weeks on the CKWX chart in April 1960 peaking at #39. Nonetheless, later that year Jerry Lee Lewis had a Top Ten instrumental hit under a pseudonym, The Hawk. The tune was “In The Mood”. The song went to #10 in Vancouver in July 1960, and elsewhere only had a significant chart run in on WITH in Baltimore, peaking at #11.

In the Mood by The Hawk

“In The Mood” is credited with being composed by African-American jazz saxophonist, Joe Garland. He drew his inspiration from a pre-existing melody titled “Tar Paper Stomp” by bandleader, Wingy Malone. Garland’s “In The Mood” became a #1 hit for Glenn Miller in 1940, with lyrics added by Andy Razaf. The bands Joe Garland played for included Lucky Millender, Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines. Garland wrote a number of songs for Artie Shaw and for Les Brown. Garland went into semi-retirement in the 1950’s.

After “In the Mood” enjoyed local success in Vancouver, Jerry Lee Lewis had a #10 hit in the UK with  a cover of Ray Charles tune “What’d I Say” in the spring of 1961.
