Issue #185 - The Real Don Steele with Laugh-In’s Goldie Hawn and Judy Carne.
The night this Boss 30 debuted, I was writing down the song titles. I hadn't heard the new Creedence song before, and I missed what the title was. So naturally I assumed it was called "Rollin' on the River," so I wrote that down. I had no idea this song would end up becoming such a standard.
Shoot -- that's me again above. I get a trigger finger sometimes.
And I never knew Dion did a cover of "Purple Haze"--I guess that was before he got off the smack (and recorded "Your Own Back Yard", which will make the Boss 30 the following year).
Dion's "Purple Haze" (and yet another cover on the Boss 30 at this time) was trippy-sounding, but in a different way than Hendrix's was. His voice goes in and out on the word "sky" when he sings "'scuse while I kiss the sky-ee-eye-ee-eye."
