Get Groovy Y'all

Without a doubt, On The Groovy Side is one of my absolute favorite Lennon Sisters albums. It's chock-a-block full of peppy pop tunes. Okay, back in 1967 the word "groovy" wasn't exactly synonymous with The Lennon Sisters, but with this lp the girls proved they could put their glorious harmonies on songs of the day and sound contemporary and fun. And groovy, of course!

Since I wanted to enjoy my vinyl collection without being attached to a turntable, I went to Circuit City and bought one of those players that lets you easily transfer old records to your pc. Now I can listen to this fun album wherever I want. Woot! I've uploaded all the tunes - click here and enjoy.


The above album cover is the re-released Ranwood version - it originally came out on the Dot label.

Highlights for me are Up, Up, And Away, Never My Love and Sunny. I love the opening horns on I Will Wait For You - I can't help but do my goofy, sixties dance. Shut up. The grooviness gets to me y'all.

This album also has Kathy's version of Ode To Billy Joe, which I wrote about earlier. I'm probably just way too much of a Bobbie Gentry fan to be objective about this song. I wonder what other Lennon fans think of Kathy's version.

Happy listening!

Sounds like you're gonna have a great time listening this way!

I too enjoy collecting vinyl albums of Mr. Welk and his music makers, and I have enjoyed downloading the tunes to my PC!

I also burn many of these songs to CD...I betcha you have done the same as well!

Absolutely. I am loving it. It's so nice to play the burned cds in the car, to and from work. :)

Hi,
I just found out about the Lennon Sisters blog. I really enjoy listening to the Lennons. I grew up wathing them on the Lawrence Welk show. I had their paper dolls when I was younger. I love all of their CDs. I used to have the Groovy Side LP and those songs are all great.

Consult with an asylum attorney and make sure that you
have enough time left on your visa status to ensure your stay after being denied.
Proving negligence is done through the evidence you provide
with your claim. After treatment, you lie in the hospital bed not knowing when you'll be able to go home.

If you feel satisfied by the answers your prospective Los Angeles
injury attorney gives you, go ahead and hire them as your attorney.
The most common causes that lead to an unhappy situation are:
negligent drivers, faulty driving equipment, unsafe roads or bridges, bad weather, malfunctioning
road equipment or lighting, wild animals and bad repairs.
If you are familiar with any other attorney who practices in another area, you can always ask him
for referral of an auto accident law firm.
