Popular Culture (Music) 20100521. Mungo Jerry

Mungo Jerry was a sensation starting in 1970 because of its signature song, In the Summertime.  Now days, that is the only memory that most folks have about them.  This is unfortunate, because they actually were quite excellent.

Their initial LP, self named, is a classic, and I have it both in vinyl and on eight track.  That is right, I still have lots of eight track tapes, including Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends Hands of Jack the Ripper.  I used to have that one on vinyl, but a “friend” stole it from me.

The Who — an important band from the 1960’s ‘British Invasion’ — is scheduled to perform during the half-time show at this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts.  

Anyone who is a classic rock and music aficionado has to wonder: what accounts for the popularity of such rock groups formed almost fifty years ago?
