I love this record. I have this record. I am still waiting, semi-patiently, for its CD release.

Somewhere back in the mid-seventies, during an evening of restless channel-flipping, I came across a serio-humorous PBS special about women (and men) in a changing American culture and a trio of young women singing a hilarious song about a chauvinistic businessman finally getting his comeuppance. I couldn't get the song--or the unusual name of the group--out of my head, and after a period of record store crawling finally hit paydirt.

The women were Helen Hooke, Anne Bowen and Pamela Brandt, collectively known as The Deadly Nightshade, which was also the name of their fine debut lp. They shared the vocals, played roughly a dozen instruments between them, and though with all the musical stylings I was never sure exactly to what genre it belonged--synthesizers and organs, fiddles, horns, banjos, stinging guitars, a washboard and even a flushing toilet(!)--was this rock? folk-rock? country-rock?--I loved their music unreservedly and all these years later "The Deadly Nightshade" is still one of my favorite records.

For me, the best of the best remain side one's forthright, lighthearted kick-off "Keep on the Sunnyside," the sweetly soaring blend of voices on the anthemic "High Flying Woman," the bitter comedy of "(I May Be Winnin' at Cards, But I'm) Losin' at Love" and the bluesy funk--yeah! FUNK! go figure!!--of the wittily ascerbic "Nose Job;" and side two's loopy, good-natured send-up "I Sent My Soul to the Laundromat," "Shuffle's" rollicking bounce (and angry edge), the wacky, just-for-the-fun-of-it zaniness of "Onions" and, best of all, the tune performed on the PBS special that stopped me in my tracks, the sly "Dance, Mr. Big, Dance.

Let me explain this, since the Amazon page doesn't. Deadly Nightshade were an group Felix Cavalerie (Rascals) produced, mid-70s. The music is basically pop-rock, with some really nice folk and R&B shadings. Think of very early Rita Cooledge, before she sold out, and it is not too far from that. But there are three vocalists.

The record is good throughout, but the highlight has to be the song called "nose job" which is a great, slick, funky number which actually gives the subject a much better treatment than it deserves. And you wanna know something? It is a great piece of R&B.

Someone should really take a chance on this. Who knows when it will be reissued, though it really should have already been.

(If the seller wants to give me 10% for the plug--a whole 57 cents, he knows where to find me.)
