“SLAMMIN’ FANDANGO” – Jan Davis & The Spain Gang

                        LATIN POP INSTRUMENTAL

The Fandango is a gypsy dance style, included in most Flamenco dancer’s repertoire.  It’s also a guitar vamp accompanying dancers.  Here, Davis plays a rockin’ Flamenco lead guitar with intricate fingering all his peers appreciate, while he’s slammin’ this one home!  Flamenco purists may regard this as an insult to the craft, but Davis didn’t intend to insult…just to pump it up with a little funk!

“MALAGUENA” – Jan Davis - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
One of the greatest standards of all time and a favorite of millions!  Wanna know what Jan Davis did to this classic, back in the 1960′s?  As usual, he rocked it up, with an electric guitar on a funky track, mega castanets, plus an interesting horn treatment.  
Give it 5 stars for it’s cool Spanish flavor!

“NAUTILUS” - B. Bumble and The Stingers - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
This unusual ditty ended up on the ‘flip’ (back side) of the original hit, “Nut Rocker.”  
The song was named after the famous submarine, in case you’re wondering why bubbles are part of the theme!  No one was ever told just how these bubbles were recorded, but next time you visit a restroom, you’ll hear them!  Davis on guitar and Bob Roberts on keys also shared the vocal parts.  These two worked well together on a lot of the B. Bumble songs.  They knew how to write and arrange melodies, and ”Nautilus” shows off a great little melody.

“PIECE OF MY HEART” – Jan Davis – ROCK VOCAL
A monster hit by the late, great Janis Joplin, is back with one of the best gravel-voiced male vocal renditions by Davis on his electric guitar, while dishin’ out SOLID ROCK all the way for this classic chart topper!  During the recording session break, Davis was interviewed and disclosed that he was certain no one could match Joplin’s sound, so he didn’t even try…He just wanted to produce a male version and from our point of view, it’s one you will always remember!  Listen free at iTunes on CD “Diversified Genres” – Song #2.
 
 
“LOST IN SPACE” – Jan Davis - ROCK INSTRUMENTAL
Here’s a Thriller for y’all!  Imagine an electric guitar lead on a Rocket!  A lonely dude gets lost in outer-space and Davis managed to paint that picture, a bit scary, enough to frighten anyone on the same journey, as he’s actually lost in space, with nothing but a guitar to keep him company!  Listen free at iTunes on CD – Jan Davis-Boss Guitar – Song #8.
 
 
“GUITAR STAR” – Jan Davis – POP/SURF VOCAL
One of the few duets recorded by Davis, teaming up with a surf-buddy for truly Outrageous surf sounds, combined with Davis’ guitar twangin’ throughout!  These two guys latched onto a vocal gimmick that you’ll want to imitate.  Soon, you’ll hear yourself singing”Guitar Star!”

“BABY MASH”- B. Bumble and The Stingers - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
The B. Bumble gang did it again, when Brahm’s Lullaby was mashed up with funk.  Many parents have sung “Lullaby and Good Night” to their babies…Maybe you remember them singing it to you as a child?  If so, you’ll recognize it once you listen and will probably say “Oh, yeah, THAT one!”

“FLAMENCO FUNK” – Jan Davis - POP INSTRUMENTAL
Interesting story here, some trivia at the time of release by UNI Records on this single track.  Mason Williams had just released his “Classical Gas” on Warner Bros.  All of a sudden, there’s Classical guitar versus Flamenco guitar in a huge battle for radio airplay!  UNI going up against Warner Bros.?  Forget about it.  This “Flamenco Funk” gem had to take a back-seat upon it’s release, but it has held it’s own on the years to follow!  Hear for yourself.

“EL MACHO” – Jan Davis & The Spain Gang - LATIN POP INSTRUMENTAL
It’s the violins behind Davis’ acoustic guitar lead that gives a true Latin feel to Jan’s “El Macho” composition.  Even though there’s a beginning similar to “Bumble Boogie,” this track veers-off into a different direction.  Maybe Jan was feeling sentimental about the B. Bumble era?  We have no idea…just a hunch!  Since no one knows, who cares?

“DAMASCUS” – Jan Davis - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
One of Jan’s early compositions, this Arabic-sounding electric guitar plows through with an enhancing middle-eastern melody and a great steady drum beat!  How could Davis know when writing this, that there would ever be a battle-torn situation, as there is now in this area of the world?  So enjoy the sound of yester-years in Damascus.

“APPLE KNOCKER” – B. Bumble and The Stingers - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
Here’s one you may not have heard by the B. Bumble gang.  They were knockin’ out funky classics as fast as they could and decided to really funk-up the “William Tell Overture.”  If anyone remembers the old theme song played whenever the Lone Ranger appeared, that’s the famous overture!
Listen free at eMusic on CD – “Blast From The Past” – Song #8.
 
 
“THE UNWANTED” – Jan Davis - OLDIES INSTRUMENTAL
A&M Records went all-out with a dynamic production, complete with drums and a string section to compliment Davis’ enchanting, danceable, guitar melody.  Why then, did the big-wigs at A&M decide to back this stunning melody with a rollicking surf duet like “Guitar Star?”  Talk about mixed-genres!  OK, so they wanted the best of both styles to please all radio audiences…Right?  You decide, once you hear it!

“DARK BLUE” – Jan Davis & The Spain Gang - POP - SMOOTH JAZZ INSTRUMENTAL
Absolutely beautiful!  If you’re into smooth jazz, you are in for a real TREAT.  One superb string section, together with keys and soft drums, back up Davis’ brilliant electric guitar lead and combined, they mesh into a haunting theme.  A melancholy song for some, yet very easy going and relaxing in this jazz genre for others.
Listen free at iTunes on CD – “Rock ‘N’ Flamenco” – Song #18.
 
 
“DREAMER” – Jan Davis - POP INSTRUMENTAL
What, a Surf Ballad?  Oh yeah, it IS.  Hey, all you surfers out there, after a stint on and off the waves, you wanna kick back on the sand and relax with your main squeeze and listen to this easy-going electric number by Davis.  Need relaxation?  This song will do just that!  After listening, you won’t even want to clean the sand out of your swim suit before dancing a slow one on the beach, around a campfire!

“SLAMMIN’ FANDANGO” – Jan Davis & The Spain Gang - LATIN POP INSTRUMENTAL
The Fandango is a gypsy dance style, included in most Flamenco dancer’s repertoire.  It’s also a guitar vamp accompanying dancers.  Here, Davis plays a rockin’ Flamenco lead guitar with intricate fingering all his peers appreciate, while he’s slammin’ this one home!  Flamenco purists may regard this as an insult to the craft, but Davis didn’t intend to insult…just to pump it up with a little funk!
