If It Ain't Stiff, It Ain't Worth a F**k

From 1979 and the Stiff Records label, please enjoy the most blues-wailing and infectiously catchy "Win or Lose" by the Lew Lewis Reformer.


Featuring the greatest echoed handclap in the history of recorded music, and I include the one in the Zombies' "Tell Her No," which pales by comparison.

Seriously, I fricking love this song. If I wasn't in a wheelchair, I'd be fronting a rock band that used it as a set opener right this very minute.

In any case, you can download it HERE. As always, if the authorization has expired by the time you get there, I'll be happy to send you the mp3.

Never heard that before. Loved it. What a great guitar part and, yes, that is the coolest single handclap in history.

I'm sensing a Listo topic: "Time of the Season," "Come together," what else?

That track I did with Glen had a great clap-track, too, if I do say so myself, but it was mostly because Glen put down such a great groove.

The site said that the file had already reached its maximum allowance of ten downloads. Would you please send me the mp3? mythicalbeasts at gmail.com is me.

Thanks!

(I just found your blog this morning. It's great. Tell Bristol Palin she's scary for me.)
