Friday Night Forgotten Oldie: Listen to what she can all do

Friday Night Forgotten Oldie,+Maria+Muldaur.png

40 years ago this spring and summer, tonight’s featured artist was enjoying her first (and ultimately biggest) hit on the Top 40 charts.

The female vocalist sang a memorable tune about sending a camel to bed, slipping off to a sand dune and kicking up a little dust with no need, and I'll be your belly dancer, prancer, and you can be my sheik.

The recording went up to #6.

A now-defunct Denver underground publication, the Straight Creek Journal in a review of this singer said she “changed octaves like a deranged stock car driver” (Source: Casey Kasem’s American Top 40).

Maria Muldaur has been performing for 50 years, most likely the blues today. Can’t believe I saw her at Summerfest in the mid-70’s, opening for Blood, Sweat, and Tears.

Her follow-up to “Midnight at the Oasis” was a remake of Peggy Lee's early 1960's version written by the famous team of Leiber and Stoller.

This one’s for the ladies. Turn it up and enjoy!
