Japanese Skull Controversy This odd photograph was published in the May 22, 1944 issue of Life magazine. It shows the girlfriend of an American soldier writing her beau a thank-you note for sending her part of the skull from a dead Japanese soldier. The photo inspired overwhelmingly negative reposnses from Life readers. Furthermore, it was a propaganda bonanza for the Japanese who used it to portray Allied servicemen as barbaric. Indeed, the mistreatment of enemy corpses was outlawed by the Geneva Convention in 1929. The soldier who mailed the partial skull stateside was reprimanded.

Expressway To Your Heart-The Soul Survivors I posted Venus by the Shocking Blue and surprised many that it was sung by a woman. Believe it or not the lead vocals for the Soul Survivors are white.

Shocking Blue- Venus Shocking Blue was a Dutch rock band from The Hague, the Netherlands, formed in 1967. Their biggest hit, "Venus," went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1970, and the band had sold 13.5 million discs by 1973, but the group disbanded in 1974. Bet you thought it was a male vocal like me-NOPE! Mariska Veres had a very powerful contralto voice, distinct from other females. She did not smoke, drink, or experiment with drugs. When she joined Shocking Blue she made it clear to the other band members that romantic relationships were not going to happen.

Jefferson - The Colour of My Love After hearing Music Maiden's posting of Baby Take Me in Your Arms, I started thinking about the other Jefferson song - "The Colour of My Love" - included here. It only charted to #68, not as high as "Baby...", which hit #23, four months later in December, 1969. Jefferson was the pseudonym for Geoff Turton. Geoff's original claim to fame was as a (co-lead) singer for the Rockin' Berries, a rock group getting its start in the late 1950's, in Birmingham, England, but with other members in their line-up. I posted one of their hits separately under The Rockin' Berries.

Hes In Town  - The Rockin Berries The Rockin' Berries was a "Brumbeat group" from Birmingham, England, which by the early 60's ended up having two lead singers. One was Geoff Turton, who later went on to a solo career, then calling himself: Jefferson. But while still with the Rockin' Berries, they were heard by an American record producer who suggested they cover a Carole King Gerry Goffin song recently released by the Tokens "He's In Town". The Rockin' Berries version is very similar to that from The Tokens, and a favorite I really haven't chosen yet. In England, The Rockin' Berries actually had a greater hit with their version, Number 3 than did The Tokens in the States, Number 43. Look for their version under The Tokens.
