That Fly Belongs To Me


Lanz Miles - That Fly Belongs To Me
There sure is a lot going on in this song. R&B vocals, Country/Jazz instrumentation, Outer Space, Singing Flies... What more could you want? And just dig that label art!

I picked up a record called the The World of Las Vegas by Ken "Nevada" Maines mostly for the lp cover of all the old Vegas hotel/casino signs. There is a version of this song on that album minus the vocals, replaced by hammond organ. Your description of this song describes the whole record. There is a song called "The shooting of Governor Wallace ( Jack - Bobby and Martin Luther too) that goes beyond bad taste. Let me know if anyone wants me to convert it to mp3s. johnnyvendetta@hotmail.com

Now that you mention it, I see that both sides of this record were written by Ken Maines.
