I’ve been listening to HOH for years and I love the show. But I have a question about one of the songs that Dee plays on HOH, “Rock n Party In The Streets” by Axe. I noticed it’s a longer version and I cannot find it at iTunes. I can, however, find at iTunes a shorter 3 min version that isn’t as good as the one that’s played on HOH.
Where’d the version of “Rock n Roll Party…” that Dee plays on HOH come from originally? Where can I find it? Why isn’t it on the CD version of the original LP, “Offering”?
Hope you can answer my questions. Hope this isn’t a waste of your time.

Hey David – dude, it’s never a waste of BuzzChic’s time to help out a HOH’er! (Unless she’s too wasted…, ha ha)
The version of the song you hear on the HOH is from Axe’s compilation “20 Years From Home…” and is actually about 4:30. Unfortunately, it is hard to find. Right now, it’s available at Amazon.com as an import.
Here’s the info – make sure you get Volume 1!
Thanks for listening!
