Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Didya hear about the moron who tied Rover to the railroad tracks? He wanted to train his dog.

16 coaches long? don't think so.

Uncle Michael sent me. What did I miss last week?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:08pm Uncle Michael:

Not too much...a tech meltdown.

The vet said I needed to spade my dog, but all I had was a shovel.

Sorry, gonna need more tea before the jokes get any better.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/13 12:11pm efd:

ha, I have this Dixie Dregs song on a single - I think I've used it as a music bed on a Singles Going '70s show. (Hi Michael!)
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:12pm Uncle Michael:

Hi Evan. I played the shit out of that Dregs album in my odd post-prog phase....ah...1978.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:15pm pacific standard simon:

There's a POST-prog phase?!
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:16pm Uncle Michael:

Hey...we thought it was over!
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:17pm pacific standard simon:

This Exodus mash-up is sick and dope. Is that what the kids say?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:19pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, that's what the kids are saying right now.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:26pm pacific standard simon:

Our weather is synchronized today, boss. No rain, here, though.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:29pm Stanley:

Now that's an invitation no woman could refuse.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:29pm pacific standard simon:

I used to call up the midnight DJ at KZST and request this song -- and he'd play it, too.

"Boogie" = Too deep for me...
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:30pm Uncle Michael:

High brow Internet radio.

How about an all-Warner/Reprise Sampler set someday?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:36pm Uncle Michael:

That would be a great show to do, Simon. I have about 3/4 of them on vinyl.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:37pm pacific standard simon:

I don't care if he did write it -- Leon Russell is getting his ass kicked by BB King, here!

Oh Nils, baby... just awesome.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:41pm duke:

For some weird reason this was one of my Mom's favorite songs.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:43pm Uncle Michael:

THAT'S JUST WEIRD.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:44pm pacific standard simon:

That's how little Hinky Dinky fans are made.
  Fri. 10/18/13 12:44pm Listening Out There:

No predicting moms' tastes, I say. I withstood regular onslaughts of Johnny Mathis for years...
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:45pm pacific standard simon:

Mathis was my mom's favorite, too. Despite that, I still like his early stuff.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:47pm pacific standard simon:

Dad was a June Christie fan, and she's mighty fine, too.

Enjoy, NGH!
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:52pm Uncle Michael:

June Christie is terrific.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:55pm Brian in UK:

Songs of Praise was/is a Sunday evening programme over here featuring hymns and readings from a different church each week.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:56pm Brian in UK:

This tune was never taken as the opening credits, oddly enough.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:57pm Uncle Michael:

Well, that's a wasted opportunity. The Church of Roy Wood should have been featured.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 12:58pm pacific standard simon:

And Arthur Brown.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:00pm Uncle Michael:

This is just a little bombastic, I think.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:02pm Uncle Michael:

What's this song about?

It's about three minutes too long.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:03pm Brian in UK:

You can perhaps see why punk got a head of steam.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:04pm Uncle Michael:

I can.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:04pm Stanley:

99 and a half is fine by me. Heck you can't have everything
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:04pm Brian in UK:

Great to see what a hearty audience you have Uncle Michael.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:05pm Uncle Michael:

It warms mine.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:06pm Brian in UK:

You can almost carbon date that intro.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:06pm Stanley:

Hi Brian - took the plunge myself during Doug's show. Though holding some moulah back for tomorra morning.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:06pm duke:

This set sounds like the Church of Hinky Dinky
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:07pm Brian in UK:

Me too, Stanley. Go to get back to pizza construction.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:08pm Stanley:

Pizza...good. I'm just thinking of nipping out for a fermented beverage.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:08pm Brian in UK:

.......and a beverage.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:09pm Brian in UK:

Love to join you but..........
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:09pm pacific standard simon:

At the wedding, last weekend, the Rabbi instructed us on the informal nature of interjections & refrains of "AMEN" -- he said that us non-believers could use alternative phrases, like "YES" or "UH-HUH"... so I went with "YAY TEAM".
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:10pm Stanley:

@pss - Yo man?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:12pm pacific standard simon:

@Stanley - Sure, but no "YO MAMMA".
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:14pm Uncle Michael:

"das' right!"
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:16pm duke:

@pss I assume "Fuckin' right" might have been a tad inappropriate
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:17pm pacific standard simon:

I'll refrain from quoting the politically incorrect lyrics we kids used to sing to "Daniel Boone".
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:19pm pacific standard simon:

Ah, the answer song to "Imagine"!
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:20pm Uncle Michael:

My favorite SD track.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:20pm Brian in UK:

Is this one of those singles with tracks taken from different albums?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:21pm Uncle Michael:

Possibly so.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:24pm pacific standard simon:

So many great ones, it's hard to have a favorite. "Everyone's Gone To The Movies" is right up there for me.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:24pm Uncle Michael:

King of the World is another favorite. And Gold Teeth.
  Fri. 10/18/13 1:24pm Listening Out There:

The Buoys must be one of those "answer" bands...to The Gulls, of course... :)
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:25pm Uncle Michael:

I think this Buoys track kicks "Timothy's" ass.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:27pm pacific standard simon:

Bouys and Gulls together, now there's a combo.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:41pm pacific standard simon:

My wife looked at the folders on my computer desktop and sneered, "Fairport Convention?!" What's wrong with that woman?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:42pm Uncle Michael:

srsly
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:47pm Uncle Michael:

I'm pretty happy with the 58% of goal so far but it would be great if one of you Fonzis could whack the jukebox and get it moving again.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:47pm hyde:

love love love this Everly Bros song
  Fri. 10/18/13 1:49pm Listening Out There:

Phil and Don are a fav of Graham Nash. Just finished reading his book. It's pretty good...
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:50pm Uncle Michael:

I'm glad you folks enjoyed that one.
  Fri. 10/18/13 1:54pm Listening Out There:

Back to the train for a sec: Looks like the one at the end of "North by Northwest"...? The end credits roll over the top of it...
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 1:55pm Uncle Michael:

I don't doubt it for a moment.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:00pm pacific standard simon:

I withheld any possible rude comments about ELO in honor of your mother.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

Good move!
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:01pm Uncle Michael:

Anything I play that anyone doesn't like...is for mom.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:02pm pacific standard simon:

That's how to work a crowd, Elmer.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:03pm duke:

Willie really worked that horn riff. It was similar in a couple of his songs.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:04pm Uncle Michael:

I need to go to Willie Tee school.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:12pm pacific standard simon:

Doug, my mom and I all thank you.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:29pm Brian in UK:

London used to be known as The Smoke because of the dreadful air pollution in the Victorian age & after. They were a London band I believe. Well smoke & sugar lumps who knows.
  Fri. 10/18/13 2:29pm Listening Out There:

Paul & Linda = Better than Wings
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:30pm Uncle Michael:

Might mean several things. I think I know about the sugar lumps.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:30pm Uncle Michael:

I dunno...I'm a pretty big Wings fan.

No ambiguity there.

...and I'm back. Just returned from purchasing a bow for my daughter's viola. For this price, we should've gotten the entire horse and not just a few hairs.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:31pm pacific standard simon:

@Listening - We are going to have to agree to disagree, unless I hear a P+L song better than "Jet".

Next week we get the viola. And a nice barrel for me to wear.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:35pm Uncle Michael:

next week is Singles Going Steady and I plan to do about a half a show's worth of 7" vinyl from my "punk or new wave" days.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:35pm pacific standard simon:

@Doug - and a fresh copy of The Velvet Underground with Nico to go with it.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/13 2:36pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: well, who knows where exactly the hairs came from.

Is it long enough to string a viola bow?
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:39pm pacific standard simon:

possibly
Avatar Fri. 10/18/13 2:41pm Doug Schulkind:

Please, no one ask me to take a bow or I'll be arrested for grand larceny. Hey-O!

HAH HAH HAH...YESSS!

Keep it up, Doug, and I'll give the REST of your pledge to Uncle Michael.
Avatar    Fri. 10/18/13 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

I'd just squander it.

Uncle Michael is more than worthy!

Can you imagine hitting a pole and having spiders explode all over you?

Poles are full of spiders? Who knew?! Ah well, being Irish, I know what WE'RE full of.

I also recall this LP as being one I was ready to buy just for the cover alone, knowing nothing about the contents.
Avatar Fri. 10/18/13 2:58pm Jeff Golick:

Remember not knowing what a record sounded like, and having no real way to hear it?

Me neither.
