But whatever Betsy's playing: Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
So I guess it balances out.
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:22pm Betsy:

Hi! Try this: http://www.arthurmag.com/2009/07/28/headneck-bonanza-doug-sahm-live-in-1972-with-leon-russell-and-the-dead/
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:49pm Dave B in NYC:

is it me, or is this out of phase/dead channel on the stream. Music strong/vocals weak
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:51pm Betsy:

Hi Dave, are you barely hearing the vocals? It sounds ok in here, but it's not the best recording...I'll check my levels, thanks.
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:54pm Dave B in NYC:

last two songs sounded wonky. as if whatever channel the vocals were on was dead.
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:56pm Betsy:

Huh. Thanks for letting me know. This tune sounds ok in here now, lemme know if you keep having trouble hearing the vox. -B
  Mon. 8/3/09 8:57pm denizen:

thanks. that werewolf track was amazing. should be played along with deleuze becoming animal
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:03pm Betsy:

Hey Denizen, yes I LOVE Coyle & Sharpe! Everything on there is hilarious.
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:12pm seang:

Diggin this Betsy, a memphis vibe goin on
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:14pm Betsy:

Hey seang, glad you're enjoying it!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:24pm Jason B:

Got you streaming in PDX right now. Sent you a note about DLing rar stuff.
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:25pm Betsy:

Hey Jason! I saw it -I'm psyched to check out the mix! Thanks.
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:30pm Dan:

Checkin' in for a sec from work before they drag me away again - and HOT DAMN this looks like a good show so far! Keep it rockin', girl!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:31pm Betsy:

Wow, thanks Dan-O! Good luck at work.
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:41pm Rampler:

Hi Betsy!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:42pm Betsy:

Hi Rampler!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:52pm Tom L (Hallock Hill):

YO Betsy. Just went on FB by accident really and read your status, so here I am for a few. How are you? So far amazing stuff for me!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:53pm Betsy:

Hey there! I still want that Baby Grandmothers tune!! ;)

Doin' great Tom, glad you're here. -B
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:55pm Tom L (Hallock Hill):

Just e-mailed it to you!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:58pm Betsy:

Hey thanks Tom, got it!
  Mon. 8/3/09 9:59pm Tom L (Hallock Hill):

This Sandy Denny is incredible. Who is the electric guitar player?
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:01pm Betsy:

Hmm, I just assumed it's Blind Richie Boy Thompson, but I don't know!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:05pm Dan:

Oh my god - one of my top tracks from my all-time favorite Pretties record! You just made my evening. ;)
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:08pm Tom L (Hallock Hill):

Best Bill Fay track ever. Just ahead of "Methane River." Awesome. You are of course right about Sir Richard the Blind Thompson.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:08pm Betsy:

Oh, yaaay!! Yeah, I love that song.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:09pm Betsy:

Tom, I only know this one and Cannon's Plain - wanna hear more
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:10pm Tom L (Hallock Hill):

The orchestration is surreal and amazing. Mind blowing. If you want to hear more you came to the right place. I have it all... You know Wilco frequently covers "Be Not So Fearful," right? Jim O'Rourke introduced Fay to Tweedy and he loves him.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:10pm Dan:

Just FYi, that Bill Fay tune was "Screams in the Ears," not "Some Good Advice". (That was on the flip side.) Oh man - Donovan now? NIIIIIIICE!!!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:11pm Betsy:

Ha! Thanks Dan - you are bailing me out ONCE AGAIN! Discographical details. Ugh.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:12pm Betsy:

Guess the song title's kind of a big detail. ;)
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:12pm Tom L:

Excellent point, Dan. Didn't notice that. Don't worry Betsy, it does not affect the awesomeness of the song.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:15pm Dan:

Agreed. Total awesomeness indeed.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:15pm Tom L:

Betsy--I remember the first show of yours I heard you played "The Mystery" by the Shiva Lillas off of the "Sound of Ascencion" disk--I sought that disk out (not easy to do!) and it is wild stuff. Hidden track 16 needs to be referred to the next time you are in San Francisco...
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:17pm Betsy:

Oh yeah, I listened to the silence for a long time on that last track, 'cause I knew there was something in there. My friend does yoga to that Shiva LIllies song!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:23pm meadows:

great show, betsy prime time.
love that 'take me to the water' book. dust to digital never disappoints.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:26pm Betsy:

Oh, Meadows! Thanks and see you SOON!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:34pm meds:

p.s. almost called you from prospect park sat. night. shoulda.
yeah, see you soon. in a dress i presume.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:36pm Betsy:

I was on Cape Cod Saturday! Yep, dress. See you soon. ;)
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:42pm Mike Sin:

It was cool to hear that version of "Somebody's Watching You" by Little Sister. Thanks. That track actually charted "back in the day." In addition, I'd guess that was the first use of a primitive drum/rhythm machine on a commercial record....
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:43pm Betsy:

Oh yeah, SLy & the Family Stone have a version too, don't they? Anyway, glad you liked it! I love the way it sounds - myabeyou're right about the drum machine
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:43pm Tom L:

Harry N. is so ridiculously good.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:44pm Betsy:

Agreed. This song espesh kills me
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:46pm Jason B:

Chaka Kahn also does a version on as live record. The flip is another fav. Stanga. Do you have the XI9 or Joe Hicks stuff on Stone Flower? THanks for all the great stuff, gotta put the kids to bed.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:47pm Betsy:

I don't know X19 or Joe Hicks or anything of which you speak! G'night Jason!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:48pm saintpeg:

Thanks for saving my Monday night! Have loved every minute.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:49pm Toronto Jim:

Mike Sin: Was just ruminating on your topic, and "Popcorn" came to my mind. There aren't any "drum"-sounds on it, but the whole very staccato thing is undeniably "rhythmic". I shrug... Who knows... But anyway, that tune was first recorded in 1969.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:49pm Betsy:

Oh, hey saintpeg! Thanks so much.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:51pm ?:

Little Sister had two singles on Sly's Stoneflower label as did aforementioned XI9 and Joe Hicks. All featured early drum machine spookiness. G'night
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:51pm Betsy:

YOu mean Popcorn by Hot Butter? I learned a dance to that song in my church youth group.
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:56pm Tom L:

Awesome Betsy, have a great night. I'm running downstairs to get my Bobby Gentry album--haven't listened to it in years. When your show is over, I'll dive in. Thanks for the memory!
  Mon. 8/3/09 10:58pm Betsy:

Cool, have a great night with Bobbie!
  Fri. 8/7/09 8:50pm Grassy Point Jim:

Thanks for a great show, heard it on the 90.1, happy to get to hear my favorite tunes again on the pop up..keep up the good work
