The Beach Boys Smile set is supposedly coming out in July. This is very happy news, of course, but it's a shame that it's coming out after Brian's rerecorded version. The release of Smile should be a major event, but I'm afraid that the timing will make this a bit of an anticlimax.

Was Holsapple writing about a Cowsills single?
Sat. 5/7/11 9:55am miketp:

Always loved the Spoonful's appearance playing "Fishin' Blues" in Woody Allen's What's Up Tiger Lily? Apparently Woody hates the movie and says that the Spoonful's scenes were inserted by the producer without his approval. But it's a great flick, Spoonful and all, no matter what he says...
Sat. 5/7/11 10:38am clarke:
Picture Sleeve is a Chris Stamey song - so it is not about Cowsills. it is about several different records.
Sat. 5/7/11 10:43am clarke:
just woke up and looking at the playlist - i missed most of another fine, fine show.....
oh, it is quite unlikely that Holsapple would be writing about The Cowsills, at this late date, anyway.;]

You do span the musically globe, Mr. B.

JJ Jackson's high point. After this -- MTV. And I speak for us all when I say Martha Quinn had much more going on.

Supposedly Monk (and his father) were named after an actual 7th century Monk named Hilonius.
And North Coast Brewing sells a Brother Thelonious
Belgian Style Abbey Ale, the sale of which benefits Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz ....the label art is great:
