To the bridge, good Gawd!

Hey Ted!
  Thu. 5/3/12 1:11pm Debbie D:

Happy Birthday, JB!

King of Soul live at the Apollo--now that's a LOW DOWN!!
Greetings Fiveash!
  Thu. 5/3/12 1:31pm Tony:

Mr. Frankie Valli's birthday is today as well!
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 1:35pm Fiveash:

Didn't realize it was FV's Bday too. Whoops! But I bet Spazz has something planned for that...
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 1:42pm Fiveash:

Hiya Matt, Tony, Debbie, and other great contemporary thinkers. Thanks for being here.
  Thu. 5/3/12 1:43pm Matt from Springfield:

"Give the drummer some" origin!! Clyde Stubblefield!

James is the hardest working boogaloo-er in show business.

Soul Brother Ichiban!
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:06pm earwax:

cool show!
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 2:10pm Fiveash:

Danke earwax!
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fiveash: Do you have the Flying Lizards version of "Sex Machine"? It's hysterically funny!
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 2:13pm Fiveash:

MFS: Sure don't. Will investigate even though I don't like hilarity.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:18pm Matt from Springfield:

It's in the same spirit as their more famous version of "Money" :)
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:19pm seang:

ain't nothing wrong with this
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:20pm Ted:

Excellent choice, even though that guy is marked for death.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Agree w/ the others, "Pool Hall Richard" is legendary. One of The Faces' best songs!
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 2:22pm Fiveash:

We'll get him one of these days, Ted.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

An old R&B singer with the first name Otis is virtually guaranteed to be good.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:38pm Matt from Springfield:

I like Neil Young's direction (or rather, many directions) much more than Rick's. Though it's interesting to think if the Mynah Birds had stayed together--Neil might have retained Crazy Horse as a side project, but he probably would have stayed in a harder rock/soul direction in general. He may not have released his country-ish material in that case.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:40pm Matt from Springfield:

While Rick James was frequently down on his luck, there is of course a great side to his music as well. The Mynah Birds split up allowed for solo Rick, Buffalo Springfield and Steppenwolf as we know them to form.
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 2:41pm Fiveash:

One thing we can all agree on: there would have been a lot of cocaine.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:41pm earwax:

I like Neil better in general, but out of the two songs you play I definitely prefer Rick's.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Already hazardous levels of coke would only have increased exponentially.

Ohio Players!!
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:45pm Holly in NC:

Well heck - looks like I'm late to a fine, fine party!
Yay Syl.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:49pm Matt from Springfield:

I first heard "I'm Blue" as a fragment in the Hairspray movie--liked it and wondered for years just what it was. Later I found it was a young Tina Turner and Ikettes!
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly!
Fortunately a recording will be made of this party for you to listen. But still, everything's more fun to catch live!
Avatar    Thu. 5/3/12 2:53pm Fiveash:

Hi Holly, nice of you to join us!
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:55pm Holly in NC:

Glad to be here! Y'know, this songs reminds me that I *do* like the Who.
  Thu. 5/3/12 2:57pm G:

Some tasteful oldskool 45 spinnin' goin' on up in here...
  Thu. 5/3/12 3:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Rockin' show today! With a screamin' James Brown set!
Thanks Fiveash!
  Thu. 5/3/12 3:01pm seang:
