Love the way this show is starting out, Bob. The Doo Wop and R&B is great stuff.

Heading to the garden, outdoor speakers and a whole Saturday of FMU - music to weed and water by.......
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 9:58am Mike East:

also good music to laze about by...I'm on the tail end of my vacation and feeling very motivated to do nothing.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:07am Mike East:

still lookin for a good copy of the Who Sell Out. How do you guys feel about vinyl reissues vs. original pressings?
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:09am SmokinJ:

Get both!
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:13am Mike East:

someday I hope to have that kind of money and space...but for now, I'm somewhat limited
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:15am Paul Dee:

@Mike I'm no record snob but I prefer originals. More history there. Also depending on which shop y7ou go to, originals can be much cheaper. i got my copy of the who sell out for something like $7.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:17am Mike East:

Wow! The original at my record shop is not in that great condition and its 40 bucks! That's why I'm still searching

Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:25am Paul Dee:

I say make an offer on the $19.95 vg+/vg+ copy. you could probe get it for $18+shipping.
  Sat. 8/17/13 10:25am David in ATL from NJ:

I'll never get tired of hearing Steely Dan (in any form) each week, Bob. Thanks for sharing some of these lost tracks. Only fitting since the record companies were so cheap when they put out the box set and greatest hits packages.
  Sat. 8/17/13 10:26am mrmucho:

Is that Becker on the backing vocals? Can't believe they waited six years or so to put this one out.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:39am Mike East:

cool, thanks, Paul.

Oh Bob, you just know Toddophonic Todd is going to give you such a hard time the next he subs for somebody. Loving the show as usual.

Orff Music For Children discography page. Not complete, I think, but it lists several issues:

Bob, do you know of Jonathan King? His cover of Satisfaction is amazing.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:50am Paul Dee:

@RC, Todd is actually in for Michael Shelley today
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:51am Sean B.:

GREAT-fun show today Bob!.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:54am Sean B.:

Todd-o-phonic? Filling in for Mike today? guys?.That should be fun.
Avatar Sat. 8/17/13 10:58am Mike East:
