A gasket is the vital seal between two castings to stop any seepage or weeping. I think we had the latter in the last programme. You are just the job, Joe.

This song is overrun with CB radio interference.

I was attracted by the Elvis and Tony Joe, and the need to wake up unnaturally early (for me).

Serpico was sent to the hospital that was across the street from the apt I lived in for 8 years. Of course it was decommissioned in 1982 and it was a homeless shelter by the time I lived across the way.

Joe I just got here during Greg Kihn,but i'm having fun....And i always thought "DC" meant washington dc in that song. (regarding the u.s.influence on ja policy.)

They carved their name into someone's chest for an album cover in the 80s.

I used to run into Serpico in Chatham NY from time to time. I think he still lives in the area.
Avatar Thu. 8/29/13 11:15am Joe McG:

@coelacanth: Maybe you're right! I just assumed he was talking about a cop.

Wonder what The Beatles thought of this version? They are plucking circles around them, I think.

What a shapely set!

Joe McG -What Cecile said makes sense too...(I should know it in my head by now) So...Is this the excellent covers set?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/29/13 11:28am Jeff:

Even though it's in a completely different style, that bluegrass "I've Just Seen a Face" triggered a sudden recollection of those Big Daddy records in the early '80s (on Rhino, I think). Like the eponymous one and "Meanwhile...Back In The States".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/29/13 11:31am Brian in UK:

Think I have a cold coming on and I was bought some Jim Beam Rye for Fathers Day, hard to find over here as most people prefer the subtle shades of Scottish whisky. Might have to take a snifter or two later. Purely medicinal you understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/29/13 11:32am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - You know they have a new one coming out, right?
Avatar Thu. 8/29/13 11:34am Joe McG:

@Jeff: I'm tempted to play another version of that song! Dillards do it, too.

I was first introduced to Mr Beam around 1970 by a guy in the US Navy, he got it from the PX at a silly price. You can only get it here at specialist shops believe it or not.

trish I would not consider mixing it. Our Scottish friends do like to add a little water to their own whisky at times. Not my cup of tea so to speak.
My wife just made some wonderful Rhubarb & Vanilla jam as well as Rhubarb & Ginger jam.

Joe, I am really enjoying every single thing you've played. Thank you.

My local tea & yarn shop sells marmalade made with Jameson -- tempting.

@Brian : Both jams sound yum. I know a pear+ginger and strawberry+rhubarb. Those combos sound very tasty. Mm.

@simon I am a bit of a purist regarding marmalade, just Seville oranges. Heaven sent.

I dunno -- it's kind of tempting to paste in illustrations of all the fornications going on in those Gideons.

I hate to say it, but the wildflower marmalade from IKEA is pretty tasty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/29/13 11:56am Brian in UK:

@trish root ginger is steeped in the rhubarb overnight, then removed and crystallised ginger added at the end.
