Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

wikipedia says -- Decca initially conceived Deram Records initially as an outlet for stereo 'Deramic Sound' recordings of contemporary pop and rock music, though not all of the early recordings on Deram used this technique.

hinky dinky time - playing all the love it or hate it songs you've come to know and love or hate.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:41pm Parq:

All too well do I remember that teenage, this-is-the-boy-I'm-going-to-love-forever phase. There's going to be a whole lot of crying in that girl's future, and more to the point, the future of her parents.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:42pm Uncle Michael:

When you get old enough to love and yet, know it's not a forever love...that's kind of bittersweet.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:42pm pacific standard simon:

Parq, you're sounding a bit parental yourself.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:44pm Parq:

PSS, just speaking from experience. The summer my girl was 16 -- sheesh.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:47pm pacific standard simon:

Advise your kids to get into something more life-affirming -- like recreational drugs.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:49pm Uncle Michael:

More promising than romantic attraction...that's for sure.

This Jammed Together record -- is the rest of it like this?
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:57pm Uncle Michael:

Sorry for outing you like that, Simon.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:58pm pacific standard simon:

Chet Baker ghosting for Herb Alpert? I heard that Captain Beefheart used to claim that Alpert had someone in back of him playing his more complicated horn parts in shows.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 12:59pm Uncle Michael:

Not ghosting...aping, more like it.

I hate Frank Zappa, especially the Tiny Lights stuff, so don't play that or any of that other stuff I hate like.

I've never actually visited a parallel universe before. This is kinda' nice.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 1:13pm Uncle Michael:

There are many, many universes.

The perpendicular universe. The asymptotic universe.

I love it when you talk dirty.

It's OK with me if you feel like having a Laura Nyro phase, Uncle Michael.

30 year phase...so far.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 1:25pm KevinfromBayRidge:

good Day to all HDers. Did Albert play a regular guitar left-handed? Or was that Freddie?
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 1:27pm pacific standard simon:

The pictures of Albert show him playing left-handed.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 1:28pm pacific standard simon:

Freddie, right-handed.

Allright !!

Thanks PSS. Yeah he did play a rightie guitar, but with a different tuning ( as per Wiki)

Can you do that with a banjo?

Don't fret about it.

*I* can.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:17pm Brian in UK:

@βrian How's this one for you.
When you toss a banjo into a skip and it hits an accordion that's perfect pitch
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:19pm pacific standard simon:

Why don't people tell cauliflower jokes? I like banjos and accordions.

I'm a bandoneon man, myself.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:21pm Brian in UK:

@simon I am just trying to satisfy demands of the market.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:24pm pacific standard simon:

I need to go to the market and buy a ham shank for the pot of black-eyed peas soaking in the kitchen.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:28pm Uncle Michael:

don't get shanked or shivved, Simon.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:29pm pacific standard simon:

Indeed. The market is always demanding my wallet.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:31pm Brian in UK:

@UM have you got Adam Faith's Green Finger?

Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:31pm Uncle Michael:

I may well have, Brian. Have to dig around.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:32pm pacific standard simon:

Didn't that sound like a Firesign Theatre member (David?) doing the intro to the Mama Cass song?
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:34pm Uncle Michael:

I'll have to give it a closer listen.
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:34pm Brian in UK:

Did Firesign do something on The Byrds Draft Morning?
Avatar Fri. 9/20/13 2:35pm pacific standard simon:

I ate many a hotdog cooked by Norman Greenbaum in his day job in Sonoma County.
