In Nova Scotia, you can find individuals practicing their pipes outward to the sea as if on some Scottish moor.

Bagpipes reproduce in relative seclusion, preferring the cover of darkness. Perhaps a votive candle, for effect.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/10/13 10:34am tim from champaign:

This weekend I'm DJing a wedding. I've got a bit of a technical dilemma which you guys might be able to help with. The groom requested for the last song of the night to be a slow jam being Prince's "Purple Rain" and then follow it up with "I Would Die 4 U" to send things out.

So how can I seamlessly go from "Purple Rain" to "I Would Die 4 U"? The catch is I'm spinning vinyl only and only have one copy of the Purple Rain LP. There would be a few seconds of awkwardness while I cued up "I Would Die 4 U" and that would kill momentum.

I had a friend at work who was a recording artist. I told her i saw Nancy Griffith at Carnegie Hall and loved it. Nancy was the opener. She asked who the headliner was and i said John Prine, but i never cared for him and walked out. She said, John Prine signed me, and walked out of the room.

This is the must stirring paean to Western Wisconsin I have ever heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/10/13 11:34am Brian in UK:

Now Nancy Griffith has a mighty powerful voice. Used to be married to Eric Taylor. If you want some serious songs, he is your man.

It's wonderful shows such as Joe's that make me grateful to contribute to the cause. Thanks Joe!

Eric Taylor? Thanks Brian.

@parq - the fingers remark was *not* in the 1 page thingy from liner notes (to what record? can't recall.)
Avatar    Thu. 10/10/13 11:39am KP:

Oops, "Nanci." I also used to be big fan of Iris Dement. I got a Christmas card her.

Herb, I just remember reading that quote the first time Rolling Stone wrote about Prine in the early 70s. God, the things we remember when we can't even remember what we came into the room for.

Linda Thompso's voice is holding up well.

@Parq I totally agree. What did you say?

@Jay: Gee, I hope it wasn't anything too serious! I was there this summer, so I know what you're talking about.

tim f. c., if you are still there, the obvious solution is to lay out the $4 max it should take to buy a second copy of purple rain. I'd loan you mine if that were feasible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/10/13 11:46am kirk from beer city usa:

damn, looks like I missed (most of) a great show. ac/dc, gary numan, linda thompson...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/10/13 11:47am tim from champaign:

Yeah, I thought of that Kirk. Believe it or not, I can't find a copy in town at the moment.

How was St. Vitus?
